When your younger sister gets married before you.
Yes, my younger sister did get married before me and my baby sister will most likely get engaged within the year. I am the eldest of three sisters and I grew up in a traditional family. When siblings are married out of order, the family dynamics change. It can be challenging to feel "secure" and "normal," so to speak, because it's not customary and it's certainly not how you pictured it when you were little.
The most important thing to realize is that it's not a competition. At the end of the day we all have our own individual paths and things happen for a reason, whether or not it makes sense at that exact moment.
I have a beautiful niece now that I love to death. It's a wonderful feeling when you can embrace your destiny and be genuinely happy for the people in your life. I couldn't wish my sisters more success, love and happiness in their lives. Someday, one day, it will be my turn!
