Always compared to my siblings
I am the fourth of five siblings. Two are fully related siblings while the other two are half related to me. All of them are married, have children, and have careers. I am often held to the same standards as them and when people find out that I don’t have the same successes they do, their opinion of me drops down.
It really hurts me that my siblings have achieved much more than I have. It’s true that they aren’t on the spectrum nor do they have dyscalculia and clinical depression like I do but we all had the same upbringings so why did they succeed while I failed? Why can’t I have the same things they have?
