Twoborn™ solves the problem of dressing twins by creating clothing that celebrates their connection while expressing each child's individuality. Each outfit is harmonious but unique. Related but original. Alike but different.
So my sister, who is also my identical twin, has very severe self-esteem issues. Yesterday she took an old picture of me, her and my cousin out of its frame and cut herself out of it. Today she went into my parent's room, where there are yearly photos of me and her at our favourite restaurant, and cut herself out of every single one, all the way back to 2013. Obviously our mom was horrified and could not stop crying, partly because of the lost memories but mostly because she thought this was an indication that my sister wants to kill herself. Even when I was looking at the photos I noticed the errieness of it, because it was only me sitting and smiling by myself. My mom likely thought my sister was removing herself from the family 'artifacts' in advance. I don't really think this is the case, as my sister simply just thought she looked ugly in these photos, but my mom was very worried.
Since we are identical twins and I don't feel this way about how I look, what do you think is going on? I'm so confused. Everyone says we look the EXACT same, so shouldn't I feel ugly too!?
In your opinion, does this seem like normal behaviour for a teenage girl? Do you know of similar situations, either with yourself or someone else? Also, what do you think will help her?
This past weekend I found out I had a twin brother who was miscarried when my mom was 6 months pregnant. I'm nearly 25 years old and I've always felt like my life was off, like some part of me wasn't right or wasn't there. Now it's making sense but it's coming at me as a huge blow. I don't really know how to handle this so I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this and if they do, how they coped.
