My sister is prettier than I am. I know it. I’m not very pretty.
Dear Bad Looking Sister,
Ideally, sisters should think of each other as teammates, not rivals, but sisters often do compete and one sister may have strengths, the other does not. Instead of comparing yourself to your sister, become aware of your strengths. Are you friendly? Funny? Artistic? Musical? Great with kids? A runner? A scientist? Cook? Computer genius?
Focus on what you can do and enjoy. As for appearance, what makes you attractive is smiling and feeling good about yourself. If you need a boost, get yourself a great haircut or new vintage clothes. Sometimes a change in style can lead to a change in attitude.
