Do you have jealous siblings?

I planned the first family trip. We didn't do as much since an aunt traveling with us got sick.

My sister and I didn't do much talking during the trip, and were also in separate hotel rooms.

I feel like a trip, away from all distractions of life, is the perfect time to have conversation and connect.

But it didn't happen.
It's been a week and I haven't heard a word from her.

In the car, I had mentioned something about Niagara falls.
Sister said in a snarky tone " oh so you're going to Canada next💁‍♀️"

I said no.

Out relationship has ALWAYS been strained. Seems like there's nothing I can do to fix it. There has been absolutely no arguments in our life. They (my 2 siblings) are much older.

Your thoughts?
She always has something to say about what I'm doing or what I buy.

As if to imply that I must make alot and do too much and am doing too much spending.

Some of her comments over the years: "Oh you bought a new camera💁‍♀️?"
"Oh you got a new tv, who bought it💁‍♀️?"

Also, she has never been to any of my THREE graduations...not High school, not community college, nor University graduation 🎓
(She did not graduate HS)

Your thoughts?
I kinda wanna just banish them and their kids from my life and continue living as if I were the only child. That's what it feels like anyway.

That's enough, but I'll answer any individual questions

This you'll never fix. It's her issue.

[@1143040,Iwillwait] it's just Soo weird to me. I'm casted out. I have 2 siblings, they are twins. Even though they aren't malicious, I have always felt like they were against me.

[@467302,iamnikki] that must be hard. I am sorry you're going through this.

[@1143040,Iwillwait] I am too, but I'm about to be done with it.

Let her be her and don’t let it affect you and your plans or what you wanna do

I don’t have siblings so I’ll never be in this situation 😅
[c=004A59] You know, you can just banish your sisters, if you want to. My dad had a similar problem with his sisters and he broke off all contact. I have never known my dad's family.[/c]

[@1217106,Vampyr] yea I know. I would like to have family in my life but not when it drags me down. Shouldn't have to TRY to have a relationship with your own sister. It's not like we have different parents or something. We grew up in the same house.
[@467302,iamnikki] [c=004A59]I hear you. My mum and dad complained often about how unnatural dad's sisters were. They behaved like total strangers to us, and we don't know why for sure. When people want to be that way, there's not much you can do except let them go.[/c]
