Diply Social Team

We all have our limits, and for one 19-year-old girl, her sister-in-law's constant comparisons to her late sister pushed her over the edge. The older sister-in-law (27) lost her little sister three years ago, but the grieving process seems to have taken a turn for the worse. The young woman has been compared to the late sister in every aspect of her life, from her high school subjects to the way she eats. Despite asking for the comparisons to stop, nothing changed. But when her sister-in-law's behavior escalated, the girl finally snapped. 😤🔥
