I grew up with two sisters. As kids, we had our share of squabbles and catty fights, just like any other siblings. However, I didn't feel that our parents ever favored one over the other, or interfered in our quarrels. They let us settle our own matters. I always found that when tempers flared, my younger sister would say something cute and make us all laugh. Our quarrels never lasted for more than a day, often lasting only for minutes.

Brothers Are Different From Sisters

As a mother of two boys, I see a different type of relationship between my two sons. Boys squabble over different issues than girls. The way two brothers bond with each other is different from the way sisters bond.

I watched my sisters grow up into beautiful, capable, and confident women. My overprotective older sister grew up to be cautious and risk-averse. She made calculated moves, ensuring that she protected her family at every turn. My younger sister went about her business with an air of nonchalance, seeking new adventures even at great personal risk. She achieved her ambitions early in life, which fueled her aspirations. I often wonder how, despite our common childhood experiences, we developed different skills and perspectives.

Your Sister and You Have a Shared Childhood

Many sisters bond over shared childhood experiences, and how these experiences impacted their life. Your sister has shared your journey of life during childhood, the time when personalities get formed. Your sister has seen you in your most vulnerable moments. She knows your nature inside out. She understands you even better than you understand yourself. Who better than your sister to confide your darkest secrets?

Sisters Hold the Mirror up to Your Face

Need a reality check? Go to your sister. She will mince no words when she has to tell you that you are a boneheaded egomaniac. However, you can rest assured that she is on your side, and she means well. Your arguments with your sister will enable you to think through your decision and make the right move.

Sisters Can Shield You From the World

The best thing about sisters is that they give you room to make your own mistakes. While your sister may still dangle the threat of squealing to your mother, she will help you when you need her the most. She will protect her family honor by defending you against your enemies.

What Makes Sisters Special

Sisters are God's greatest blessings. You are lucky if you have a sister. Make your relationship special by sharing intimate childhood experiences with your sister. Walk down memory lane as you recount your good and bad childhood memories. Share your views about each other, and get a fresh perspective about yourself. Build an everlasting bond of friendship with these sister quotes. Cherish this bond of sibling love and make your life complete.
