Moving in with a stepsibling can be tough, especially when they want to take over your space. But what happens when that space was just renovated to finally feel like home? This is the dilemma that one 15-year-old girl is facing after her stepsister moved in and wants to take over her newly renovated room. Despite having to share her small space and give up her bed, the teen has drawn the line at letting her stepmom paint over her grey and blue geometric design with the childish pink walls that she covered up with her own money. With tensions running high and no easy solution in sight, the teen is struggling to maintain the last bit of control she has in her own home. Is she being stubborn, or is her stepmom inconsiderate? The comments and reactions are sure to provide some insight.
