I am currently experiencing some extreme trouble with my Sister. She has had some serious drug problems in the past and also some intense periods of turmoil associated with losing a child. That probably only scratches the surface in attempting to describe her own personal problems. She is very manipulative and has a unique ability to pull people into her madness. Today I stood up to her on behalf of myself and another. It blew up in my face and an argument ensued.

Please make aspiration that I can keep my composure and focus on compassion rather than selfishness and anger.

Thank you,
SamBodhi

May your family issues be totally calmed. May your sister be well, happy, peaceful and loving. May you also be well, happy, peaceful and loving.

First of all, as far as possible don't eager to change her,
Sometimes backfire,
Slowly guide her,
Buy captive fish or birds and set them free,
Praying for her,
There are many blessings,
