I'm 23 years old and I'm jealous of my 16-year-old brother. There I said it. Why am I jealous? My parents just bought him a brand spankin' new, 2010 Mazda 6. Black on black - he picks it up Tuesday and he is getting his license in 3 weeks. Personally, I'd never buy my 16-year-old a brand new car, but my parents thought differently! I'm happy for him, but I am a bit envious at the same time.
I know there have been posts in the past about how children are treated differently by their parents, and this is definitely the case in my family. My mom said she treats my youngest brother much differently because she has felt bad for him over the years - I went to Australia, got engaged, graduated college, and got married. My other brother has been in the Army, and gets a lot of attention because of that, and he just got married. My mom feels like my youngest brother is overshadowed a lot, so she says she doesn't feel guilty giving him more things than we got. Plus, he is the only kid still living at home, so it's almost as if he is an only child.
Has anyone else ever been jealous of their siblings (or anyone) for one reason or another? What for? Were you treated differently than your siblings were?
EDIT - I hope that I didn't come across as an ungrateful biitch in this post. I am very thankful for all that my parents have given me.
