Nou, have you ever sought the assistance of a psychologist? There's some prejudice regarding therapy, so I hasten to add that I'm not taking the piss or anything, but that's exactly the sort of thing they're able to help you with if it bothers you so much.
My own mother is a therapist actually, and she had the whole family go to therapy for the hell of it (with other people, of course), and it's a quite enriching experience... even though I dropped out because I'd always argue about metaphysics with the hippie therapists my mum assigned to me in my teens, it changed the way I deal with myself (and I'd say that's for the better)
I have done therapy, though not related to this. I already know what the deal is. I don't have anything better to compare her to.
The trick is making sure I don't, in the future, make her some sort of impossible comparison. But thats not hard. Like I said, she was like a sister, I knew all her bad shit too, and I can focus on that for 2 seconds and see she is just like any other girl.
