Dear Straight Talk: I’m ashamed to say I was like “No Slut’s” sister in last week’s column. In addition to having a terrible reputation, which gave my younger sister one, too, I did everything to make her life miserable. The few friends she did make, I drove away. I laughed at her when she was naked, calling her body “gross,” and found it funny when she cried. I’m mature now and have changed. I feel terrible and wish like anything to beg for forgiveness and make it up to her. But I don’t know how to approach her or if the damage can be undone. — S.T.
Kira, 20, Moraga: If I was your sister, I’d have a really hard time forgiving you! What you did was mean, horrible and sad, and it will definitely take multiple apologies and admissions of guilt. I would fight like hell to earn her trust back, but if she doesn’t forgive you, you must accept that.
