27 Scenarios Only Sisters Can Highly Relate To

27 Scenarios Only Sisters Can Highly Relate To

Sisters – a very special love/hate relationship, especially when they are close in age. They “share” clothes, bathrooms, sometimes boyfriends; they “eat” each other out, and they fight. But, in the end, that bond overcomes it all, and the love/hate turns into only love. If you grew up with sisters, you can relate to all that follows here.

1. When you trust your sister too much:

    You have a really hot date, and you’ve decided you don’t like your bangs. In a moment of weakness and false trust, you get the scissors and let your sister trim them. This is what you get. This will not get posted on any blog about funny haircuts, no matter how many pictures she takes.

    2. When you get caught in your sister’s stuff:

      Your sister is sleeping over at a friend’s – perfect time to explore her bedroom. You find her lockbox and the key taped to the back of her headboard. Perfect. You stick the key in the lock and it breaks off in there.

      3. When you’re so embarrassed, you want to hide:

        You go out to eat. Your sister spends 20 minutes taking pictures of her food. Finally, she settles in to eat, realizes her food is cold and complains to the waiter.

        4. When you can’t get away with simple “Theft”:

          You have “borrowed” your sister’s new top to wear on your date. You stay into your room until that date arrives. Just as you are coming down the stairs, you bump into your sister coming around the corner from the kitchen. Busted.

          4. When your sister tries the same thing:

            Two weeks later, your sister is getting ready for a great date, but something’s up. She is staying hidden. You know what she’s up to, so you lay in wait. She runs down the stairs and out the door. You are on her heels!

            5. When you are beginning to think your sister may be a bit hypocritical:

              Your sister is majoring in women’s studies in college. She has turned into the “equality in all areas” for women demagogue. Then she comes home on winter break and doesn’t help your brother shovel the snow off the driveway.

              6. When your sister’s eyes are bigger than her stomach:

                You order pizza. You hate just cheese but that is the only kind she will eat, so you order half and half. You dig in as soon as it arrives. She takes one piece of her cheese-only half, eats it, and then tells you that’s really all she wants.

                7. When you share a bathroom:

                  Twitter:@DaveyBullard

                  Sharing a bathroom is dicey. She has been in there for the past hour putting makeup on, and you just need to get the soccer practice sweat off. Finally, she emerges, looking stunning. She tells you not to worry about the mess – she’ll clean it up when she gets home.

                  8. When our treasure becomes her treasure:

                    You have a secret stash of candy. It’s about 2:00 a.m. you are up late studying, and you need an energy boost from some of those Snickers bars. OMG – they are all gone. You shake your sister awake. Her reason? When you were 5 years old you stole some of her Easter candy.

                    9. When she hangs out with your ex:

                      via Dailymail.co.uk

                      It took you 3 months to get over being dumped. Still, when you see your sister hanging out at the mall food court with him, what gives? When she gets home, somehow all of her homework is missing.

                      10. When Christmas revenge is sweet:

                        via Imgur.com

                        Christmas is coming. Last year your sister recommended a hideous outfit for your mom to buy you. Guess what mom is getting her this year?

                        11. When your sister moves back home after college:

                          You have had 4 years as queen of the bathroom and have even been using her old room for storage. Suddenly, this “stranger” has returned to disrupt your peace. This scenario is so typical and has such humorous sideshows that even NBC has developed a new series about it.

                           12. When you need to downplay your bad behavior:

                            via twitter@bellagordon

                            Your sister took the skirt you had laid out last night. You end up in a tussle. She starts wailing over a few scratches. “I barely touched her!” you tell you mom. “She did that to herself just to get me in trouble!”

                            13. When your sister deliberately gives you bad advice:

                              via 9gag

                              You parents are sleeping in after hosting a big party. You need some money for a new outfit so you decide to play “angel” and clean up the kitchen. Your sister tells you to consolidate all of half-empty liquor bottles into just a few. Your parents arrive just as you have finished this task.

