6 Reasons Why My Sisters are My Best Friends

6 Reasons Why My Sisters are My Best Friends

They are always there, even when you don't want them to be

Anyone with sisters knows the struggle of the love-hate relationship that comes with your sister. I have four other siblings, two brothers and two sisters. My sisters and I grew up sharing everything because we are so close in age, which I believe is why we are so close today, There are times when I want to hurt my sisters, especially when I see them wearing my clothes, but there are so many more moments when I can't wait to talk to, hug, and sing Hannah Montana with my sisters.

1. We have the same sense of humor

My sisters can say one word to me to make me laugh. Whenever there is a tense moment in the family, I can count on one of my sisters to crack a joke and lighten the mood. I cannot count the amount of times my dad told us to stop being mean to each other and we would respond "That's just how we talk to each other".

2. We wear the same size clothes

Two more closets! Nothing better than not having anything to wear and being able to look through two more wardrobes. While this may start wars at home, I always find something to wear.

3. They are always there for you

They have seen me at my worst and at my best. They are always there to hug after a long day or dance when in need of a study break.

4. The Secret Language

As children, we would mumble nonsense to each other and know exactly what the other is saying. Now, this language has evolved into simple looks and small phrases that make up whole conversations.

5. You can be worst enemies and best friends in the same hour

These texts were sent within the span of thirty minutes.

6. They aren't afraid to hurt your feelings

I always text my sisters first when deciding what to post on Instagram or figuring out what outfit to wear because I know that they don't care if they hurt my feelings.

Although at times my sisters drive me crazy, being away from them in college has helped me realize that they are my best friends, the ones who know me the best.

A Thank You To My Boyfriend's Family

Because you are so important to him, you are important to me.

This one isn't easy to sit down and write because nothing I could say would do all of you justice in the way that I would hope I could. These are just words, but I hope that I am able to always show my thank you to you by treating him like the prince he is.

I can replay the moment of meeting each and every one of you all over and over in my head like it was yesterday. I was so extremely nervous every single time and I was trying to gather all the "right" things to say that would leave a good, first-lasting impression and that at the end of the day, you all would like me.

I think one of the most important basis and hopes in my relationship is that my significant other's family likes who I am. This is so important to me because whatever is important to him is equally important to me and your thoughts of me are crucial to our relationship.

The second I walked in the door, I was overwhelmed—overwhelmed with such a love. I had no idea at that point in time just how much you would all mean to me and how thankful I am for all of you!

Thank you for constantly making me laugh and feel at home.

Whenever I'm coming over for a family gathering or just to hang out, I know right off that I am walking into a world of laughter and good times are right beside that. You are all so entertaining and always have a good story to tell me. I can't name one time where I didn't feel like I was home.

And I appreciate the sweet, embarrassing photos and stories about my boyfriend that you all share with me! Even if it is by a photo, I have a glimpse of what his life has always been like thanks to each and every one of you individually.

Thank you for sharing your special moments in life with me.

You don't ever have to, but you invite me anyway. Whether it's just a family gathering, a birthday, or a holiday, I am thankful to have spent those times celebrating these moments in life alongside such amazing people. It's humbling and heartwarming to be a part of memories so unforgettable that you all share and that you have welcomed me to be a part of. They are days that I will never forget and have a place in my heart forever.

Thank you for always being there for him.

Since we have started dating, I have watched the way that you guys love him. I have watched the individual relationships and moments that you share with him make a difference in who he is. I have seen you all love and support him, no matter what he was doing.

With everything that comes along in life, this has been a simple reminder of an unconditional, loving, sacrificing family that is also the best support system. You are not only impacting him, but me, too.

Thank you for welcoming me in like your own.

Whenever you have to brave up and meet your significant other's family, I can say, for myself, that I didn't know what to expect. As I'm sure, none of you did when meeting me. Today, I catch myself wondering why I even worried in the first place. You all have welcomed me in your own ways and made me feel right at home. It is not always easy to do that with just anyone, but you have all taken the time to get to know me. And now I know that if I ever needed anything, I can call one of you.

Thank you for letting me date him.

I am most thankful for this. Thank you for sharing him with me and giving me a chance to show you all how important he is to me. I never thought that I would luck out and meet someone as special, kind, and wonderful as he is, but I did.

You have supported our relationship, given me a chance to love him, and welcomed me to new adventures in love and family. I have the upmost gratitude for each of you. You are the most wonderful, welcoming, and loving family. I am overjoyed to be able to experience just a glimpse of this life with him and with all of you.

When It Comes To Being An Only Child, The Pros Outweigh The Cons

To be the only child in your household could mean endless attention, but sometimes that's not always a great thing.


In any conversation when meeting someone for the first time, there are some questions that are always asked. What is your favorite color? What are your hobbies? But there is one question that sticks out to me: do you have any siblings?

To be honest, I've never thought about what life was like growing up with siblings. Not until people started asking me those questions. I am an only child, but I grew up with cousins, so I've never felt too lonely. However, there are some pros and cons of growing up as an only child.

1. Pro #1: Sharing

You don't have to worry about sharing your personal things with sibling(s). What's yours is yours.

2. Con #1: Loneliness

Some people experience loneliness as an only child because they don't have an extra person to understand or play with them. Sometimes this may affect a child's development in interactions with other people.

3. Pro #2: Independence

Because you never had to rely on anyone growing up, there are lower expectations for relying on other people. You develop a mindset that you're okay with being alone and becoming very independent. However, that can affect your relationship with others later on in life.

4. Con #2: Helicopter parent(s)

This can be a very unhealthy relationship to develop with your parent(s). It can prevent you from becoming independent later on in life and you can grow too dependent on your parent(s). This can also grow into rebellious stages or resentment towards them. For parents, they have a difficult time pushing their child out of the nest.

5. Pro #3: No favorites

You will never have to fight for affection. There's no one else to compete with or compare yourself to.

6. Bonus pro/con: attention

This can be a pro and a con because as an only child, you have all the attention on you. However, this can also lead to helicopter parenting which is unhealthy and sometimes can leave you very spoiled.

7. Pro #4: Everything is new

Hand-me-downs don't even exist. Clothes, toys, and other things are brand new for you.

8. Con #3: Jealousy

I know I definitely felt sad that I couldn't relate to the relationship my friends had with their sibling(s). I wished I was able to look up or have somebody to look up to me.

9. Pro #5: The price of one

This is mostly a pro for parents, but they won't have to worry about paying or buying multiples of things.

10. Con #4: No partner in crime

Yes, your partner in crime can be your friends, but your sibling grows up with you and they go through similar situations with you, which creates a special kind of bond. Friends can't compare to a sibling's bond.
