Oh, Brother. I would never admit this to you, but you're actually pretty cool. Even when you get on my last nerve, I still wouldn't trade you for the world. You are the biggest smart butt I know, and the only person that can make me go from blood boiling mad to make me laugh. How annoying is that?? Ugh. Anyways, I could go on and on about why older brothers are great, but I will just discuss the things they teach us without them knowing.
My brother and I are 15 months apart. Yeah, my parents had their hands full for sure. As kids, we were very devious and sneaky. We were always getting into trouble at home, but it was always the others fault. I mean, it was never mine. As we grew older, we only got meaner towards each other. However, now that we are "adults" we have a greater bond than ever. I guess it's because we have matured, thank the good Lord.
All I know is that my brother has taught me a lot about life and boys. One thing about an older brother is that they always have your best interest at heart. Also, they never hold back from the truth. So, remember that if the truth hurts just to know that it is being said out of love. With that said, I have come to learn what aggravates boys the most that girls do. I have, also, learned the many things that boys do that aggravates girls.
In general, having a brother prepares/teaches you a lot about how to handle a boyfriend or any boy. As you may know, boys can be so mean and say the rudest things. However, that is the personality of most guys, and the way you respond to their stupid remarks will most likely come back as sarcastic. By showing them that their comments don't phase you allows you to have more patience with most people. As weird as it may sound, I have been able to brush off most people so easily just from growing up with a brother who has said the same things to me. I guess brothers just make it easy to do.
Overall, my brother has always said the right words without him even meaning to. If you knew my brother, you would know that his emotions never get the best of him. Deep down, he has the biggest heart. He can make friends with anybody, and literally starts joking on you before he even gets to know you.
If you ask my best friends what they think of my brother, they would say that he is annoying. See, I am not the only one who thinks so. However, it makes things so much more fun and interesting. To conclude, I am thankful for my brother and everything he has taught me. Thanks, Bro.
P.S. I hope my brother doesn't read this.
