Here’s one for all the little brothers and sisters who got BULLIED as kids. You might actually get the last laugh in the end.
A new study found people who were bullied by an older sibling are more likely to have mental health problems as an adult, like anxiety and low self-esteem. BUT, the older sibling who did the bullying is even MORE likely to face those same issues.
It’s not clear if it’s a cause-and-effect thing, or if kids who bully their siblings are just more prone to mental health problems in general. But if you’re still angry at them for making your life a living hell, just know they might be even more miserable long term.
