Having an elder sister is a blessing. They not only care about their younger siblings but also inspire them as well.
We look forward to her for guidance and advice. She has been our friend from the moment we were born, who criticises us all the time but also protects us fiercely. At the same time, she will drive you up the wall and make you weep like a toddler.
These are the reasons why your elder sister is one of the most valuable people in your life:
1. You Can Trust Her Blindly and She Is Loyal to You
She was there when you were born, she saw you go through every phase of life – all the good, bad and ugly. When you took your first steps, when you entered your pubescent phase, when you got your heart broken. However, most importantly she held your hand through these and advised you what to do.
2. You Practically Had the Same Closet
Regardless of how angry she gets when you wear her clothes, but she allows you to share. You guys pretty much have the same wardrobe.
3. She Is a pro at Dealing with the Family and Will Help You at It
Whatever problem you face, your sister is the first person who knows about it. She is your saviour and your advisor.
She can help you in dealing with the rest of the family members. She gives you proper strategies and tells you how to deal with them. You don’t have to worry that she will let your secrets out. There is no one who would understand better.
4. You Can Speak to Her About ‘Anything’ Under the Sun
There are no boundaries between you and your elder sister. You don’t have to make an image in front of her or impress her. You can be relaxed and yourself in front of her. You can speak about any matter with or discuss anything. There are no privacy concepts, when you want to share your feelings, she will be there.
5. She Will Put up with You Way More Than Anyone Else
You practically know each other inside out! From nature to habits, be it horrible ones (Yes, like how dirty you are). How you leave your dishes where they are and never bother cleaning the bathroom.
6. Big Sister Will Be Your Inspiration – with Music, Fashion and a Lot More
Your sister wants you to have a good personality. She will make sure you stay away from lame boybands and shitty music. She will help you develop a better taste in clothes and have a proper fashion sense, as she is more experienced than you are.
7. No Putting Things in a ‘Subtle’ Way
She will not sugar coat anything with you, she will give it to you the way it is. She will confront you when needed, and be truthful without any bullshit. She is the one who gives you a reality check.
8. You Never Feel Like You Are Not Welcome
Your elder sister will always find time for you. She will be there whenever you need her. When you don’t feel like being around anyone, she is one person you want by your side.
9. She Knows What Your Strengths and Weaknesses Are
Regardless of how much you doubt yourself, or sometimes are down in the dumps- she knows you so well that she knows when to reassure you and be you support and pillar of strength.
10. She has the best things to say to you
She knows exactly what to say to you, she knows how to communicate with you as you have deeper connection with you. Her magic will help you resolve all your problems. During your darkest hours, she will be your sunshine.
11. You Can Depend on Her
She will never leave you when you need her the most. It doesn’t matter what the nature of the problem is. She will hold your hand no matter what it is and take time out for you. When you have no one, she is the only one you have.
