Our expert says:
Yes, that would be hurtful. It sounds as though she herself had some problems and was preoccupied with her own troubles, and not ready to hear yours. You say you like to discuss your problems with her - does she also talk her problems over with you ?
Also, whether a sister or a counsellor, i someone keeps coming back with the same problem, sugegsting that they haven't actually tried whatever you suggested, it gets discouraging and you may not want to listen the repeats of that problem.
Check whether you sister needs to get support rather than giving it, and consider seeing a professional counsellor for some sessions not only for a quick fix, but to learn how to solve your own problems
