Although sisters can sometimes drive you crazy for getting all up in your business or calling you out for being a bad girl, you should consider yourself pretty darn lucky that you even have one. That’s because sisters keep you on your toes and make life more interesting!
A sister is your cheerleader when you’re feeling blue, your best friend when you want to talk smack, and your mama bear when you need protecting. Studies have even shown that having a sister can make you happier and more well-adjusted than people who grew up with only brothers.
Having a sister is truly a gift, and here are 35 reasons why sisters totally rule!
And guess what else? She’s also the reason why you’re so ambitious! Sisters who develop a close-knit bond also encourage each other to reach their full potential.
However, a study from Ohio State University shows that having siblings means that you have better odds of staying married! It turns out that having a sister makes you less self-centered and more mature as an adult, which of course are qualities that can help you weather the ups and downs of any relationship.
Because mom and dad have already had plenty of practice punishing your sister, they know what works and what doesn’t. That means the parental units are more lenient when you stay out past curfew, stumble through the front door drunk as a hobo, or dye your hair (and the bathroom walls) goth purple.
She understands that whatever hate you’re spewing is just your way of managing stress, and she won’t take it personally….as long as you don’t think the hole she cut in the crotch of your yoga pants is “personal.”
Thanks to your sister, you now have the wherewithal to stand your ground and spit dragon fire whenever you come up against a wall of stubborn bullies in the boardroom.
In fact, if it wasn’t for your older sister, you’d still probably think that Anna’s “foot size doesn’t matter” quip in Frozen was about feet!
Without saying a single word, an exchange of knowing glances between you and your sis can say anything from “touch it and die, betch” to “please pretend to be my girlfriend so I can get away from this horny creep at the bar.”
She also teaches you about life lessons through her own experiences, like the painful divorce and custody battle she endured, or the DUI she got after a bender in college.