                              14. When you reciprocate by giving bad advice:

                                via 9gag

                                Your sister considers herself a great artist and is always drawing great pictures which your parents admire. They are gone for the day. You tell your sister they plan to paint the hall and said you could have fun drawing on it today. She gets to work! Big surprise for mom and dad when they return!

                                15. When your sister reveals your secrets:

                                803f1a0db2a57b833a0049b53a886ec95b046e5c8eafe715c36f0c32183d9f65

                                  via quickmeme.com

                                  You got an “F” on a test and are definitely trying to hide it from your parents. Ever so sweetly she tells you how sorry she is that you got that “F,” right at the dinner table.

                                  16. When the test thing still angers you:

                                    You need revenge. You look around her room while she’s in the shower and spy her purse. You go into her wallet, take out all the money, and put it under her mattress. She leaves with her friends to go shopping. “Have fun!” You wave goodbye.

                                    17. When you are tired of her procrastination:

                                      Your sister is a procrastinator. You, on the other hand, are “Miss Perfect,” always scheduling your day just right. You are about to step into the shower, and she insists that she is runing late and must go first. You tell her you’ll be super quick – just a few minutes. Oops – no time to clean!

                                      18. When your comfort is ruined:

                                        You have settled in to watch a Netflix movie, with snacks, pillow and “blankie.” You pause to go to the bathroom, only to find her in your spot watching a re-run of “Two Broke Girls.” Only one option here.

                                        19. When your sister can’t help looking great in “grunge”:

                                          You have a first date with a new guy, and you have spent all day getting ready, and you look great. Your sister doesn’t have a date tonight, so she is in a pair of sweats with her hair up in a ponytail and no makeup on. Your date arrives. As you are leaving, he says, “Your sister is pretty hot.”

                                          20. When you need to deny, deny, deny:

                                            via 9gag

                                            You “borrowed” your sister’s blouse. Why? You are out with friends for a night on the town, and your phone keeps going off. It’s your sister, and you know what she is calling about – 8 text messages and two calls – wow. Finally, you answer just to get it all to stop. You’ll help her look when you get home.

                                            21. When you are sure you are mom’s favorite:

                                              You and your sister are having a major argument about chores. Your sister knows it’s her turn but she is denying it. Your mom sides with you.

                                              22. When you can place the blame on her:

                                                Your parents have a new dining room set. You sit down at it with a piece of paper and draw something with a ballpoint pen. You finish, only to see a large scratch. Panic. You say nothing. Your mother notices it, says, “What happened?” You don’t know. “Where’s your sister?” Next door. “You go get her!” Nice – she can take the blame.

                                                23. When your sister laughs at your troubles:

                                                  You are in trouble with mom and dad. You stayed out past curfew and now you’re grounded. Your sister is taking particular delight and laughing about it. What she looks like to you while she’s doing that.

                                                  24. When you have to fake make up:

                                                    You and your sister have been arguing and fighting all day. Your parents are totally fed up with it. Finally, they send you to your shared bedroom and tell you, you cannot come out until you have hugged and made up. Here is how that feels.

                                                    25. When being put in charge turns you into a fascist:

                                                      You are the older sister and when you parents go out, they put you in charge. It’s time to get your revenge for all of the things this little sis has done to you since forever. Here’s what you look like to her.

                                                      26. When you receive serious threats:

                                                        via 9gag

                                                        “I’m gonna tell everything to mom” she screams after spotting you sipping from the wine bottle or making out with your secret boyfriend on the couch. You know that her true goal is to get something from you – a bunch of sweets, your new skirt or any other perk she can negotiate.

                                                        27. When all is said and done, what would you really do without your sister?

                                                          It’s true. You have been through everything together, and you will have each other’s backs forever.

                                                          How to Live a Stress Free Life in a Way Most People Don’t

                                                          How to Live a Stress Free Life in a Way Most People Don’t

                                                          Learning how to live a stress free life may seem impossible, but the truth is that there are specific things you can do to begin eliminating sources of stress.

