15 Signs You Have the Sweetest Sister in the World

15 Signs You Have the Sweetest Sister in the World

How much do you appreciate your sisters? Through the times you have spent together, growing and understanding the world, do you appreciate the value and spark she may have contributed to your world? It does take a keener eye to see what a sister represents in our world. Here are 15 signs to know you have the sweetest sister in the world.

1. You had someone who helped you build your character

Whether it was you or her who made the rules, there were limitations in your relationship that made you understand why you shouldn’t force yourself on other people. It was character building for you to offer her space to operate.

2. You shared a lot of toys and gadgets with her

It was up to you to make your parents know that you could share things with your sister. If you never abused the responsibility she shared a lot of things with you, from toys to gadgets.

3. You gave each other real talk

With your sister there was no faking since they were with you most of the time. Your sister could offer an honest opinion on anything that involved you.

4. You had someone to cover your back

In moments when you had no money and you needed to borrow, or times when you were jobless, you could always call on your sister. She was there to shield you from certain worries of life.

5. You had someone to pour out your emotions to

Whether it was anger or frustration, you had someone who you could project your emotion on. While friends can change, your sister will always (eventually) unconditionally love you.

6. You were complimented by her

She was different from you and was there to make you feel part of a whole. You looked up to her in many ways and she did the same to you.

7. You were made to be responsible for her

Sometimes she was like your child, sometimes she was like your mother. You had a measure of responsibility towards her, whether it was in her choice of relationships or fashion, you had to be protective of who she was on the outside.

8. You had something to brag about

Even if you criticized her and felt envious of her, you had something to brag about to the world. That is why you would post her achievements, and share her pretty pictures on social media.

9. You always made the best team with her

Even when you antagonized each other, you know you were the best team against your parents and relatives. If there was a major event or a major project, teaming up with her offered the best solution.

10. You had someone who could offer you a richer perspective on life

You could not have seen the world the way it is or should be on your own. You may have had some concepts here and there, but your sister was there to make you see the world from a more holistic angle and offer her opinion when you needed it.

11. You had no better intimate friend

As you grew older you understood how much your relationship with your sister had been tested, and how it had survived and become stronger. Yes, she had seen you naked, watched you cry after failing a test or being bullied in school. She had a firsthand knowledge of your growth and how you evolved.

12. You could not always be angry with her

Yes, you had fights and certain things that she did must have gotten you mad. Even when you were angry with her and she seemed impossible to deal with, you had more than enough reasons to mend differences and move on.

13. You could be stupid around her

With her, you could take things a little further, like laughing out louder, being more cynical, farting when you didn’t have to. You could be more silly with your sister and it all seemed ordinary.

14. You had in her a playmate

There were times when things got boring in the house and you could brighten up your day by walking over to her room. She was there to cheer you up and made you feel good about yourself.

15. You will always miss her

You realize how important to your world she is when she leaves. Although you might think that you would have the house or room to yourself, you discover how emotional you become when you find her room and bed empty. You miss her!

7 Signs of an Unhappy Relationship That Makes You Feel Stuck

7 Signs of an Unhappy Relationship That Makes You Feel Stuck

Relationships are complicated and when you’re unhappy, it can be difficult to tell what’s causing it and what needs to change.

Sometimes it’s as easy as opening up to your partner about your problems, while other times it may be necessary to switch partners or roll solo to get your mind straight.

When you’re in the thick of things, it can be difficult to tell if you’re unhappy in your relationship or just unhappy in general (in which case, a relationship may be just the cure you need).

Here’re signs of an unhappy relationship that is possibly making you feel stuck:

1. You’re depressed about your home life.

No matter what you do in life, you’re going to have good and bad days. Your relationship is no different.

However, no matter what you’re going through at home, you have to feel comfortable in your own home.

If you constantly dread going home because your significant other is there, there’s a problem. Maybe it’s something you already know about, everyone has an argument or just needs some alone time.

