I have a sister who constantly finds any reason to have a pop at me and my husband. Complaining about something that you've done but then never gives anything back in return or hardly ever nice .
I've had enough. Would it be reasonable to just say to myself enough enough and quit seeing her/ speaking anymore . She has kids my nieces , and it would probably spoil that but I can't take anymore of her bitterness towards us . If anything good happens to us she digs.

She's jealous or not very nice. She isn't happy do you know why?

Would you have kept a 'friend' who behaved like this in your life?
To be mean to you and bring you down?
No you would not!
Same goes in this situation.
Just stop contacting her. Stop replying. She'll soon get the message.
Sorry you have such an awful sister. I can't imagine what that must be like.
Life's too short to put up with this kind of crap.

<Second time I've written this today> I am NC with my sister, have been for 5 years. (and my Father, btw - 23 years) She has 3 dc, who I do see occasionally (they live about 150 miles away) and I send them money etc for birthdays. She doesn't bother with my dc.

Good luck.
