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.

I Believe In Big Brothers

A big brother is more than just someone who makes fun of you and beats up the ones who break your heart.

I believe in big brothers. Whether related by blood or water, everyone needs a big brother. Someone to guide you, find you, and fight for you. Someone you can talk to every day but still have stuff to say. Someone who makes fun of you but won't let anyone else.

When I was younger I would follow around my brother, imitating his every move. My brother would then turn around switch places with me and start imitating my every move. We were close, but then he got older and moved away for college and then a job. We didn't talk as much and I only saw him when he came home for holidays, but even then we were so busy we didn't hang out. I lost my big brother, for a little while.

When my brother moved back home, he became part of my daily life. Every day, I would pick him up from the bus stop, and he would ask,

"Do you want ice cream because I want ice cream? Let's get DQ."

I could never pass up ice cream so we would we would drive around screaming Fergie at the top of our lungs and finishing the treat, making sure our mom didn't find out we had it.

Two Oreo and cookie dough blizzards later and the secrets began to spill. We would tell each other everything- relationship problems, work/school issues, things mom did that annoyed us, secrets we couldn't tell our parents, the TV shows we were watching. As the music blasted through the speakers, my brother gave me advice and explained his problems. Then the radio switched to Taylor Swift and we would spend a couple of seconds sharing our hatred for her, but in the end, our voices synced up as we sang along.

As I left for college, leaving my big brother was so sad. I would miss the ice cream runs, boxing fights, and late night eating sessions. It's hard to be away from your best friend.

But college brought us closer. As I began to follow the same path as my brother, he was able to guide and lead me to avoid his mistakes. Even though we were miles apart we still continued our usual antics.

A big brother is more than just someone who makes fun of you and beats up the ones who break your heart. A big brother is someone who teaches you how to be sarcastic, calls you just to tell you about the terrible show he watched and knows when someone's not good enough for you. A big brother is someone who could have no knowledge of where you are but still find you. A big brother is someone who never leaves your side—no matter how big the fight or how far apart you are.
