'My younger sister has a life while I don't'

Aug 26, 2013, 11:38 IST | Dear Diana

Dear Diana, I'm 22 and pursuing a Masters in Finance. I'm more of a studious person.

My younger sister is in college and is dull in studies but she has a life — something I don’t. She brings boyfriends home when our parents are out and I feel bad that I’m not even in a relationship yet. I wish I was like her but I know I can’t.

Dear Diana, Sex and Relationships

Dear Amiya,
Each person is different. As you say you can’t be like your sister and she can’t be like you. You appear to be shy and unassuming while she is carefree and loud. Remember every person has different personality traits. So why do you feel that she has a rocking life and you do not? To each his own. Stop envying her and feeling sorry for yourself. I am sure there are areas where you excel (like in academics) where she lags behind. So stop comparing yourself to her because you can never be like her or vice versa. 

Diana will solve it!
