Five Benefits of Having a Sister

Growing up with siblings is like eating set meal with multiple dishes you got variations to choose from. Growing up with a sister is like dining in a buffet with your favorite dessert. It's like having a second version of yourself that you can tag along because first you're stuck with each other and second you have no other choice.

Sisters don't only share the same parental genes, they also share childhood memories, dreams and even troubles. Here are five things that fits the bucket of benefits having a sister.

1. Being compared is inevitable
While others may take this in a negative sense, I'd like to believe that being compared with someone especially dear to you can give you the push to know yourself better, discover your similarity and individuality that can lead you to finding your own identity.

2. You have an instant best friend, maid of honor and a travel buddy
You are the best buddy she can have and she is to you. No one can best understand and knew you than the person you grew up to hate and love at the same time. Disagreement and misunderstanding maybe part of your daily routine but at the end of the day you still have each other, and that is enough.

3. You have someone you can be the real you without pretensions
Being together almost your lifetime, you have grown to see each others strength and imperfections and that is fine because she will not judge you for your wrong decisions, short temper or bad choices.

4. Having a sister makes you kinder
Having someone to share your personal space and clothes will not only stretch your patience and character, it develops tolerance, improves your social skills and enhances your ability to be a little more considerate.

5. Having an accomplice and partner in crime

But guess what's the best thing in having a younger sister -- you always have someone to do something for you. :D

“A sister can be seen as someone who is both ourselves and very much not ourselves – a special kind of double. ”
