Urrgh... I'm just getting furious when I hear things like oh, girls don't dare to do this / woman have more troubles picking up that. Always makes me think oh yes? I'll show you! Made me do some rather stupid things. Hmmm... guess that's the problem with being stubborn and defiant. Anyway...
Neni I don't think you should let the boy girl stuff worry you, its brothers and sisters, its what we do, we have known each other forever and know which buttons to push, and we do because as snowolf says, we are all insecure, a family is a like a dog pack, boys like to be the alpha.
I had a good education, went to a good uni and got a good degree, I hated the good job, London sucked and all I did was work, so quit, went travelling and then became a PE teacher. Have since moved to NZ and I work short days with long holidays, so I surf, snowboard and spend time with my girl and the puppy.
My sister works for Unilever in NYC, earns more money than I can imagine, has just ten days holiday a year, gets a few days a year on the slopes and works 90 hour weeks. She is an amazing sportswomen, excellent skier who picked boarding up in less than a day and runs all the marathons (luckily was in UK for the Boston tragedy)
My point being she is the girl and super successful business woman and super sporty, we both have different lives and different priorities, she loves to wind me up about my lifestyle and me hers?
Who is better off, who cares, long as you are happy
