10 Undeniable Signs Your Sister Is Your 'Person'

10 Undeniable Signs Your Sister Is Your 'Person'

The bond we share is like non other experienced in life.

Everyone should have their person, whether that person is a significant other, a friend, or a family member.

Here are 10 reasons why my sister is my person (or why my sisters are my people):

1. You hang out with her allllll the time.

I mean, who wouldn't want to hang out their sister all the time? She knows every little detail about you--even the ugly ones--and still chooses to be seen with you in public on a regular basis. Score.

2. She's the first person you call up when you have some big news to spill--both good and bad.

If it's good, she's your biggest cheerleader, but if it's bad, watch out world because sister is coming fully loaded and ready to throw down.

3. When you're feeling down, she knows just how to cheer you up.

Have you seen my sisters act goofy? It's pretty hilarious. I don't think anyone could keep crying after watching them for a few hours.

4. She's your first friend.

Whether you were born first or she was, it doesn't really matter, because there is no closer relationship than one that starts at birth. You literally were one of the first people to hold her in your arms (besides your parents), it doesn't get much better than that.

5. Honesty is never an issue.

This definitely brings out the love/hate aspect of your relationship. You love her opinion because you always know she would never lie to you, but then sometimes, the truth could be handled in a much more delicate manner.

6. You play to each other's strengths.

I have three sisters and we all bring different attributes to the table. I have the tough-outdoorsy sister, the musically talented but also killer athlete sister, and the crafty fashion queen of the family. And you might be asking where I fall, well, I'm the oldest and the natural born leader of the family. So yes, we definitely have all areas of life covered.

7. She's always going to be there.

Whether you like it or not. It really doesn't matter how many times you fight, you have this special bond that allows you to forgive and forget, regardless of the damage of the crime.

8. She is an amazing support system.

Nervous for the big test coming up? Have a job interview that is totally stressing you out? You're a starter for the district finals game? You have a big dance recital coming up? Whatever the case may be, your sister will always be there to offer encouraging words or words of advice to get you through your most stressful moments.

9. She inspires you every day.

I may be the oldest, but my three younger sisters inspire me every single day to be the very best version of me.

10. No one will ever ruin the relationship you have or the bond you share.

Not even your future or current significant other. Sure the relationship may change slighlty, but your sister(s) will always continue to support, motivate, inspire, cheer you up, laugh at your stories, reminisce on the good ole days, and will never leave you.

So to my parents, thank you for blessing me with three beautiful younger sisters (and my brothers too I guess). And to my sisters, thank you for being my people, I don't know where I would be in my life without you.

Love you long time,

Your big sis.

To The Senior Graduating High School In A Month

"What feels like the end, is often the beginning."

It wasn’t too long ago that I was in your shoes. Just a little over a year ago, I was the senior that had a month left. One month left in the hometown that I grew up in. One month left with the friends that I didn’t want to leave. One month left in the place that I had called “my school” for the past four years. You are probably thinking the same things I thought whenever it came down to only 30 days left. You’re probably scared, nervous, worried, or anxious. Maybe you’re like me and are dying to get out of high school, ready to start a new chapter. Or maybe you aren’t so ready yet. Maybe you’re wishing for a little more time.

As scary as it is, this month you have left will fly by. You’ll blink and you’ll be standing in your cap and gown, waiting for your name to be called to receive your diploma. You’ll look back on your last four years at your school and wonder why time went by so fast. It’ll be bittersweet. However, trust me when I say that you have so much to look forward to. You are about to begin taking the steps to build your future. You are going to grow and learn so much more than any high school class could teach you. You are going to meet amazing people and accomplish amazing things. So, as scared as you might be, I encourage you to take that first step out of your comfort zone and face this world head on. Chase your dreams and work towards your goals. You are smart. You are brave. You are capable of achieving amazing things. All your life, the lessons you have learned have prepared you for this point in your life. You are more than ready.

There are times when you will feel alone, scared, or confused. There are times when it won’t always be easy. But those are the times when you will shine the most because I know you will work through whatever problems you may face. Don’t think of the bad times as a terrible thing. Use them all as learning experiences. As author Joshua Marine once said, “Challenges are what make life interesting and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.”

You might think that this is the end. However, it’s not. This is only the beginning. Trust me when I say that the adventures and opportunities you are about to face are nothing compared to high school. Whether you are going to college, going to work, or something else, this is the beginning of your journey called life. It will be exciting, it will be terrifying, but it will all be worth it.

So, as you walk out of your high school for the very last time, I encourage you to take a deep breath. Relax. You’ll always have the memories to look back on from high school. But your time is now, it begins today. Embrace it.

Being Close To Your Cousins Is The Best Thing That Can Happen To You

Who needs therapists when you have cousins like mine?


My cousins bring out the best in me. When I'm with them, I am happier. They have played a significant role in shaping my mind and my soul. My cousins are the most meaningful people in my life—my life would be incomplete without them. Here are six reasons why cousins are awesome!

1. They help you define yourself 


My cousins know me inside out. When I find myself in situations where a choice has to be made, be it choosing my career or just another pizza, my cousins have helped me choose—they know me so well! There have been times when my cousins knew things about me that I myself didn't know. It's always good to see yourself through others' eyes, and no one can get as real as your cousins.

2. They inspire you 


Dance is something that I feel I was destined to do. It is one hobby I could never give up. My childhood is marked with memories of my cousin Rishabh and I going crazy to Bollywood songs. His passion and energy acted as my fuel. It is with him that I discovered the dancer hidden within me. His love for dance continues to inspire me each day.

3. They are there for you, no matter what 


My cousins have always been there for me, through thick and thin. They have helped me understand and control my emotions. Who needs therapists when you have cousins like mine?

4. You learn so much from them 


My cousin Shivam formed the image of an ideal elder brother in my life. He always stood with what was right and fought against the wrong. I look up to him because in him I see someone who is wise way beyond his years. I see a nurturing, supportive, patient man who is aware of his words and actions. Being the eldest of us all, he made sure we felt happy and safe. From him, I have learned the importance of selfless love, humility, and of always being right. Growing up with these amazing people that I call my cousins, I learned new things every day.

5. They understand you 


They were there through the hair color phase, the nose ring phase, the Taylor Swift phase, and they never judged you.

6. They're like parents, but cooler 


When you make a mistake, they will correct you. When you cross the line, they will put you back in your place. But when you want to go out partying, they'll also help you pick an outfit!

Cousins are a blessing in disguise. And if you have cousins like mine, oh boy, you must be lucky! My cousins make the challenging path toward adulthood worth walking. They make life worth living. And as we part ways and move into different cities, our hearts will always be together and their lessons always with me.
