I hope one day you wake up and realize that you're dead wrong or your sister ignores your ways of handling things and tells someone. One day you might regret not telling sooner.
^This post is aggressive, not advisory. If you were advising then you would have used more persuasive and supportive language. Telling her she makes no effort, for example, does not encourage her to do so. Neither does your statement "you refuse to do anything about it because you think shes in a better situation getting abused"

If you aim to advise then use more supportive and kinder statements and phrases.
