I'm going through the same thing and have all my adult life but now I refuse to take her behavior going forward. She's use to having all the power because I never wanted her to take her children away from me...they're grown and I'm trying to still juggle spending time with them with her around. She's completely bitchy to me but I refuse to lower myself to her level. She says I'm the problem so it's impossible to have a mature adult conversation with her. (she does this to the other siblings so it's not really personal...but the harder I push back the more aggressive she gets). I'm prepared to move on without her.

Take your life back. Stop allowing her to railroad you. Whether or not she's an older sister doesn't give her license to behave badly. DEMAND RESPECT!!

Wow just wow!

Your mom and your sister don't have your back. They may be your family, but they are not your friends.

You should have just gone to the shower without them.You were being disrespectful to the host of your shower by trying to please (avoid conflict with) your mom and sister.

Stop being the family douche.

You won't ever get from them what you have given. They are threatened by your happiness.
