ESH except for your poor sister. No family should adopt without the entire family's support, precisely to avoid situations like this: a grieving, traumatized adoptee who needs extra love and support, and a resentful, hateful, spiteful biochild feeling pushed out and taking their vitriol out on the new addition. It's not fair on you, and it's not fair on your sister. If your parents didn't discuss this with you, listen to your views, and get your consent before adopting this girl, I don't see how they expected to end up in any other situation, especially with how poorly they've handled the transition. You now have a sister. Legally. For life. They can't expect you to be happy, supportive or actively caring when they didn't ask you if you wanted one in the first place. If you want no relationship with your sister other than "coolly polite strangers living in the same home", they can't really force you. But your behavior towards this poor girl is *reprehensible*. Your showing of your personality is absolutely vile. You are attacking a *13yo* who just *lost her damn mom* because of **your parents' choices**. This kid didn't ask to be orphaned. Trust me, she would much rather have her own mom than have to fight with you and your vicious, bitter bullying for yours. She is making the best of what support is available. She would drop your parents in a heartbeat if it meant she could have one more cuddle with her own. You have *no idea* how much pain she is in. Your issue is with your parents. So take out your shitty behavior on them if you must, drive them away until you really do lose them, but grow the hell up and leave your sister alone. She hasn't done shit to you, and she's already been dealt one of the worst hands life can play. So you get a bit less attention. Boo hoo. Poor ickle OP. If you discuss this maturely with your parents, let them know how you feel and that you never wanted this adoption in the first place, and get into therapy where you can vent your anger and bitterness without hurting anyone, you can probably salvage this. But the more you bully your sister, the more your parents will pull away from you to protect her, *because she needs it*. The more you're aggressive and spiteful to someone much younger than you, the more your friends will realise what kind of person you really are. Your parents fought for years to adopt this girl. They love her. But in a few years' time, when you've pushed everyone away and shown everyone around you what hate and bitterness has made you become, will anyone put the same amount of effort into fighting for you? I was you, a few years ago. I was *nasty*. I was motivated purely by spite and anger and I was absolutely vile to be around. I like to think I've mostly managed to turn it around, so the poison stays on the inside and doesn't hurt anyone else, so people think I'm nice and like to be around me. You *can* still deal with this the right way, set boundaries with your sister (i.e. no using your stuff), and start repairing your relationship with your parents that was so damaged by their choice to adopt. You can work on this nastiness inside you and improve yourself - even if you choose to have no more than an acquaintance relationship with your sister while under the same roof, and even if you have nothing to do with her when you move out. But the way you're thinking, feeling and acting right now? It's poison, OP. It's a slow death, and it'll start by destroying your relationships with your loved ones. They *will* pick the grieving victim over the heartless bully. Sort your shit out. Grow the fuck up. Apologise for what you said and acknowledge that you are bitter and hateful and you were talking shit. Put the blame for your resentment where it belongs: with your parents. And if you can't bring yourself to be kind to your sister, just leave her the hell alone. ETA - people are (rightfully) coming down very hard on you right now. But I think you also need help dealing with the extreme feelings you're experiencing. I don't pull punches, and I don't tolerate shitty teenage attitude, but if you genuinely want some advice on how to cope with those emotions and approach dealing with this constructively from someone who can understand where you're coming from, you can reach out via DM and I'm happy to share with you what worked for me. ETA#2 - thank you, u/femmebeast and u/porkbun90, for the kind awards!
