11 Reasons Why Your Little Sister Is Your Biggest Blessing

11 Reasons Why Your Little Sister Is Your Biggest Blessing

She will forever be your go-to Netflix date, your late-night life talk partner, and your absolute best friend.

She's the person you care for with all your heart and sometimes hate passionately. She's the one you misbehave with yet the one who often keeps you in check. You've been there since her day one, and she changed your life forever. She is truly your partner in every crime, your shoulder to cry on when life is too much to handle on your own, and the very best friend you never expected to love this much. She's your little sister, and there are many reasons why she is the best thing that ever happened to you.


1. She makes you want to be a better person.

She's your baby sister, and you want her to grow up to be a genuine and well-respected person, which means you must be that person for her to look up to. She gives you a reason to be better.

2. You were her first friend, and that is a difficult bond to break.

From the day she was born, you were who she latched onto. You were her friend before she knew anyone else, and that makes your relationship unbelievably strong.

3. She matures you.

You find yourself feeling motherly when it comes to your little sister. Your instinct will always be to protect her, often maturing you beyond your years.

4. She will always keep you young.

Although you want to be a grown-up example in her life, she will always be a reminder to have more fun and to let loose. She also has a better sense of style than you ever did at her age, so pay attention.

5. Your life-long friends have known her almost as long as you have, and they love her too.

You may have been her very first friend, but your friends fell in love with her at a young age as well. You know you've got a pretty great little sister when your friends never fail to hug her upon arrival.

6. She supports your decisions.

This does not mean she will always agree with them, but as your sister, she trusts you to do the right thing.

7. And helps you make the ones that stump you.

She may not have as much life experience as you do, but sometimes this can work to your advantage. She hasn't made as many mistakes as you have, and this can mean she's not afraid to take chances and push you to make scary decisions.

8. Distance is no match for you two.

You could go long periods of time without talking and nothing would change. You'll pick up right where you left off every time, although you prefer to stay in touch consistently.

9. You've become really good at giving advice and looking out for people.

Your little sister will come to you for advice, and you become more and more prepared to give it every time. This experience has also helped you help your friends when they need your input.

10. You will always be needed.

We all want to feel like we are a necessity to someone; we want to feel like we are improving someone's quality of life. While you may find this in other relationships over the years, your little sister will always need you, and it will always be rewarding.

11. She's a constant in your ever-changing life.

People will come and go in your life. Relationships will end and friends will fade, but your sister isn't going anywhere.

The day she was brought home, your sister changed your life dramatically. Maybe you were an only child before she came along, and she stole your thunder for a little while, but you'll forgive her for it. You'll realize that she changed your life for the better. She became your truest friend and your biggest blessing.

A Letter To My Sister For Her First Semester In College

Some Advice to My Sister For Her First Semester

To My Sister,

I'm going to start by saying how proud I am of you and your accomplishments thus far and making it to the first step of a long but important journey of your life, college.

It seems like only yesterday we were just two kids who wanted to both be pop stars when we grew up so we prepared by performing at places like nursing homes and festivals to prepare (even though we got over that phase by the time we hit 5th grade). I'm writing this letter to you in hopes of giving good advice and wisdom from my 5 years of struggling as a college student.

Never Give Up On ANYTHING

You need to believe that you can do anything that you set your mind to because YOU CAN. I know it seems like the impossible when you're trying to pull that first all-nighter to finish a paper that is due in the morning but you got this! Even if you don't believe in yourself just remember that I do.

Stay Focused On What You Want To Accomplish

College is an awesome, fun experience in your life and I know how distracting everything else can be but make sure to focus on your projects and assignments. I know I sound like our mom but trust me when I say do your assignments for your classes because good grades lead to the things that you want most to accomplish in the future. Stay focused on what you want to accomplish and the rest will follow suit.

Always Know I'm Here For You

I promise that I will always be a text or call away if you need any help with anything. Even if you are having a tough time with deciding what you want from Taco Bell, just give me a call. You also have a wonderful family that will make a great support system (You know because I'm part of that family). I will always be by your side no matter what happens; it is kind of my job as your big sister after all.

Go Out And Explore

Explore on your own and figure out what you are most passionate about. Go join some clubs or participate in an intramural sports team. Find your passion; who knows it might just lead to what you want to do for the rest of your life.

Have Fun

Go make some friends, go to social events organized by the campus, go party (just not too hard). Remember that there is always time to take a break from the work of college and have a little fun. You can't just sit in your room all day and study till your brain is fried. Working hard comes with the relief of having a break every once in a while as well. College is a once in a lifetime experience so don't miss out on it.

I love you with all of my heart. We have been through thick and thin together and can't wait to see what the future has for the two of us. I'm ready to see what you can accomplish and know that YOU CAN DO IT!

With Love,

Your Big Sis

When You're The Youngest Sibling, This Is Your Life

The youngest siblings always get thrown under the bus, but we win our parents' hearts.

Being the youngest sibling definitely has its perks, and your older siblings are jealous. Your parents take your side in arguments that you start, you get to take clothes, and you are able to boss around your older siblings to drive you around. It's not always the greatest being the youngest sibling, however, because you are constantly being watched and must live up to the standards of your oldest brother or sister.

1. Sneaking through your older siblings' closet

Being the youngest sibling means free clothes; however, it’s not very simple snatching these clothes from your sibling’s closets. There’s a strategy to sneaking around, but the second you hear footsteps up the stairs, you suddenly become a track star.

2. Lasting impressions on teachers

You are never excited to see a teacher on your schedule that your older sibling once had. “Oh you’re _____’s sister?” can either mean a constant competition to live up to your sibling’s standards or an automatic terrible first impression because of your sibling’s misbehavior in the past.

3. Your parents always take your side

Let’s face it, you constantly fight like cats and dogs with your siblings. Even if you started the battle, your parents always take your side.. Watching your older siblings get punished after because of something you started was always the best sight to see.

4. You have your own chauffeur

Your older siblings are always there to drive you around, and they can’t say no to the baby of the house. However, when your siblings picked you up, it could have been really embarrassing.

5. Baby pictures who?

Remember when you had to look for a cute #tbt or a baby picture for your senior yearbook, and all you could find was pictures of your older siblings? Your parents had professional photo shoots for the older brothers and sisters, but the only pictures you could find of yourself were only a few snapshots in the back of the albums.

6. They know how to push your buttons

The teasing never ends when you’re the youngest of the family. Your siblings know exactly how to make you angry, and they will constantly do so even after you throw a meltdown.

7. They're always on your case

You don’t get any privacy as the youngest. Your siblings always know what is happening in your life. You constantly think of new ways to keep your life private, but it always fails.

8. The oldest sibling gets priority, and you get hand-me-downs

You usually get your way in most situations, but when it comes to big items, seniority rules. You have to act like this doesn't hurt you. When doesn't the youngest sibling get their way?

9. You’re thankful to have them by your side

Through constant unjust battles, hair pulling and stealing clothes, you are more than thankful to have great role models to look up to. No one messes with you because they have to go through your older siblings first.

No matter how many hairs are pulled, skin is broken, or clothes are stolen, siblings always stick together.
