12 Reasons Your Sister Is Your Best Friend

12 Reasons Your Sister Is Your Best Friend

We're all in this together, right?

How do people make it through life without sisters?

For real, though.

Here are 12 reasons why you need to have a sister in your life:

1. Honest Advice

Do you want honest advice on how you look in that outfit? Ask your sister. She will always be 100% honest with you, even if she tells you that you look like a potato in the dress you thought was cute.

2. She Never Leaves

It doesn't matter how mad she makes you or how much you fight, your sister will always be there for you at the end of the day.

3. She Listens To Your Problems

Bad day? Boy problems? Having trouble with school? Friend issues? Your sister has your back. She is always there to listen to every little problem you may be having in your life, and sometimes she even offers good advice.

4. She Can Always Make You Laugh

I don't know about you, but I have the funniest sisters ever. We are either yelling at each other or laughing until our stomachs hurt. There is literally no in between, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

5. You Have The Best Inside Jokes

Seriously, though.

6. Car Rides Are The Best

With my sisters, car rides consist of jamming out to Hannah Montana or High School Musical songs and singing at the top of our lungs. We're all in this together, right?

7. You Don't Really Mind Sharing A Room

I mean when your sister is your best friend, why wouldn't you want to share a room with them?

8. There's Always Things To Do

Shopping, movies, food, and sister bonding. What more could a girl want?

9. She is Your Biggest Supporter

On a sports team? You bet your sister will try her hardest to be there and cheer you on the entire time. Dance recital, piano concert, animal shows, or whatever it may be, your sister will be there for you, cheering you on the entire time.

10. She Motivates You To Always Do Your Best

If I'm on the verge of giving up, my sisters are always there to pick me up and push me along. They always know the right words to say to keep me going, even if it is tough love.

11. You Can't Wait To Tell Them About Your Day

If I'm home at a decent hour of the day, you can be sure my sisters are talking their ears off about everything that happened in their days. It makes me so happy to hear how excited they are to talk to me, I absolutely love it!

12. She Is Your Partner In Crime

Without my sisters, I honestly don't know where I would be in my life. They are my best friends and I love them all so much.

Shout out to my sisters, Kelly, Katie, and Kendra. Thanks for being you.

I'm A Woman And You Can't Convince Me Breastfeeding In Public Is OK In 2019

Sorry, not sorry.


Lately, I have seen so many people going off on social media about how people shouldn't be upset with mothers breastfeeding in public. You know what? I disagree.

There's a huge difference between being modest while breastfeeding and just being straight up careless, trashy and disrespectful to those around you. Why don't you try popping out a boob without a baby attached to it and see how long it takes for you to get arrested for public indecency? Strange how that works, right?

So many people talking about it bring up the point of how we shouldn't "sexualize" breastfeeding and seeing a woman's breasts while doing so. Actually, all of these people are missing the point. It's not sexual, it's just purely immodest and disrespectful.

If you see a girl in a shirt cut too low, you call her a slut. If you see a celebrity post a nude photo, you call them immodest and a terrible role model. What makes you think that pulling out a breast in the middle of public is different, regardless of what you're doing with it?

If I'm eating in a restaurant, I would be disgusted if the person at the table next to me had their bare feet out while they were eating. It's just not appropriate. Neither is pulling out your breast for the entire general public to see.

Nobody asked you to put a blanket over your kid's head to feed them. Nobody asked you to go feed them in a dirty bathroom. But you don't need to basically be topless to feed your kid. Growing up, I watched my mom feed my younger siblings in public. She never shied away from it, but the way she did it was always tasteful and never drew attention. She would cover herself up while doing it. She would make sure that nothing inappropriate could be seen. She was lowkey about it.

Mindblowing, right? Wait, you can actually breastfeed in public and not have to show everyone what you're doing? What a revolutionary idea!

There is nothing wrong with feeding your baby. It's something you need to do, it's a part of life. But there is definitely something wrong with thinking it's fine to expose yourself to the entire world while doing it. Nobody wants to see it. Nobody cares if you're feeding your kid. Nobody cares if you're trying to make some sort of weird "feminist" statement by showing them your boobs.

Cover up. Be modest. Be mindful. Be respectful. Don't want to see my boobs? Good, I don't want to see yours either. Hard to believe, I know.

To My Little Sister Who Became My Best Friend

You are so strong. Never forget that.


It's no secret that most siblings go through periods of loving and hating each other before they become best friends. My parents always told us "don't burn bridges with your sister, one day she'll be your best friend," and like most moody teenagers, I would roll my eyes and walk away.

How could I ever become best friends with this person who stole my clothes, who would flirt with the boys I liked, who had more friends than I ever would?

To my surprise, I went off to college, and my sister became my best and closest friend.

To my not-so-little-sister (yes, we're only 13 months apart. Thanks, mom!) who finally became my best friend,

I know I haven't said it enough over the last 18-years, but I love you. Please remember no matter how many times that I'll continue to say it now, I will always love you so much. Having a sister like you has not only been one of life's biggest challenges but one of its biggest blessings as well.

Thank you for teaching me so many lessons in our journey through life together. I know that they typically say 'learn from your older siblings' mistakes,' but let's be real, you've taught me a lot more than I could have ever shown you.

Thank you for being there for me when life gets hard. For being the only familiar face in the halls of every new school, and holding my hand after each heartbreak, I experienced. Thank you for the many late-night Steak 'n Shake runs, and hours spent with me shopping at the mall (because we both know how indecisive I get when it comes to clothes). For the times we've danced in the kitchen screaming Demi Lovato's greatest hits avoiding the piles of dishes and laundry to do before mom gets home.

These are some of the memories I will cherish forever.

Thank you for being the best secret-keeper and the person I know I can always trust the most. You've seen me at my best, but also my worst and yet you never fail to be there when I need you. Sometimes I feel like you know me better than I know myself. Thank you for accepting who I am as a person and supporting me even when others in our family do not.

Despite all of the stupid fights growing up over stealing each other's shoes or clothes or what time we were going to leave for school in the morning (that was a weird one), I don't know what I would do without you. My biggest regret in life is looking back and realizing how much time we lost fighting over the littlest things. I miss having you close to me.

Know that I'm always here for you, even if it's a 2 A.M Facetime call away. You can come to me with anything and everything. I know I don't tell you this enough, but I am so proud of who you are and the woman you are becoming.

Through both the good times and the bad, I will always be here supporting you, encouraging you, and loving you. Through thick and thin I will always be your big sister (even if it's only by 13 months) who loves you. No amount of distance, no fight, and no mistake could ever change that.

A few things I hope you always remember my dear sister: you are beautiful, smart, determined, passionate, and talented. You are so strong. Never forget that. You are so much more than you will ever believe yourself to be. You can conquer the world and reach any of the dreams that you set yourself out to achieve. I know you will! You are capable of so much more than you will ever know. Work hard, never give up.

Through everything that you do, in everything that you face, I will always be here supporting you. I am so proud of you. I can't wait to see you reach all of your dreams.

"The bond between sisters is probably the most competitive relationship within the family, but once the sisters are grown, it becomes the strongest relationship." - Margret Mead

I love you forever,

Your big sister
