I also agree with Nanny Goat that the cause may be unresolved family issues. I think some siblings are brought up to be narcissistic and others to be the ones that have to do the pleasing. I also can see that unfortunately with some siblings the differences/distance are just too big. But I guess some favoritism has taken place in childhood and maybe siblings played off against each other. Or they still see you as the person your parents made you out to be and have never bothered to change their lenses. Hope this makes you feel less alone in this.
I realize the original is an old post, but WOW, this is a spot-on description of my family.

Thank you for this.
