If you have a big sister then you probably know these three things.
One: She’s always there for you when you can’t get a hold of your mom.
Two: She may or may not be slightly cooler than you…
Three: She’s always been the one who actually understands how to deal with your attitude.
But being a big sister is hard work, and a lot of people don’t give them the credit they need or deserve.
After all, big sisters are best friends and mom figures wrapped into one person!
But don’t take my word for it!
Here are some heartwarming reasons why big sisters rock!
She’s your first and best friend
Big sisters have literally always been there for us. For the entirety of our lives she has been there for us, no matter what. She’s been through dirty nappies, tantrums, and even ugly breakups… She was there to witness all of it!
Yet at the end of the day, she still loves you unconditionally.
You can share her wardrobe
Her clothes have always looked more flattering on you anyway!
Two wardrobes are better than one, right? Just remember to always ask before you borrow, and give them back when you’re done (preferably after you’ve washed them).
She knows how to handle anything life throws at you
Because she’s been there, done that, hell, she’s probably got the t-shirt too!
Your big sister has a better understanding of life’s instruction manual, and it’s a welcome feeling to have someone who will always be there to understand your struggles.
With her, nothing is taboo
Boundaries? What are those? You can have a deep and meaningful conversation with her while one of you is using the toilet. Awkward moments just aren’t a thing.
She’s taught you all about music, movies, and fashion trends
And since trends come and go in cycles, you can always stay ahead of the game.
She’s totally honest all the time
It’s part of the human experience to make awful decisions from time to time.
But thankfully you can always count on your sister to tell it to you like it is. She won’t beat around the bush either!
Her home is your home
When you’re so done with life and just need to get away, your big sister’s door is always open.
Big sisters are cheaper than therapy
When you need that someone to talk to, having a big sister is really helpful. She gives great advice and it costs nothing to talk to her! Take that expensive therapy sessions!
She’ll always be by your side
Your big sister is always there for you no matter what situation you’re in.
At the end of the day, there’s nothing you could do or say that would make her abandon you.
Being a big sister may be tough, but someone has to do it and I can’t think of anyone better!
I hope you enjoyed our list!
