Your sister may get on your nerves more than anyone else in your life, but she is also the only one you’d take a bullet for without hesitating for a second.
Having a sister carries so many amazing perks that make life easier on so many different levels. In a sister, you have a forever friend, and it’s not even close.
A sister will carry your secrets to the grave, and you will never have to worry about her giving you away.
A sister is a constant shoulder to cry on, and no matter how many times you feel like you’re being a burden, with her, that’s never the case.
And deep down, you’re profoundly grateful for having someone you can always complain to without feeling like you’re being annoying.
She will listen to you like it’s her job.
Sisterhood is one of the most beautiful things in the world. Sisters share a unique bond that goes beyond explanation.
Sometimes, it’s like you two can literally read each other’s minds.
The level of closeness and the connection you share with your sister is unparalleled—not to mention the positive effects a sister can have on you.
She makes you want to be a better person. She pushes you forward and gives you tough love when you need it.
She’ll never let you give up on yourself no matter how hard you try to push her away.
Sisters never leave. And that is the beauty of it all.
And as if that wasn’t enough, sisters share some truly incredible traits that most people around you just can’t quite grasp.
So if you’re lucky enough to have one sister (or more), appreciate the heck out of her, and tell her how much you cherish her.
She’s one of the few people in this world you’re stuck with for life. She’s the only one with whom you share these 7 remarkable traits that make your bond simply unbreakable.
1. Sisters know when something is wrong without having to be told
Your sister always knows when something’s up, and you can’t even deny it.
No matter how hard you’re trying to pretend like you’re okay and putting on your best face, she will always see right through you.
That is a blessing in disguise because she will never let you go through anything alone.
And this is something to be extremely grateful for. Having somebody who can read your mind and be there for you when you don’t even ask them to is the biggest gift you’ll ever receive.
2. Sisters can tell each other the most embarrassing things without thinking twice
Being able to share the most embarrassing and questionable details of your life with your sister is something most people dream of.
Who else would you tell (without being judged) that you just did that incredibly stupid thing with a complete stranger yesterday?
Who else would you share your creepy secrets with, without ever having to worry she’d tell on you?
With sisters, there’s no such thing as off-limits. You’d tell her if you killed someone, and she’d immediately help you hide the body.
What I’m trying to say is, she’s your safest secret-keeper, and nothing compares to that.
3. Sisters have a language of their own
Sisters can speak without actually uttering words. One look is enough to know exactly what your sister is trying to tell you.
You might even have a made up language you’ve used since you were kids or a secret handshake no one really gets!
You grew up practically attached at the hip, and this is why you can communicate with so few words, yet understand each other perfectly.
It’s a connection not many share, and that special level of communication makes having a sister absolutely priceless.
4. Sisters tell each other the tough truth when nobody else will
Your sister is the only one who’s going to tell you that you’re on your way to screwing up your life unless you start making some changes.
Your sister is the only one who will tell you that the man you think is your one is actually a complete jerk who is using you and doesn’t deserve having you.
She is the only one who’s always going to tell you exactly how it is, no matter how much it hurts.
And this is because she cannot stand seeing you ruin your life. She’d rather have you be mad at her than settle for anything less than what you deserve.
5. Sisters always know how to cheer each other up
You can be in the worst of moods, and your day couldn’t be any worse. And who do you think the only person who’s going to make you smile is? That’s right – your sister!
You’re not going to want to laugh. But she knows you better than you know yourself, and she is always going to make sure to make your day just a teeny bit brighter.
After all – that is her sisterly duty! And for you, she is always on call.
6. Sisters admire and respect each other more than anyone will ever understand
No matter how many times you fight over that T-shirt or how many times she gets under your skin, your sister is the person you admire the most in the world.
You admire her strength, her perseverance and above all, her kindness and patience.
You’ll probably never tell her this… but if you could choose to be anyone else in this world, you’d pick her.
She’s your role-model and the person you look up to with complete and utter respect. In your eyes, there is no one quite like your sissy.
7. Sisters would drop anything in a heartbeat for each other
It doesn’t matter what the problem is, and it doesn’t matter where you are.
If you call your sister in the middle of the night, clearly in distress, she is not going to think twice. She’ll be out of the house in a matter of minutes and on your way to you.
This is what sisterhood is all about. You need her – she’s there.
You call her – she picks up, no matter how busy she is. You want to give up on life – she doesn’t leave your side until she’s sure you’re doing better..
Sisters care about each other on a whole other level. If you suffer, she suffers, too.
And this is why you’ll always have a shoulder to lean on and a partner through life for as long as she’s alive.
With your sister, you’re set for life.
