As much as my sister annoys me sometimes (we’re actually fighting right now over a computer charger… long story, don’t ask), I truly love her and genuinely cannot imagine my life without her. In fact, I don’t want to imagine my life without her. It was bad enough when she went away to college earlier this year – I cried for hours and didn’t feel like myself for an entire week.
So I don’t want to get too sappy here, but my little sister is definitely one of my favorite people in the world. There are a lot of great things about having a sister, just like there are a lot of great things about having a brother (I would have wrote about my brother also, but Caitlin did that here!). Whether you have a sister or not, read the 10 best things about having one, explained in GIFs:
You have a built-in best friend.
If she’s younger, you get to be a role model, which is nice sometimes. If she’s older, you get a role model.
Your closet basically doubles, because you two can share clothes whenever.
You always have someone to talk to or goof around with at home.
You can drag her around with you when you’re running errands.
You have someone who will always be honest with you – sisters will tell you if they hate your outfit.
You can test out new makeup and hair things on her first.
She’s not super protective over you like a brother is when it comes to guys and stuff. In fact, she can actually help you land a dude.
You know that no matter what you guys fight about, you’ll still love and be there for each other in the end.
You have someone to hang with at boring family functions.
