20 Truths Of Sisterhood When You're The Only Girl

If you grew up with brothers, you can't even try to deny the truth that is to follow. And if you didn't, consider yourself (un)lucky.

1. You know for a fact that girl's definitely DON'T take the longest time to get ready.

2. You don't freak out about talking to guys because you've trained for this your entire life.

3. When your brother brings home a new girl, you don't judge her because you're petty, but because she could be your actual sister one day.

4. All of the sweatshirts, sweatpants, and t-shirts you've stolen from them are 10x more comfy than your own.

5. And they're willing to fight to the death to get them back (or just tell your mom).

6. You sometimes wish you had a sister.

7. And then you realize you escaped an over emotional, tear filled, drama riddled childhood and you're perfectly okay with that.

8. You still watch TV and say "that's you" when the villain/nerd/annoying character comes on screen.

9. You can't introduce yourself to a cute guy without getting the "Oh, are you ________'s sister?" response.

10. Now that you're older, there's an unspoken rule that "if you don't show Mom, I won't show Mom".

11. You still get flashbacks of sprinting to the shower in fear your brother would make it in there before you.

12. You're not even phased by your boyfriend's weird habits because you've been desensitized (aka watched your brothers eat spoonfuls of ketchup and pick ticks off of each other like monkeys).

13. Attempts at finding the adult version of the feeling of awe you got while watching your sibling say something rude or snappy to your parents prove unsuccessful... because nothing quite compares to the power of Mom & Dad compelling them into next week.

14. You still get the urge to run up and block the cable box (or even turn of the TV entirely) when someone doesn't want to watch the same thing as you.

15. You can't eat a real meal with them because they inhale their food as if they were a real life vacuum cleaner.

16. Getting the constant reminder that 14 years ago you pushed the other into the entertainment center and he had to go to the emergency room because he split is head open and somehow after 14 years of hearing about it you're supposed to still feel bad.

17. Taking pride in how nice and girly you smell now because from ages 3-12 you smelled like dirt and sweat from running around with the animals you call brothers.

18. Still experiencing that twisted kind of sibling telepathy when at awkward family events.

19. You still give each other a hard time for literally everything. Good grades, new sports, the people they call "friends"-- you name it.

20. Somehow, after all this time, everything still remains a competition.

Being the only girl may consist of way too many sporting events and not much alone time, but having brothers is one of the coolest things and I wouldn't trade it for the world.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.
