It was as far as being noticed and accepted. She made up some of the other stuff later after the trial against Alan. She had other family issues but none of those had anything to do with being accepted or being a black sheep.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep She was accepted as long as she behaved a certain way. Now that he's gotten to actually know her over all of these years and has seen the sacrifices (often made at EJ's insistence in the past) she's made for her family,
Well, your first sentence is why we are disagreeing then. I see being the black sheep of the family going hand in hand with feeling acceptance or like you don't measure up.
Often, I think kids become the black sheep because they don't feel like they fit in with the family in the way they should and aren't accepted as they are or measure up as they are. They act out and take on the black sheep role cuz they don't know how else to define their role in the family. Negative reinforcement to their own insecure way of defining their family role and individual qualities.
Look at me, give me a pair of gloves and a couch and I'm Marlena!
I get what you are saying though in the rest of your post.
I just don't think that applies to Sami. Being the black sheep of the family wasn't the issue. It was Austin loving Carrie and not her that was the issue. She would use her black sheep claims to deflect from the things she had done but even she knows she was full of it. When she's more stable she usually admits that to herself.
Well, I couldn't disagree more here. Austin loving Carrie wasn't Sami's only issue. Not by a longshot.
