Earlier this week, Salon published a moving piece by Tobin Levy called "My sister's perfect life." From the title alone, you can probably see where this essay and my follow-up open call are headed. Whether you're an overachieving big brother or a black sheep younger sister, chances are that your relationship with your sibling is loaded in one way or another, regardless of how well you may get along. Many of us spend our entire lives learning, and in some instances unlearning, how to navigate these perilous waters.
Open Salon wants to know: Do you have a sibling rivalry? And if so, how does it manifest itself? Has your relationship improved or deteriorated over time?
