What Would Happen If My Sister Didn't Exist?

16 Things That Would Happen If My Sister Didn't Exist

You’re someone I’m grateful for every single day, sis.


Sisters are annoying. In fact, there are many days we argue. Yet, more days than not, my sister is my best friend. I get to go through life with her right by my side. Through all the fights about clothes, the stealing of my dry shampoo, and all the other times you simply get on my nerves, I love you. I never want to experience life without you, because these things will happen.

1. There would be no one to hype up

When good things happen, you’re the first I tell. When good things happen to you, I’m the first to hype you up. I’m so proud of everything you do. You are wonderful and perfect.

2. The house would be quiet 

There would be no guitar strings strumming along to Aerosmith. There would be no laughter echoing in the hallways or singing in the bathroom. It would be too quiet without you. I would rather have us bickering.

3. The bathroom would be an absolute disaster

Let’s admit it, one of us is the “clean freak”

4. There would be no one to steal my food

Yes, those are my leftovers in the fridge. Yes, that's my ice cream.

5. I wouldn’t have grown up with my best friend

Hannah Porter

Imagine living in the same house as your best friend for your whole childhood and young adulthood (and possibly adulthood too if I don't get my life together).

6. There wouldn’t be any 2 a.m. conversations

You're there for the 2 a.m. conversations when I'm upset. You're the one I reach out to when I'm stressed (or the one I take out my stress on, my bad).

7. There would be no one to blast music with in the car


You're my forever favorite car-singing partner.

8. There would be no random check-ins. 

Thank you for just checking up, even if I get angry. I appreciate you.

9. There would be no one trying to tell us apart.

Hannah Porter

"OMG are you, twins?!" "Oh, I thought you were your sister.." and then you get the "Wait...you're related?".

We are not twins. We may look alike, but we are not twins.

10. I would probably have all my clothes in my own room.


My shirt is probably in your hamper.

11. Also, I wouldn’t have a second closet (AKA your room)

Your shirt is also probably in my hamper (or floor).

12. There wouldn’t be anyone to secretly text at parties


Because when shit goes down, we shit talk.

13. There wouldn’t be anyone to freak out with me when something good happens

You are always there to celebrate with me. You are always the first to smile and congratulate me. You are my biggest cheerleader and I will always be yours. For every accomplishment and for every milestone, I will be there.

14. There would be no food dates

Hannah Porter

You're always the one to suggest food with me (not complaining).

15. I wouldn’t have my own personal photographer (or hair stylist, or makeup artist, or event planner) 

I take for granted how much you do.

16. There would be no you, and that is something I honestly couldn’t live without.

Cary Porter

My sister is my best friend. Even though it might not seem like it some days, she always will be. I still check to see if you got home at night. I still gossip about boys with you, even though we are way past 16 years old. You will be my maid of honor when I get married, and I will be your first drunken speech at yours. My children will have the absolute best aunt in the world. Thank you, for being you. I never want to experience what life would be without you.

10 Things I Hope My Little Sister Knows

Love you, little sis.


Hey little one,

First of all, thank you. Thank you for laughing at my cheesy jokes, for singing your heart out in the car with me, and for never failing to make me smile. I have loved you for your whole life, and, as your big sister, I hope I was able to teach you a few things, to let you in on a few secrets. This is to you. Here are a few things I hope you know and don't ever forget.

1.You are so, so incredibly loved.

Mom and dad love you more than you know, I love you like you wouldn't believe, and you have a God in Heaven who loves you more than you could ever possibly imagine. No matter what, you are always and forever loved. You have so much adoration and support surrounding you, please don't ever be afraid to fall.

2. I love you, but stop getting taller.

You are my little sister. People are starting to think it's the other way around. I can't introduce you as my “little" sister if you're taller than me.

3. Learn from my mistakes.

It is no secret that I am far from perfect. I have made mistakes, and I pray that I am always brave enough to share them with you, so that you can learn from them. I hope that you can see my mistakes as stepping stones, placed out over the mess, that you might bypass some of the obstacles I've had to face.

4. He's cute. But you are still way too young.

I don't care if you're 15 now, you will always be my baby sis. I'm not sure exactly how long it will take for me to be OK with you having a boyfriend, but today is definitely not that day.

5. I get jealous of you. All. The. Time.

You're an awesome athlete, and I am so proud of you. But so help me if you break another one of my school records.

6. You will always have me in your corner.

I will always be your biggest advocate, and I won't ever let you stand alone. I will stand up for you until the end of time. Never doubt that I am on your side.

7. You are exceptionally good at irritating me.

You know every single pet peeve of mine, and you know the perfect ways to drive me crazy. But you are also exceptionally good at making me laugh.

8. You are beautiful.

Please, please, please hear me when I say this: You are gorgeous. You are fearfully and wonderfully made, and your smile and spark light up a room. You will hear things that will hurt, and you will be told lies designed to break you down. Please try your hardest not to ever listen to the pressures of today. Your uniqueness makes you special. You are you, and that is beautiful.

9. I am always, no matter what, without a shadow of a doubt, here for you.

I may be away from home now, but I will never stop being on-call for you. Call me at 3 a.m., text me in the middle of the day. Come to me with your fears and with your hopes. Come to me in your happiest moments, so that I can laugh with you, and come to me in your saddest moments so that I might wipe your tears away. I will never stop standing behind you with open arms.

10. Even when I don't say it, I love you more than anything.

Sometimes we argue. Sometimes we don't get along, and sometimes I am not the sister you deserve. But please know that I love you more than anything. You inspire me constantly, I couldn't possibly be more proud. I love you little sis.

9 Things You Hear Growing Up As An Only Child

No, I don't get lonely.


Having no siblings definitely has its ups and downs, but I wouldn't have it any other way! Most people jump to the conclusion that you're spoiled or were an accident since your parents didn't have other kids, but being an only child is actually amazing. While my parents didn't give me every single thing I wanted, they taught me lots and I did earn everything I got.

1. Don't you get lonely?

Well, no, I do have friends. It also helped growing up when technology wasn't quite exactly where it is today. Everyone would play outside or with each other as opposed to behind a screen, and it kept everyone more connected. It also taught me that it's okay to spend time alone and it can actually be refreshing.

2. Do you wish you had siblings?

Occasionally growing up, the thought crossed my mind, but I never dreaded not having siblings.

3. Do you get everything you want?

Haha! Not even close!

4. You must be spoiled

With love, definitely. I might have gotten more than if I were to have a sister or brother, but my parents definitely taught me how to work for what I want.

5. Why didn't your parents want more kids?

When you do it right the first time, why would you need to have more? It just isn't what my parents wanted, but it worked out just fine.

6. Are your parents stricter since there are no other children to focus on?

I wouldn't say that fact alone makes a parent more or less strict. Yes, there were more eyes and focus on me, but my parents still allowed me to do things with friends and have freedoms.

7. What's it like being an only child?

I wouldn't consider it anything special. It was just how I grew up and I think I had a pretty good childhood.

8. You must not like to share

You're right, I don't. Who does? But it doesn't mean I can't or don't know how to.

9. Are you close with your parents?

Absolutely, and I love it!
