Caught in the Crossfire: A Tale of Sisterhood, Sacrifice, and Silent Treatment 🤷‍♀️

Caught between her love for her sister and her own exhaustion, our heroine finds herself in a sticky situation. She's flown across countries to help her sister with her newborn and household chores, but her sister's outgoing nature is proving to be a hurdle. As she refuses to join her sister on outings, tensions rise, leading to silent treatments and hurt feelings. Is she wrong for wanting to rest instead of joining her sister's adventures? Or is her sister being unreasonable? Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🌐💭
