Synopsis: MY SEVEN SISTERS FROM OTHER MOTHERS By Naomi Bryson My sisters are hoarders, backstabbers, whiners, haters, golfers, skiers, and emotionally needy. I have learned to live with them and to love them. The hoarders have clutter on top of clutter and keep empty food cartons and "junk mail" because they may be useful one day. Clothes are scattered everywhere and all closets are stuffed. The backstabbers want to be in my place in life and are really haters that cannot be happy with another person's success or happiness. Rather than be happy for others, the hater sets out to point up flaws and mistakes in that person to bring them down a notch. The backstabbers are also liars and make up stories about others or embellish a story that has some truth in it. I do not always know when the backstabbing sisters are in action; therefore, I must follow my gut feeling to deal with this hateful act. My emotionally needy sister has an insurmountable need for attention. She wears bizarre outfits, purchases more than her budget allows, and will start a conversation with total strangers to get attention. She depends on me and others for her social activities. My other needy sister is also a whiner and is difficult to understand and more difficult to take on my good days and intolerable on my bad days. This sister complains about most things in a very high-pitched and annoying tone. She whines about her job, her bills, what she eats, lack of a spa in the hotel, the bed is too hard, the man in her life (or lack of), the water smells, parking is too far, and you name it. How can I have fun with these hoarders, whiners, backstabbers, haters, liars, and emotionally needy women? There are recommendations, tips and strategies that I use successfully to cope with these sisters. I use a technique that I call, "observe and grow" for self improvement and personal growth. I observe how people behave in different circumstances and change my habits if necessary. My responsibility to myself is to stay healthy and well by practicing good habits The book offers hope that women everywhere will learn to live as sisters, to respect each other's differences, to help heal each other's wounds, to promote each other's programs, to learn from each other's strengths and weaknesses, and to benefit from each other's knowledge and experience. These women are not sisters by ancestry. These are the sisters that I have fun with on the ski slopes and golf courses. We have shared recipes, menus, personal care tips, and news and current events. They are my sisters on the ski slopes and on the links and are sisters of my heart. Sisters of the heart do not need words to communicate with each other. They have developed a language of grins, winces, smiles, and frowns that express surprise or disbelief. We know each others faults, virtues, triumphs, and desires and have been bonded together by codes of our hearts. I know that God did not give me the sisters that I want. He gave me the sisters that I need. These sisters help me, hurt me, love me and sometime leave me. They help to make me into the person that I was meant to be. Therefore, I have decided to love the people who treat me the way I want to be treated and love the ones who don't "just because." I believe everything happens for a reason, and when I get a second chance to right a wrong, I grasp the opportunity. If it changes my life, I let it and forgive quickly, for I am the person that I was meant to be.
