Although we live miles apart i have a close relationship with one of my four siblings. I get along perfectly well with the other 3 but have always had a particularly close relationship with this one.
However, I have noticed over the past few months that she is showing off a lot, especially on social media and also when she rings me.
Her husband has done very well in his career and they have a much better standard of living than the rest of us. I have never felt jealous of her for this, quite the opposite, i have been glad that she has an 'easy' adulthood i.e. choosing to work when and if it suits her. being able to afford private healthcare etc...
Her husband has always dealt with any problems himself and she's never had the worries the rest of us have had over the years about affording bills etc.
However, she has recently moved into a very very desirable house in a very very desirable area and oh boy do we have to hear about it. Along with pictures on Faceache etc... There has also been harping about the round the world cruise and the trip across Canada.
Its really starting to annoy me. The final straw was when we were chatting on the weekend and she managed to weedle in to the conversation about how much pay off her hubby is getting when he retires next year (a 7 figure sum) I have never ever asked her about their finances.
Some of you may think 'prehaps she lonely' but she isn't, she has a great social life and lots of friends.
I really don't understand why she's doing this? We weren't brought up to discuss money, believing it to be vulgar. But even though i know things are more open nowadays i don't understand why she is doing this.
Anyone any ideas? or is it me?
