12 Times You Fight With Your Sister And ALMOST Don't Forgive Her

12 Struggles Every Girl With A Sister Has To Endure, Time And Time Again

Sister: a designated best friend, and mortal enemy.


By "sister" I don't mean ~sorority sister~ or a friend that is so close you would consider them as a sister. No. By "sister" I mean that person that you are forced to live with and encouraged to love. This could be an adopted, step, half or full sister. As long as it is someone that is your actual family. And like most family, you usually love them (most of the time). But there are some trying times that every girl who has a sister is forced to deal with at least once.

So, whether you consider your sister your best friend, mortal enemy, or both, these are some experiences that most sisters have to endure.

1. They steal EVERYTHING

I didn't have to struggle with this problem very much as a child because I was extremely chubby and my sister has always been skinny (and I wore lime-green crocs while she wore not-hideous clothing) but now that I've gotten older, it's like she thinks my clothing is "our" clothing. *eye roll* I should've stuck with the green crocs.

2. Sharing a room meant sharing a life

Being on top bunk seemed cool and all until you had to break your feet going up and down the ladder.

3. They think they know what's best

I had to put at least one vine reference in here.

4. You compete with each other over everything

Grades, popularity, who can hold their breath the longest, your parent's affection. You know, the usual.

5. You constantly fight

It's either mental warfare or full-on MMA fighting.

6. But still, you love each other

You kind of have to, but you also kind of want to.

7. People either always point out how alike or different you are

"You two look so much alike!!"

wow...it's almost like were ~sisters~

8. You need each other to survive family events

Especially the extended family that you barely have any memory of and nothing to talk about with.

9. You always give each other fashion advice

It was like full-on Project Runway at times.

10. Your sister's friends become your friends

11. You know everything about each other

And then use this information against each other.

12. You are each other's best friends, but also mortal enemies

Like most family, it's a love/hate relationship.

To The Dad Who Didn't Want Me, It's Mutual Now

Thank you for leaving me because I am happy.

Thank you, for leaving me.

Thank you, for leaving me when I was little.

Thank you, for not putting me through the pain of watching you leave.

Thank you, for leaving me with the best mother a daughter could ask for.

I no longer resent you. I no longer feel anger towards you. I wondered for so long who I was. I thought that because I didn't know half of my blood that I was somehow missing something. I thought that who you were defined me. I was wrong. I am my own person. I am strong and capable and you have nothing to do with that. So thank you for leaving me.

In my most vulnerable of times, I struggled with the fact that you didn't want me. You could have watched me grow into the person that I have become, but you didn't. You had a choice to be in my life. I thought that the fact that my own father didn't want me spoke to my own worth. I was wrong. I am so worthy. I am deserving, and you have nothing to do with that. So thank you for leaving me.

You have missed so much. From my first dance to my first day of college, and you'll continue to miss everything. You won't see me graduate, you won't walk me down the aisle, and you won't get to see me follow my dreams. You'll never get that back, but I don't care anymore. What I have been through, and the struggles that I have faced have brought me to where I am today, and I can't complain. I go to a beautiful school, I have the best of friends, I have an amazing family, and that's all I really need.

Whoever you are, I hope you read this. I hope you understand that you have missed out on one of the best opportunities in your life. I could've been your daughter. I could have been your little girl. Now I am neither, nor will I ever be.

So thank you for leaving me because I am happy. I understand my self-worth, and I understand that you don't define me. You have made me stronger. You have helped make me who I am without even knowing it.

So, thank you for leaving me.

When You Are The Youngest Of 6 Kids

Having five older siblings is the greatest blessing I could have ever asked for. I get best friends for life.


I am probably one of the luckiest people on the planet because I have so many brothers and sisters. I have three brothers and two sisters. I'm the youngest of the six, so I have had a pretty interesting experience growing up with a big family.

My oldest brother is ten years older than me. All of my siblings were born in the 90s and I wasn't, but I wanted to fit in with them. I had to make sure I watched the same TV shows and movies that they did so I could relate to them. I tried to play the same games that they played, such as SEGA and Nintendo. I was not very good at any of them, but I was just happy to be with my siblings.

Going to school was always interesting because I always had a teacher that one or more of my siblings already had. Every year in school from 1st grade to 12th grade, I always heard, "Oh, I had a few of your siblings." Then, for the rest of the year, my teachers would slip up every once in a while and call me one of my sisters' names. I understood, though, because all of us look alike, so I would just go along with it and act like that was my name.

With my sisters, the three of us look like triplets, even though we are years apart. I get called Jess or Jen a lot by my parents. By process of elimination, they eventually figure out my name. I'm used to it as I respond to anyone who calls me by one of my sister's names.

Being the youngest, I get to see all my brothers and sisters accomplish many things. I watch what they do and learn from it. The problem for me has always been that all of my siblings are brilliant. I have always had to live up to the standards that my siblings set. It hasn't always been easy.

It can be frustrating because anyone that knows my brothers and sisters will automatically compare me to them in terms of intelligence. For example, I took AP Statistics in high school. I knew my teacher had a few of my siblings who were very bright and did well in that class. My teacher probably thought I was an idiot because I struggled in that class.

I have to try and prove to people that I am my own person and that I am just related to really smart people.

I never needed to worry about friends at school because, at the end of the day, I always had my five best friends at home. When we were all younger, we had our own sleepovers and parties, and we played games all the time.

Whenever I needed help with homework, I had my own free tutors at home who were willing to help me understand algebra and biology. Even in college, I still go to them when I need help with an assignment.

They took care of me when I was younger whenever my parents were working. I had my other five parents who were ready to take care of me. They still take care of me today.

Now that I am an adult, I have had to start doing things for myself. It's kind of weird.

I always had everyone else do everything for me or with me. If I needed to go somewhere, they were my chauffeurs. If we went out to eat somewhere, they paid, but now I can drive myself around and pay for things with my own money.

At the end of the day, I have five best friends for life. For me, that is all I need.
