For those of you who read my blog, you know how important my family is to me. You would know how ridiculously close we all are, some people may find it weird but I think it is beautiful.
My little sister and I are EXTREMELY close, possibly weirdly close. We are only 2 years apart and the last 2 in our Wyman clan to leave the house, so of course we naturally became close.
If you have a sister, you know how important she is to your life. And although you may not see that now, there may come a time when you will come to the realization that she is a strong and powerful person in your life. But before this blog post gets all sappy and emotional, I will just stop it right there. We all know I lack in the department of emotions. I want to share my favorite things about having a sister, younger or older I think everyone can relate to this blog topic! (especially those who are very close with their sister, like me) – And before you start jumping to conclusions, I do NOT and never would shame anyone who is not close with their sister, or does not have a sister. You can relate this to anyone! If you have a powerful, strong and uplifting person in your life, there you go. This can me your mom, cousin, aunt, fav teacher or friend.
No matter what I tell my sister, I know I will never be judged for it. No matter how crazy, weird, big or small she is someone I can trust with anything. I know the second I tell her, I instantly feel better and don’t even think about her reaction towards the topic. I know it will be positive, or some sort of life lesson to help me.
2.) True best friend
Of course, your siblings naturally become your first best friend. My sister and I were so close growing up, we practically did everything together. She was my little mini-me, not counting the fact people legitimately thought we were twins. Things weren’t always sunshine and butterflies, let me tell you. There were plenty of times I wanted to chop her hair off, watch her cry and laugh in her face (Whoa sarah, calm your tits on the violence) — You can tell that has been building up for years, right? KIDDING :)
My little sister was my FIRST real best friend, and one who would never choose to disappear or fade away. It was a best friend I could count on forever, no matter what.
3.) Partner in crime
Come on, lets admit that we have all had our fair share of getting into trouble growing up or made some hilariously outrageous mistake. Now think back, who was your accomplices? I can tell you mine, my sister. She was practically my “ride or die” and damn proud of it! Remember when I told you we did everything together, well… That included the bad stuff too. I’m going to just stop right here, I’ve already said too much (hi mom and dad!)
4.) Sharing is caring, right?
Maybe the reason why people always thought we were twins was because my mom absolutely adored dressing us EXACTLY the same, and I am not exaggerating about this. We literally had the same clothes, haircut, hair color, and shoes. My mom had it all down to the last detail, so f*cking embarrassing. But I think I thank her for that, in some weird sorta way. We shared practically everything after that. We pretty much had the same style and everything we had was practically shared between us. Now don’t start thinking we are these weird sisters who don’t have any individuality or identity, because we do! Although we are very alike in some ways, we are very different in others. But one thing is for sure, we had no problem in sharing (with permission, of course).
5.) Wolfpack of two
Regardless of what I was going through, my sister had my back. When I was wrong, she would tell me. When I was right, she would tell me too. It was nice knowing that I had a person who always had my back, even during hard times. We all go through hard times, and everyone can relate to the fact that it is nice to have someone there for you, even sometimes just to listen. I was lucky enough to have such a strong bond with my sister that even though we lived apart, or weren’t always together that I could pick up the phone, explain everything and she was there for me emotionally, mentally or physically, if I needed her. It was like she was my better half, and I was hers. Sometimes your soul mate doesn’t have to be your significant other, it can also be your little sister.
Thank you ALL for reading my latest blog topic, and I hope you all can relate to the things I mentioned. Of course, if you have a sister you’re close with too I’d love to hear about the awesome things you guys do together or which topic you related to the most.
