    Hi

    I am a 27 year old female, who is the oldest in the family. How do I deal with my 22 year old brother getting engaged while I am still single?

    Appreciated the piece about not adapting emotions that are expected of us, if we don’t actually feel that way… Thank you!

    Hi, I love these insights! about adapting the emotions, when I was in a similar situation, I  got advice that I should not let someone else “tell my story.” Meaning if  let’s say in “my story” I am overwhelmed, but happy. I shouldn’t let people come over to me and say “aw this must be impossible for you” and then take on those feeling, and say hey I guess this is impossible for me. or for me to feel “nebach” (pitiful) cuz someone else tells me I should feel that way.

    Know what you feel and what you don’t feel, cuz then as you said, Fay, you can work on what you actually feel!
