Now that you are grown and far apart it is difficult to stay in touch with your sister. She was integral part of your growing up and she made a lot of impact on how you saw and responded to the world. She was a friend, a sister and a constant fixture. And here are some things that happened during the process.
1. You can share her achievements on social media
In your sister you have something to brag and showcase to your friends near and afar. You are not shy about what progress she has made. Rather it brings a sense of pride in you.
2. You can relate with her dark periods
We all have dark and bad days. At this period only very few can understand our sour moments. But your sister is one who can relate with your dark periods and this goes vice versa.
3. You can have a similar opinion about other members of your family
You can gossip and share nasty stories about other persons in your family, whether immediate or extended. No matter what happens you seem to be the only perfect duo in the family.
4. You can deal with each others stupid actions
Whether it is getting drunk and drunk texting each other or having a silent crush over some guy you can understand and deal with each others moments of total abnormality.
5. You have a role model
You don’t have to go out there in search of role models. You already have one nearby who you want to pattern your life in accordance with. If she is doing a special hairstyle or have a particular taste in a fashion statement, you are also down with it.
6. You can call someone to have your back when things get wrong
There is someone to pick you up from that party that didn’t turn out right. Or that get you out of sobriety from that relationship that didn’t end well. You always have someone to be there for you and protect you from affairs that went badly.
7. You have someone to vent your anger on
Granted you will never be happy and friendly all the time. When you are not just in the state of smiling and being courteous, your sister could be the first person you channel your disappointment upon. While she understands she provides a shield for you to spit out your emotions, no matter how hurtful those words may sound.
8. You can laugh at her jokes
You see her jokes and whatever stupid act she does as something laughable. Out of the context it may not make sense, but you can always understand what she is trying to poke at.
9. You don’t judge her
You see her as who she is. Nobody can see and understand her better than you do because you have been there for each other from the onset. You don’t see her for her flaws but for an amazing sister she is.
10. You make great photos together
You have the best photos together because you can be yourself and act so stupid around her which makes your photos an excitement to see.
11. You fight over a lot of seemingly little matters
It could be a fight over who takes out the thrash or why you knocked at her door at the wrong time. You fight over issues that could be ignored and not make a lot of difference.
12. You have someone who always who kept all your secrets
You have someone who knew almost about every secret act you did and didn’t say it to anyone. It was like it was two of you against everyone else out there and secrets were part of your weaponry.
13. You had someone who could brighten your mood no matter what
When it all seemed to be dampening and frustrating you had someone who knew how to brighten your mood and cheer you up. You could be relieved when she is around you.
