I’ve never liked my sister, is this normal?

My sister and I are ten years apart. I just graduated college and she is graduating eighth grade. I’ve never liked her, and Junior High was the worst experience of my life. She has a personality that reminds me of all the girls that ever made fun of me growing up. We have nothing in common. She likes dark gothic supernatural books, and I like books that are about real people. She’s more outgoing and I’m more of an introvert. She likes My Chemical Romance, I like The Shins. We don’t even share the same dad. The only thing in common between us is our mom who can’t see what we don’t see in each other. It’s like we are so far apart in age that I get out of a phase and she gets into one and we never meet halfway. I want to get along with her, but we never really grew up together because of our age difference. I was a teen when she was younger and more of a babysitter than a sister, and now that she’s older I’m no longer at home. I really can’t stand her and I feel bad about that. Is this normal?

I never loved my brother when we were growing up together. He is three years younger than me. Now we both are adults and we love each other.
There will always be a problem like that siblings don’t love each other. But once in a while you will love them eventually, I am sure.

    Its ok not to like your sister..I don’t like my sister for the same reasons & we don’t have the same Dad to. You just have to love her & be there for her when she needs you…but otherwise it is normal not to like your sisters behavior.
