My sister and I are very close. I don’t have any brothers so she’s all I’ve got. A lot of people hate their siblings, but I don’t. We’ve had our ups and downs, but most of the time she’s really fun to be with and she’s great company.

When I have problems, I run to my sister. When I have stories about my day or what happened in school, I tell my sister. When I need advice or tips on something, I ask my sister. I know my sister will always be there for me like I know I’ll always be there for her. Here are 6 reasons why I love my sister so much:

1. She Stands Up For Me

Whenever I get in trouble, she always tries to defend me, even though she knows she’s on the losing side sometimes. She sticks up for me and she even takes the blame sometimes, or shares it. She doesn’t let me go to battle alone if she knows I need back up. She’s my shield to protect me from my parents’ talks or sermons; and she is also my sword, ready to fight back. Even though we don’t see eye to eye on things sometimes, she still tries to stick up for me.

2. She Guides Me

Whether I need make up tips or advice on boys, she knows just what to say. She helps me get through my problems and she guides me from doing the wrong things from her past experiences. She has always been by my side when facing the challenges and obstacles ahead of us. She has taught me many valuable lessons in life and she has also influenced me to become like her, someone who is determined, intelligent and responsible. She has made me the person I am today.

3. She Supports Me

She supports me in everything. Even if she knows that what I’m doing is wrong, she still continues to support me. She supports my decisions and choices. She supports me because she knows that her support will motivate me to be the best that I can be.

4. She’s A Pain In The Ass

My sister and I fight. A lot. We argue about almost everything, like when I borrow her clothes when she needs it or if she can’t find her make up that I used last. I get mad at her when her music is too loud and I need to study. She gets mad at me when I answer back and don’t agree with her on things when she’s in a bad mood. My sister can be really annoying and cranky sometimes, well most of the time. She’ll ramble on about things I don’t care about, and I just want her to shut up. But we still try to put up with each other. We may fight about a lot of things, but I love her anyways.

5. She Cares For Me

She always wants to know how my day is going. She wants to know how I feel about certain things and she likes being updated about me. She protects me and she always wants to stay on my good side. She’s thoughtful and she always asks me what I need so she can provide them. She may not show it at times, but I know she looks out for me and tries to keep me happy. She always wants what’s best for me.

6 She’s My Best Friend

We tell each other everything. She knows me inside out since she has literally known me her whole life. She has always been there for me, through good times and bad. She is honest with what she says, even if it hurts sometimes. I can trust her with my deepest darkest secrets and she is always there to listen to everything I have to say. She respects what I do and she doesn’t judge. But most importantly, she accepts me. She accepts my flaws and accepts me for who I am. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
