15 Reasons Sisters Are the Best ...


I'm an only child, so you might be thinking there's no way I could know if sisters are the best.

Really, though, I know lots about sisters.

I always wanted one growing up, because sisters are often like built in best friends.

Plus, as an adult, I've created a really great family of friends and am very lucky to have several women I view as my sisters.

I know it's not the same, I know that every sister relationship is different, and I know things aren't always rosy, but that's true of everything.

In general, sisters are pretty damn awesome.

1. They're Teachers

They're Teachers

Sisters are the best in general, but if you have an older sister, you have a great teacher.

Actually, the two of you will teach each other new things your whole lives, especially if you're close.

You might not always listen to each other's advice, but you share it and hope that it will someday help.

2. They're Always Honest

They're Always Honest

Your sister will always tell you the truth, probably no matter how you get along.

She's not going to pull punches but neither will she let you walk out of the house looking like a fashion victim or date the high school Lothario known for breaking hearts.

3. You Can Always Vent to Each Other

You Can Always Vent to Each Other

Whatever you're going through, you can talk to each other.3

You can complain about the things you have in common, like your school teachers, your hometown, your parents, or an in-law, or you can vent about the new things you're going through.

When you've had a bad day or you're dealing with a difficult situation, your sister is there to listen.

She'll let you yell, cry, and curse, and you'll always do the same for her.

4. You've Got History Together

You've Got History Together

You know each other's most embarrassing stories.

You share deep, shameful secrets, like the time you streaked through the house when Santa came to visit or when she had that awful β€œaccident” at the water park.

You've shared family triumphs and tragedies, you've seen pets go over the rainbow bridge, you've listened to your grandfather's stories a million times.

Sisters share even the things they don't remember.