When that yearning to be alone becomes an insatiable obsession over the course of months and years, it’s time to realize you’re not the exception to the rule.

You’re unhappy in your relationship, and you need to take a look in the mirror and do whatever it takes to make yourself smile.

2. You aren’t comfortable being yourself.

Remember all those things you discovered about yourself when you first got together? The way your partner made you feel when you met that made you fall in love with him or her in the first place.

If they don’t make you feel that way anymore, it’s not the end of the world. If your partner makes you uncomfortable about being you, then her or she is only dragging you down. It’s up to you to decide how to handle that.

You need to be comfortable with who you are. This means being comfortable in your skin and with the way you walk, talk, look, breath, move, and all the other things that make you uniquely you.

If the person who supposedly loves you doesn’t make you feel good about yourself, know that you can do better. They’re not even one in a billion.

3. You can’t stop snooping.

Mutual trust is necessary in any relationship. The only way to get that trust is with respect.

I can find you anywhere online, no matter how private and secure you think you are. The odds of you having a password I can’t crack are slim. If we’ve met in person, I could install a remote key logger on your device without even touching it.

Finding your information online hardly takes a clandestine organization. Any idiot with a Wi-Fi-enabled device can cyberstalk you. I’m just the only idiot in the village admitting it.

So now that we know everyone snoops, it’s time to address your personal habits. Governments snoop because they don’t trust us. If you’re snooping on your partner, it’s because you don’t trust them.

It’s ok to have doubts, and it’s perfectly normal to look into anything that looks weird, but keep in mind that data collection is only half of an investigation.

If you find yourself constantly snooping and questioning everything, clearly there’s a trust issue and the relationship likely needs to end.

4. You’re afraid of commitment.

If you’ve been dating longer than a year and you aren’t engaged, it’s never going to happen.

Commitment is important. People will come up with a million ways to describe why they can’t be committed.

No matter who you are if you like it, you need to put a ring on it. Find an engagement ring, stick a gemstone in it and marry the person. If you’re not legally able to get married or you don’t believe in it for one reason or another, have a child (or adopt one, however you’re able to) or treat your partner’s family like your own. It’s a huge financial and mental commitment.

If you’re not ready for one or the other after some time, don’t waste anymore of your precious life on the relationship.

Your relationship should be something that propels you forward. If it’s not going anywhere, make it an open relationship and call it what it is—dating multiple people.

5. You imagine a happier life without your partner.

If all you’re doing is imagining a happier life without your partner, it’s a sign that you’re in the wrong relationship. You’re unhappy and you need to get out.

Your partner should be included in your dreams. There’s nothing wrong with wanting a future with someone.

Try to remember what you dreamed of before you got your heart broken by the realities of life, love and the pursuit of human success.

Remember when you would crush on that cute kid in class? You would secretly imagine marrying him or her and going on an adventure—that’s the way life should be.

If you’re not at least imagining adventures together, then why are you in that relationship?

6. You resent, rather than love your partner.

When a relationship starts to crumble, you begin to resent your partner for all the things you once loved about him or her.

When you’ve reached this point, your partner has reached at least No. 2 on this list. From your partner’s perspective, your unhappiness with them is picked up as bashing them for being who they are.

If you’re both unhappy in the relationship, it’s better if it ends as quickly and painlessly as possible.

7. You chase past feelings.

It’s okay to reminisce about the past, but if all you do is wish things were like they used to be, it’s a sign you’re not on the right path.

You’re unhappy and, at the very least, you need to have an open dialogue about it. This isn’t necessarily a sign that the relationship should end, but it definitely needs a spark.

When you talk to your partner candidly about what it is you’re looking for, you never know how they’ll react. The risk alone is worth it, good or bad.

Final thoughts

If you’re feeling stuck in your current relationship, it’s time to reflect about it with your partner. Don’t ignore these signs of an unhappy relationship as they will slowly go worse and harm both you and your partner in long-term.
