Recently i came across an article entitled 20 reasons you should be thankful to your big sister or something like that
I didnt finish reading the articles because, just reading half of it suddenly i thought that, hey! why dont i just write reasons why I should be thankful to MY big sister
So, here they are
You can count on her, anytime, seriously
Being 4 years apart according to age sometimes makes it hard for my sister to admit she is -teen going -ty. When referring to our miscellaneous younger siblings, she would say that i’m their sister, i should be responsible on them. But still, when the time comes, when you were really at the end of the road, be it about money, love, career or anything, you can always count on her to help you around.
She is your ‘try and error’ in doing something.
It is hard to say something that never been said in your family to your parents. Like proposing to your parents about marriage....
So, all you have to do is watch and learn how she started the topic. if it doesnt work, then you would have to make a plan B. of course, this doesnt work if you want to get married before her.
You never have to pay the all the bills.
Sometimes,my sister and i will treat the smaller people in our family to a higher grade restaurant,jjanggg!!
Of course before leaving we had already withdrawed some notes so that when the menu came we were like ordering like a king and pay like a boss. Ahah, 50-50 pay la, i pay all alone mana aci,you are the big sister maa.
Your things are mine too,my things if you want to use them, i will have to consider first.
My clothes that were complimented on, 90% were actually hers. My things she wouldnt use, not because i will consider first, but my things just arent appealing to her -_-
She will listen to you without judging.
I once asked my friend, who do you think i can be open up to without being judge? She gave some answers but when she mentioned, your sister?
Indeed, she is the one
The one who knows the family jokes
On phone sometimes this dialogue happened;
Sister: wai? Lay hui pin na?
Me: wai? Lay ho ma?
Sister; mo ka cho wa lay, ngo tek lay ya
Me: lay sun tek ngo? Waihh mo ka chow wa lay
Sister: hello? Where are you?
Me: hello? How are you?
Sister: you are so bad, im gonna kick you
Me: you want to kick me? Wahh you are so bad
Haha, then we laughed. Okay you wouldnt get this joke, of course, it is a family joke, outsiders wouldnt understand.
When family problems came, you both discuss as if it is a world problem. But she is the one you turn into after all.
Any family has their own ups and downs. So do mine. But i am relieved because i know i can talk to her and we will try to handle this together. You feel the burden of having to take care of the thing, but she is there too.
Dilemma for most third member of the siblings i guess.
When visiting far far away relatives, only god knows how hard for you to even look them in the eyes and say hello or something. Shy? Not sure, i think maybe we just really dont know how to reach to the not-really-close-people, if you know what i mean.
Fortunately, she is there, starting all the conversations, asking, laughing, help in serving etc, and me, wahh life is saved for 100 years ;)
So, what do you think of your big brother/sister?
They bullied you? They sure did, welcome to the younger siblings club :D
