In movies and TV shows, we often see that some people expect way too much from others, especially their family members. For instance, in ‘Crazy Rich Asians,’ it was shown that there are so many expectations and pressure in Asian families (in particular) regarding how smart one should be, how they should carry themselves, the way they marry, and who they marry and the list goes on…

Well, the reality is not so different. It is quite the same. If you’re an Asian or know someone who is, you must be familiar with the fact that their lives are not easy because of these unnecessary standards and expectations they set for themselves.

A woman from Vietnam (she did not reveal her name) shared that she has been disowned by her family just because she refused to fund her sister’s lavish lifestyle. TikToker (@rewrite_mytrauma) revealed that she was expected to support her younger sister; from paying her college bills to giving her money for partying and clubbing, it was all supposed to be her responsibility.

The Vietnamese woman is a biotech venture capitalist who got her Ph.D. degree in neuroscience from UCLA. In her video, she explained that her parents sent her younger sister to a school in America, knowing that they could not afford it.

She claimed that she had been supporting her sister financially in every way possible for quite a long time, but now that her expenses have gotten out of control, she cannot do it anymore.

She said she talked to her parents about the situation and told them that she could no longer afford her sister’s luxurious lifestyle. And to her surprise, instead of supporting her and being thankful to her, they called her stingy and ungrateful.

“I told my family I can no longer afford it, and if they wanted my sister to remain in the U.S., they had to figure it out themselves,” she continued. “I was called stingy. I was called ungrateful and that whatever I am today, it is only because of my family, and now I should pay them back. They tried to impose this responsibility on me when all I asked was to make my sister understand that she should be more careful with her spending.”

‘I have been disowned by my parents just now because I refused to finance my sister’s lavish lifestyle when she’s here in America as an international student,’ she cried in the video

“They sent her here three years ago when they knew that they could not afford any of her expenses. So the responsibility for her tuition, room, board, and even her living expenses has been on me as I am the eldest child in the family. She has been completely ungrateful and completely irresponsible with the money. I had to pay for the debt she owed to her friends because she spent it on shopping, Uber Eats, bars and clubs, and I’m just so done with it.”

Since her TikTok video went viral, thousands of people have watched it and sent her love. People are showing her a great deal of respect and sending her support.
