Difficult Situation: “World War 10”


What I am meant to do to try to help solve the situation between my 2 older sisters who are both dating? Should I be listening to them fighting? Is it for me to butt in and say my opinion or making it worse? How do I try to prevent it or stop it in any way I could? What do I do?



  1. First of all, please let me tell you that I am inspired by your concern and your desire to help your sisters.

    In my humble opinion, if you feel that your intervening can have a positive effect and might get your sisters to calm down and stop fighting with each other, I think it would be the correct thing to do. If, however, your older sisters are going to look at their younger sister as “butting in,” it would probably be correct not to get involved, because the chances are that your getting involved will simply exacerbate the situation, which I am sure is absolutely not something you want to do.
