A lot of my friends seems to have relationships with their sisters that are strained, have lots of ups and downs, or are not bad, but not really worth gushing about. None of this describes my relationship with my sister at all. She is my best friend in the world, and there isn’t a single person who can compete for that title.

I have close friends, but ultimately the friendships I have cultivated with them just aren’t quite like the one I have with my sister. Whenever I have excited or disappointing news, have a thought I think is humorous, or simply need to vent, my sister is the first person I talk to. I know from what she has said, that she does the same thing with me. And I also feel like it doesn’t matter how silly and bizarre I am around her, she knows that is part of who I am and has no problem accepting it.

In some ways I am very lucky to have a sister who is also my best friend. We are adults now, but it’s more difficult to fall out of contact or not ever see her since she is part of my family than it is with other friends. Still, even though I’m only two and a half years older than she is, there is really no escaping that I am her “big sister.” This sometimes feels like a lot of pressure because I feel like she still looks up to me. It also means I sometimes hide things from her that I am ashamed about. While this can be a bit frustrating, I suppose it also gives me good motivation for being the best person I can be.
