You’re welcome, JoAnn! I can definitely say that you, and everyone else here, are NOT crazy; but it’s understandable that we’ve been made to believe we are, especially when surrounded by people who don’t get us or who actively shame us for who we are/what we want. I’m sorry that your sister is one of the voices of your gremlin! I think almost everyone would agree that some member (usually more than one) of their family is a loud facet of their gremlin. Which makes sense, because it’s often your family that planted them there in the first place. In the case of your sister, just remember that whatever she says about you is actually just a reflection of her–her fears, her values, her experiences. Even if what she’s saying is about you, it’s really not, because it says way more about her and her own skewed beliefs and perceptions!
