DEAR ABBY: I’ve had a problem with insecurity and jealousy for as long as I can remember.
My parents divorced when I was 4. I have two older sisters who are twins and a half-brother my stepmom and dad had when I was 18.
My sisters were always the popular and favored kids because they were twins. My grandparents took them to twin contests and constantly bragged about their talents. They were popular and were the talk of the school.
I was born legally blind. (I can see, just not well.) I had learning disabilities and have always been overweight. I was bullied at school and had few friends.
Dear Abby: I know they’ll ask where my husband is. What should I say?

I feel like they are keeping things from me. How do I move past my insecurities and jealousy? My sister says I’m being childish. I was always in the twins’ shadow. How do I move past that?
LEFT OUT IN WISCONSIN
DEAR LEFT OUT: I sympathize with what you went through, but you are no longer a child. It is time to quit competing with this sister.
She should not have been sneaking around with your best friend, and he shouldn’t have abetted her. That said, as insecure as a person may feel, they don’t have the right to dictate to others who they may or may not see — all that does is generate resentment.
You might have less anxiety if you interact less with the twins and focus on your own separate relationships. Figure …read more
