The title of this blog might seem strange to some. Some of you really find your siblings annoying and, it is absolutely okay to feel this way. They tease you, they fight with you and many times they get on your nerves so bad that the only thing you feel like doing is getting rid of them by throwing them into a dumpster. Isn’t it? This makes us hate our siblings but, these are the reasons which should make us love them. Let me tell you 14 reasons why your sibling is your best friend.
They love you no matter what!
So, your siblings know everything about you. They know you in & out. They have seen you eat last night’s piece of pizza, sitting in the house looking like a hobo, and all the unhygienic stuff one can think of. They have seen you be jealous of people around, swear & all the ugly sides of your personality. And you know what? They still love you! No matter what you do, they have accepted you the way you are and in fact, they join you in all your shenanigans. Isn’t that the purest form of love and friendship?
They are your first Friends
The day you were born, you already had a friend waiting for you in this world. We all have heard cute stories from kids saying how they are waiting for their sibling to be born so they can play with them. If you are the younger sibling, then probably it was your elder sibling waiting for you. If you are the elder one, then you know how it feels to wait for your best friend to be born.
They got your back
Your siblings tease you, annoy you and make fun of you. But, they will not listen to a word against you. If someone else dares to speak a single word against you, they are going to flip out make that person regret every word they said.
You can do weird stuff together
Since they have been with you since the day you were born or maybe since the day they were born, they do not find you strange. They know your every habit, your pet peeves & your funny side, they still don’t find any of it strange. In fact, they have accepted you for the person you are and join you in everything the world finds weird. Remember that time in the car you started singing really loud in the ugliest possible voice and they joined you instead of asking you to stop you? Yes, that’s how it is!
Your go-to person
No matter who you fight with, you go to your sibling to complain. They might not even support you, make fun of you or tell you how wrong you were, you will still go to them. You can say anything & everything in front of them without feeling even 1 % guilt. Your sibling will never ever leave you alone in the midst of a crisis.
You have the same crazy family
All those family gatherings where your drunk uncle or overly interested in your life aunt wouldn’t have been the same without them. We all have our favorites & hated relatives. We all have family shenanigans. Your sibling will always have the same choice as you. You can gossip all the shenanigans with them without feeling guilty.
Honest to you
No matter what it is, they are honest on your face. They will always tell you the truth no matter what it is! Whenever you need a reality check, you know where you have to go.
Your travel buddy since childhood
Remember all those family trips & visits to your relatives who lived out of town? They traveled everywhere with you. There are so many travel adventure stories you have with them that no matter how many adventures you have, the travel experiences with them will always be the most remembered ones.
They always cover for you
Coming back home from a late night? Sneaking out at night? Bunked school? They are going to cover you and you do the same for them! That is how siblings understand each other.
Their clothes are your clothes
You can share clothes with your sibling! It is not even sharing! Their clothes are practically your clothes and, it doesn’t even matter if they aren’t of the same gender. You own their clothes.
You have common secrets
You have done so many mischiefs together that the list seems never-ending to the world. Even if either of you did it, the other one is equally responsible and liable to keep it as a secret, that is the rule.
Understand you like no one else
Many people in this world would claim to understand you. People are going boast about knowing everything about you but, they would never know you as your sibling does. They know when you’re sad, what makes you happy, what food you like, what tickles your bone, what triggers your anger and so on. They know every detail about you!
Will be there when everyone leaves
They will always be there! Remember the time when you felt like you didn’t have any friends or like no one really cared about you? They were still there! Remember when your friends left you for someone cooler? Your sibling didn’t leave you. They will stick around, no matter what. They will love you, even more, when you have lonely days!
Among all our friends, our strongest emotional bond is with our siblings! We act like we don’t care but we do. We may not accept it on their face but, we love our siblings more than any friend we have.