                                                          No, it doesn’t look like a made-for-television movie. No, it doesn’t look like something only people with extra time and money can do. It looks like your life—but without any self-created stress triggers.

                                                          Here are 11 ways to help you live a stress-free life:

                                                          1. Stop Overanalyzing Situations That Haven’t Happened

                                                          The first step to living a stress-free life is to stop overanalyzing imaginary scenarios. It’s easy to spend time in the world of worst-case scenarios. People tend to cultivate this world for one of two reasons.

                                                          First, because if you know what the worst-case scenario is, then it won’t surprise you when it happens. Second, if you know what the worst-case scenario is, then you can do everything in your power to control the universe so the worst case never happens.

                                                          If that’s really the world you want to cultivate, then become a professional risk assessor. If not, then ask yourself how you are benefiting from continuing to live that way.

                                                          Does it make you feel better about yourself and your life? Does it make you want to leap out of bed in the morning, eager to embrace the worst-case scenario? Does it bring you joy or fulfillment?

                                                          If your answer to these three questions is no, then stop living in the future and bring yourself back into the present.

                                                          2. Don’t Take on Other People’s Problems

                                                          The whole advantage of other people having problems is that they aren’t your problems. When you frequently take on other people’s problems, you get into the habit of enabling.

                                                          Let’s get crystal clear about the definition of enabling: enabling is the art of continuing to take responsibility for other people, thereby disallowing their personal responsibility[1].

                                                          It is of no service to other people to take on their problems because they can’t/won’t/don’t know how to fix the problem.

                                                          It is of service to empower others to take responsibility for themselves and their lives, to encourage, teach, and motivate others to address their own problems. So stop enabling, and start empowering.

                                                          3. Get Present in the Moment

                                                          Being present in the moment involves being in your body and feeling your feelings—two things that lots of folks actually don’t know how to do.

                                                          Ask yourself these two questions: What does fear feel like in your body? What are you afraid of?

                                                          If you don’t know the answer to these questions, you probably aren’t present in the moment. Being present involves vulnerability, humility, and openness[2].

                                                          How to live a stress free life by being present

                                                            The past and the future stop being so relevant and intriguing when you’re able to get in your body and feel your feelings. When you can do these two things, you actually want to be in the present moment.

                                                            To get started, close your eyes, focus on your breathing, and watch your stress levels drop. Then, try these tips: How to Live in the Moment and Stop Worrying.

                                                            4. Focus on What You Have, Not What You Don’t

                                                            The easiest way to stop focusing on what you don’t have is by not watching TV commercials. Marketing teaches us to focus on what we don’t have, and advertising campaigns spend millions of dollars convincing us that we must have what we don’t yet have.

                                                            Can you think of a marketing campaign that teaches you to enjoy what you already have without buying something to enhance it? Odds are you can’t.

                                                            In a world dictated by Super Bowl commercials and Facebook ads, it takes stalwart focus to recognize what you have more than what you don’t. If you want a stress-free life now, get stalwart, and stop letting other people dictate your focus.

                                                            In order to do this, try cultivating a gratitude practice to help refocus your mind toward what is good in your life. You can get started with this guide.

                                                            5. Stop Surrounding Yourself With People Who Don’t Make You Happy

                                                            Honestly, what kind of people do you really like to be around with? People who get you, who see you clearly, who accept your flaws and all; people you can be yourself with; people who have shared interests?

                                                            How many of those people are in your life? What characteristics do all of the other people in your life have?

                                                            If you find that the people in your life aren’t adding anything positive, it may be time to make some changes. If you find that other relationships you have are downright toxic, start working to cut out those relationships immediately.

                                                            6. Find a Job That Makes You Feel Good

                                                            You don’t have to stay at a job just because it pays the bills. Most people spend more time working than sleeping. The average person spends 40 to 80 hours a week—or 2,000 to 4,000 hours a year—working. That is a significant investment!

