Sibling rivalry can be tough, especially when there's a history of favoritism. My sister and I have had our fair share of ups and downs, but things turned nasty when she insulted my work. I reminded her of her lack of accomplishments and she caused a scene. Now, some family members are saying I went too far.

I'm conflicted, so I'm turning to the Internet for unbiased perspectives. Did I cross the line? Let me know what you think in the comments about the situation.

Olivia favored by parents, I held accountable. Resentment builds overtime.
