10 Reasons You Should Be Grateful For Your Big Sister


Having a big sister is amazing. They are like your parents, but cooler. She can show great care towards you, but without being too over-protective.

You can have your own innocent little secrets that you keep away from your parents.You can chat with your big sister about guys (or girls) and wake her up in the middle of the night for advice. If you enjoy music or movies, you can dance together to your favorite tunes or watch the Oscars together and comment on your best actor picks. You can hang out with her and her friends and expand your social network because of that. What’s not to love about having an older sister?

Here are 10 other reasons why you should say ‘thank you’ more often to your big sister:

Your big sister knows what you’re capable of accomplishing. 

Perhaps there is no one out there that knows you better than your big sister. That can be scary (that someone knows you so well), but she also knows what you can achieve and makes sure she lets you know whenever she has the chance to.

Your big sister always honest with you.

She doesn’t lie to you because she doesn’t have to. And then, you could tell immediately if there’s something up.

Your big sister knows what it’s like to deal with your parents.

She’s been there. She was also a teenager once so she can ease the path for you.

Your big sister your own personal therapist.

When you need to talk to someone, you know you can count on her. Her opinions matter to you.

Her closet is your closet.

Assuming you are roughly the same size and height, you can borrow clothes from her on any occasion. Just make sure you don’t cause a mess in her closet!

Thanks to her, you know all about the cool stuff.

She can always fill you in about recent updates in the entertainment world or let you know about the fresh pubs in town.

There are no boundaries between you.

Even if there is a physical distance between you two, you will never feel that your sister is far away. Of course, social media makes it easier to stay in touch.

Her home is always open.

That or you actually own the keys to her place, in which case she can lock the door. But it’s true: her casa is tua casa. You’re always welcome in her home if you need a place to crash or if you just want to drop by for a visit.

Your big sister will always be your go-to gal.

Again, if you need support, whether it’s emotional or financial, you know you can always count on her.

Most importantly, she loves you unconditionally.

She is your family, but there’s a lot more than blood or genetics that bond you. It’s the feeling that someone’s always there looking out for you. So give her a warm hug today and a big ‘thanks’.