                                                            If your best friend or child told you that they were going to spend 4,000 hours giving their emotional, mental, and physical energy to something (or someone) that wasn’t going to value them, give anything back to them, or pay them what they were worth, what advice would you offer? Give that same advice to yourself. You won’t be stress-free unless you don’t learn this[3].

                                                            Here’re 11 Signs That You Should Leave Your Job.

                                                            7. Only Take on What You Can Handle

                                                            Busyness is an addiction. Slowing down can actually be terrifying because it causes you to notice that you have feelings that you now have time to feel.

                                                            I get it.

                                                            By the time I slowed down, I had decades of busyness under my belt. I went into a tailspin depression because I didn’t understand how to be in the right relationship with my own emotions.

                                                            When I finally figured out that feelings are just feelings and allowing them to express themselves is healthy and natural, I stopped experiencing withdrawal from my addiction to busyness and started figuring out the pace of life that felt best for me.

                                                            Remarkably, I discovered that I don’t actually like being busy. What will you discover about yourself?

                                                            8. Let Go of Grudges and Anger

                                                            For me, it took 20 years of adulthood to figure out that holding on to grudges and anger only hurt me. Lucky for you, though, you can benefit vicariously from my experience just by reading one short paragraph!

                                                            No one is holding your feet to the fire, demanding that you hold on to grudges and anger. The energy of anger slowly eats away at your body, mind, and spirit, until one day you wake up more resentful than optimistic.

                                                            One day, people no longer want to be around you because the stink of negativity is oozing out of your pores. One day, you even get tired of hearing yourself get angry. And the person or people you are angry at or holding grudges against probably haven’t been affected at all.

                                                            Who gets hurt the most in that process of repeating negative thoughts? You do.

                                                            Some good advice for you here: How to Let Go of Resentment and Anger

                                                            9. Stop Reliving Your Past

                                                            To live a stress-free life, you have to stop reliving your past. I know it seems like fun to compare everything in your present to your past, and to experience the present through past-colored glasses, but it actually isn’t.

                                                            When you wear past-colored glasses, you can’t truly experience the present for what it is. Your boyfriend or girlfriend gets compared to a list of expectations and failed relationships rather than recognized for the unique blessing they are in your life.

                                                            Your boss gets compared to all the bosses who came before her/him. Your friends’ ability to parent gets compared to your parents’ ability to parent.

                                                            People, including you, deserve to stand on their own past-free merit.

                                                            There are always going to be people elected into office whom you don’t like, taxes that you don’t want to pay, idiot drivers who refuse to move out of the left-hand lane, and a person ahead of you in the check-out line who won’t stop chatting with the clerk.

                                                            The great benefit of being human is that we get to experience all of what life offers us. To live stress-free is to learn to deal with this fact.

                                                            Dwelling on your frustration with something that can’t be changed doesn’t do anything other than drag you down. You are the only person who will ultimately decide how to respond to what is.

                                                            11. Stop Living Through Other People’s Lives

                                                            Someone else’s life is not your life. Your life is your life.

                                                            What that means is you get to live your life in the way you want. You get to make ridiculous mistakes, take leaps of faith, and stuff things inside your handbag of fear just as much as the next person.

                                                            Going through stuff is the whole great messy adventure of being human! Being alive and living life is terrifying and glorious and everything in between.

                                                            Stop living through social media, trying to soak in all of the experiences everyone else is having. Focus, instead, on what it feels like to be you in this moment. You may find you like it.

                                                            An astounding thing happens when you reduce stress and anxiety, get into a relationship with your body, mind, and spirit, and just be yourself without judgment.

                                                            Your life literally slows down. You stop wishing for the weekend. You begin to live in each moment, and you start feeling like a human being. You just ride the wave that is life, with this feeling of contentment and joy.

                                                            You move fluidly, steadily, calmly, and gratefully. A veil is lifted, and a whole new perspective is born through improved mental health. And this is how you live a stress-free life.
