10 Things Only People With Younger Siblings Would Understand

10 Things Only People With Younger Siblings Would Understand

Got a younger brother or sister? I have got both. So, I am well qualified to list down those 10 things only people having younger siblings would understand.  As per Astrid Alauda, “There’s no other love like the love for a brother. There’s no other love like the love from a brother.” As per Toni Morrison, “A sister can be seen as someone who is both ourselves and very much not ourselves- a special kind of double.”

1. They are your confidantes

You can share absolutely anything with them and they will keep it to themselves. They are your partners-in-crime given to you by God. You will hate people who they hate, by default, even if you don’t know them.

    2. They can be very moody and a bit melodramatic at times…

    …but they are your annoying little angels, who give you awesome advice about every thing going on in your life and you cannot help but listen to them. Well, at least my sister behaves as if she is older and more mature than me.

      3. You can fight a lot and you might believe that they hold a lot of resentment towards you

      But they really don’t. At the end of the day, you will come back to your senses because after all you are supposed to be the more responsible one and look after them (all the blame will ultimately be put on you, so you have learned to adjust).

        4. They are your ATM

        They will arrange money for you in any way they have to because they love you that much. And they usually don’t take no for an answer.

          5. However much you may deny, the time which you spend with them is truly memorable

          They can be the ray of sunshine when you are in dark clouds. You feel that you won’t get a better roommate than them, ever. And sometimes they will mess up the entire house and then, you feel that you won’t get a worse roommate than them.

            6. You love them unconditionally

            My brother was the baby of the house. The youngest, with two elder sisters, he was the most pampered. You might feel neglected at times, but then, when he gives you his toothless smile, you will go and hug him.

            7. They look up to you a lot, even if you do not realize it

            You feel that you have to set a good example for them and make sure that they do not repeat the same mistakes you did. But, they will ignore you at times. You will feel frustrated but since you have got no other option, you will keep on trying to bring them to the correct path (note: correct according to you)

              8. You will feel protective of them throughout your life

              So, whenever someone says something hurtful to them, you tend to pick up fights with the offenders. Only, you are allowed to say things to them. No one else.

                9.You (eventually) feel bad about lying to them

                At some point in your life, you must have told them that they were adopted or picked up from some garbage bin in front of your house. But when they started crying and complained to Mom, you will be the one in trouble.

                  10.  You learn to share things with them from a very early age

                  You might have common interests which makes things more interesting. My sister is a year younger than me and we pretty much have the same hobbies. The best thing about having younger siblings is the companionship. It’s like having really close friends who know everything about you. (almost everything).

                    7 Powerful Questions To Find Out What You Want To Do With Your Life

                    7 Powerful Questions To Find Out What You Want To Do With Your Life

                    What do I want to do with my life? It’s a question all of us think about at one point or another.

                    For some, the answer comes easily. For others, it takes a lifetime to figure out.

                    It’s easy to just go through the motions and continue to do what’s comfortable and familiar. But for those of you who seek fulfillment, who want to do more, these questions will help you paint a clearer picture of what you want to do with your life.

                    1. What are the things I’m most passionate about?

                    The first step to living a more fulfilling life is to think about the things that you’re passionate about.

                    What do you love? What fulfills you? What “work” do you do that doesn’t feel like work? Maybe you enjoy writing, maybe you love working with animals or maybe you have a knack for photography.

                    The point is, figure out what you love doing, then do more of it.

                    2. What are my greatest accomplishments in life so far?

                    Think about your past experiences and the things in your life you’re most proud of.

                    How did those accomplishments make you feel? Pretty darn good, right? So why not try and emulate those experiences and feelings?

                    If you ran a marathon once and loved the feeling you had afterwards, start training for another one. If your child grew up to be a star athlete or musician because of your teachings, then be a coach or mentor for other kids.

                    Continue to do the things that have been most fulfilling for you.

                    3. If my life had absolutely no limits, what would I choose to have and what would I choose to do?

                    Here’s a cool exercise: Think about what you would do if you had no limits.

                    If you had all the money and time in the world, where would you go? What would you do? Who would you spend time with?

                    These answers can help you figure out what you want to do with your life. It doesn’t mean you need millions of dollars to be happy though.

                    What it does mean is answering these questions will help you set goals to reach certain milestones and create a path toward happiness and fulfillment. Which leads to our next question …

                    4. What are my goals in life?

                    Goals are a necessary component to set you up for a happy future. So answer these questions:

                    Once you figure out the answers to each of these, you’ll have a much better idea of what you should do with your life.

                    5. Whom do I admire most in the world?

                    Following the path of successful people can set you up for success.

                    Think about the people you respect and admire most. What are their best qualities? Why do you respect them? What can you learn from them?

                    You’re the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.[1] So don’t waste your time with people who hold you back from achieving your dreams.

                    Spend more time with happy, successful, optimistic people and you’ll become one of them.

                    6. What do I not like to do?

                    An important part of figuring out what you want to do with your life is honestly assessing what you don’t want to do.

                    What are the things you despise? What bugs you the most about your current job?

                    Maybe you hate meetings even though you sit through 6 hours of them every day. If that’s the case, find a job where you can work more independently.

                    The point is, if you want something to change in your life, you need to take action. Which leads to our final question …

                    7. How hard am I willing to work to get what I want?

                    Great accomplishments never come easy. If you want to do great things with your life, you’re going to have to make a great effort. That will probably mean putting in more hours the average person, getting outside your comfort zone and learning as much as you can to achieve as much as you can.

                    But here’s the cool part: it’s often the journey that is the most fulfilling part. It’s during these seemingly small, insignificant moments that you’ll often find that “aha” moments that helps you answer the question,

                    “What do I want to do with my life?”

                    So take the first step toward improving your life. You won’t regret it.
