This hatred that Esther is feeling is finally coming out, and that is helping her move forward in life. She does not have a ton of anger built up anymore because she has found a way to release it.

My sister Paula at one time was every thing I wanted to be. Paula was petite, pretty, intelligent, and had a caring heart. Paula is four years older than me and was considered the popular one in school. She tried really hard to be accepted by her peers and got really good grades without what seemed like any effort.
