I always wonder when looking to siblings which the younger is more better than the elder. Be it in Academics, sports, or even talent.
Doesnt the elder felt any jealousy towards the younger??

During my school days, I came across a sibling that was different. They were the opposite of each other. Appearance, attitude, and of course, their brain.
Yes, I know, everyone is supposed to be unique but in siblings usually, USUALLY, they are similarities. Maybe I’m too blind to spot the similarities,who knows.
Yet the same question keep wondering in my mind. Doesnt the elder felt any jealousy towards the younger??
Lots of movies and dramas shows that these factors can trigger jealousy and hatred among siblings. But then again, I thought, Hey, I’m a big sista my myself!. and I laugh.
Yes, i’m the eldest among the siblings in my family. 1 of 10. (it supposed to be 11 but the 10th passed away in my ummi’s tummy when he was 2 months)
So when I asked the same question towards myself, it was something that never came across my mind, both jealousy and hatred was what i felt a long way back when i was like in standard 4 or five. Why?? because I felt like my father loves my sister more.
Childish right??. But in terms of achievement and talents, I was never jealous what more to hate my siblings like that. I’m not that clever. My brothers and sisters scores more than me in their national exams.
Instead of Jealous, I was PROUD. Yes. Really proud. if they scored, It makes my parents more happy. If not, i’ll be blaming myself cause I may be the part of the reason my lil brothers and sisters didnt score and do well.
So yeah, the answer just sort of come around on its own. I was too busy looking at others, while the answer was in me.. Of Course, The Almighty Lord had given the hints to make me solve it on my own. Alhamdulillah.
I watched an Indonesian movie and realised that I still have a long way to go to be a good sister. May He bless me here and hereafter. Ameen.
