“Siblings are your only enemy you can’t live without.” – Anonymous
Through the good, the bad, and the ugly–siblings are there with us. It’s important to have gratitude for the special bond that comes with siblings, and to acknowledge the importance of such a lifelong relationship.
Siblings are the beauty of life. They not only share your mother’s womb, but also create hurdles in life. They are part of the world, and they have a special place in your heart. For me, my siblings are the greatest joy and pride, and sometimes they are the most annoying ones as well. Whatever is the scenario, they are my best friends.
The sibling relationship is one of the longest lasting relationships in most people’s lives. Although this relationship is almost always a friendly one during adulthood, the childhood and adolescent relationship is usually unfriendly. Sibling rivalries during adolescence and childhood usually occur because of a strong amount of jealousy towards a younger sibling who appears to be receiving the full amount of attention from the parents. The three most important factors that impact the sibling relationship are birth order, age, and the parent-child or parent-parent relationships. However, they are important.
I have a sister, who looks like me that’s what everyone says. She is only 18 months younger than me. After some gaps, our little baby brother was born, who is now 10 years old and I named him as Sparsh, a kind gentle touch. That’s how I call him. Ever since he was born, we had so much of happiness, joy and wonders in our life. He actually touched our life with love and fortune. I actually don’t recall memories of my sister, as we were of similar age. But we personally raised our brother, so we were able to witness and experience different phase of his life. We saw him born, we saw him grow and we cared him like a mother, more like a sister. My little brother is my hope and a love of my life. He is special, but at times, we argue as well. I get childish when I be with him. That’s how I handle my brother as being a part of his world. Likewise, I motivate my sister and I do understand everything that’s going on her mind. My siblings are my strength.
They are the ones who define love, trouble, competition and forever friendship. I feel blessed being the eldest one of my family and I do love spending times with my siblings. I love you, you were there for me, you protected me, and most of all, and you loved me. We’d fight, scream, and argue, but, under it all, is a love. That only exists between us as we grow together.
Therefore, I have these crazy siblings who are there in my thick and thin, helping me in my life, hearing my stories, supporting and guiding me and constantly loving me beyond any compromises. I love them and I want to become the biggest support for them in future. I will always stand for them and be the supportive elder sister to whom they can look upon.
