Oh, brothers. Everyone has their own feelings about their younger brothers, whether it be in a good way or in a bad way. For me, my opinion on my brother has always stayed the same even till today. There was a point in time when I was in complete awe of my new baby brother, and guess what? I still am.
1. He's way too caring
I don't understand how this is even possible. I mean, I've heard of brothers who don't care for their family at all. Rather, they live life selfishly. My brother, on the other hand, cares way too much for his family. He always makes sure that we're okay. He knows that as another man in the family, he needs to make sure that everyone around him is doing okay before he worries about himself.
2. He shows his love in the cutest ways
Not only does this boy show his love by being caring, but he does little things that really make me wonder how I got so lucky to have such an amazing little brother. For example, one time I really wasn't feeling my best. I had been in my room crying all day, and I had no energy or motivation to do anything. My brother saw how I was feeling and immediately cheered me up by bringing me my favorite food and asking if I needed anything. Just his small act of love and kindness was enough to bring a smile on my face.
3. He is the comedian of the house
Although I like to think I'm the funniest person I've ever met, I have to admit that my brother is pretty funny. He'll crack jokes during dinner that will have us laughing for days. He knows how to get a smile on everyone's faces. When he notices that we look a little dull or stressed from school or work, he'll say something so funny that our stress is gone for good.
4. He's smarter than me
I don't like to admit this either but unfortunately, it's the truth. It amazes me that he is so smart, whether it be academically or socially. I'm not sure if I should be more mad at him or at my parents for passing the smart genes to him instead of me. Well, since he is my brother, I am more than happy to proudly say that my brother is smarter than me. I can't wait to see what he'll grow up to be when he's older.
5. He notices every single detail
Literally. It could be as simple as someone saying something minor during an extended conversation or even something someone told him 10 months ago. It's crazy how strong his memory is now. I'm not sure if I should look at his memory as an advantage or a disadvantage but he really does pay attention to every single detail. Whether it be my favorite restaurants, favorite YouTubers or even my favorite pair of socks, he's got it noted.
6. He's the most spoiled
Unfortunately. Before he was born, I was treated like a princess by my parents. I got everything I asked for and I absolutely love it. Then came my brother. The day he was born was the day I lost my power as royalty of the house. My parents soon started to treat him like a king. They got him everything that would make him happy. Well, in hindsight, I guess he deserves it because of everything he does for us. But mom and dad, don't forget I'm still the princess of the house.
7. He sees the world differently than I do
Every day, I gain more and more insight into the world that my brother sees. His care and love for his family are way beyond anything I've ever seen in a person so young. As a college student, I'm always stressing about assignments and exams. However, my brother knows that we can't let stress take over our lives. In fact, his presence alone is enough for me to realize that life is so short and to see the world in his eyes.
