Dumped sister needs help

Dear Maura,

My sister (22) was dumped by her boyfriend and she’s now always hanging out with me and my friends.

We’re 19 and in college.

She doesn’t fit in.

She had this boyfriend for ages and dropped her own friends.

I feel sorry for her but and our mam has asked me to let her go out with us at the weekend at least.

I just want her to get her own life.

Maura says:  

You’re absolutely right, she needs to try to get on with her own life and with friends her own age.

She can’t be happy sticking with her younger sister, no offence, and your mates but she seems to think she has no choice.

Have a chat with her and help her to get in touch with her own pals again.
