Hello, friends.
I am a 16 yr old with a extended family of 15 people. My 3 older sisters are married, yet they find the need to come to my parent's house every single day with their spouses and children. The problem is, they show up and just sit in the living room the entire day. It makes me very angry, as I have 90% of the household's responsibilities on me. I have college and it is really hard for me to keep up with studies while they command me to set the table, wash the dishes, sweep and mop etc. I feel like a servant every time they yell my name and command me to do some new chore for them. I hate how they always make a mess & leave it for me to clean up, I've cried plenty of times over it. It's a cycle everyday. Even when I do get time off for myself, my mum will call me every 20 minutes or tell me to sit in the living room for some "family time". If my parents were a bit appreciative maybe I wouldn't be ranting however, they have a very sharp and rude attitude regardless of all the work I do in the house. I really want an escape from such a suffocating life. is this normal or is it just me?

Hey, sorry to hear that, what you're going through is definitely not normal. Have you tried explaining the situation to your parents or your sisters? Maybe they don't realise what they're putting you through since they are probably preoccupied with all of the kids, spouses and parents. Try talking to them and I'm sure they'll realise how hard it is for you. They should hopefully help you out after that.

Chores and family time are to be expected. Setting the table, doing the dishes, and sweeping once a day should take you half an hour all together, its not asking for much. If you are overwhelmed or annoyed with their attitude however, you should speak to your mum privately about it.
We can see that you replied to yourself, by the way... :facepalm2:
