Siblings at Odds Over Life Choices and Parents' Health 🥊

Our heroine, a 24-year-old woman, found herself in the middle of a family drama when her brother questioned her decision to live in New York, citing concerns about their parents' health. Despite his own remote lifestyle in Hawaii and plans to move to Asia, he seemed to hold her to a different standard. The conversation left her feeling defensive and upset, especially given his history of unemployment and financial dependence on their parents. This family saga leaves us wondering: Is it fair to impose your own standards on others, especially when you don't live by them yourself? Let's see what the internet has to say about this. 🍿
