    She'd mock me until my temper snapped, my mind went cold as ice, and my body surged with adrenaline and rage.
    Now imagine that it's your younger sister. That she's one of the Mean Girls group, or tries to be. That she picks up where her sadistic, popular friends leave off and carries it into your home. Imagine that she continues their efforts to pound your self-image into the ground because she's jealous and resentful that all her life she was told about how brilliant you were--as if you had any control over what adults said about you.

    And imagine the song and dance you get from your parents when you complain about her narcissistic bullying is a dismissive, "It takes two to make a fight."
