As the name itself suggests, there’s no greater joy than having a sibling upon whom you can go to. Without them being judging you for who you are or what you have done! Having a sibling is no less than the blessings of God. No matter what, they are the only ones who have lived our journey very closely and has also undergone all the pleasures and sorrows of our life.
It’s something like “If you cry, I cry and if you fall, I will laugh my heart out”. This sweet, spicy and tangy bond can take you to roller-coaster rides of life as well as also keep you grounded when you are not. Near or far apart, siblings have tied knots of the heart. Parents might be worried about their children fighting with each other at this stage, but what they shall know is, everything is part of life and this shall pass too. As they grow up, they will start facing realities of life and eventually learn who is going to stand by their side, smiling and laughing.
Why is their bond the unique one?
Innumerable reasons that can’t be put to words, but I choose to pick a few and highlight how beautifully thread this bond is:
When one goes wrong, the other one covers him/her out, taking all the blame on oneself and protecting them like their soul. Though, they act like our parents scolding for what we did. Parents often don’t know what habits their children have adapted, but siblings know that better. And at that time, they are the ones who step in teaching the unforgettable lessons of life. Lessons that stay with children for a lifetime, not because they were wrong but because their other half taught them so.
2. Siblings mark the most memorable moments of life
Be it high or lows of life, siblings mark the happiest moments by just being in it with their crazy attitude. Remarkable memories are ones which are lived with them. They take us to have a ride on the moon and see the shine stars have. Nothing can ever be dull with them around. Yes, they fight a lot but at last, they are the only ones who also care a lot. Wearing our clothes without asking us, pick-pocketing our smartphones just to make fun, are all the happiest and joyous experiences of life.
You have a crooked nose and pig-like a face! These tantrums and fun are what we live for. Things what we can never experience with our parents or anyone else, our other half just fulfill them by being in it. Siblings love us as we are but won’t ever express it to us on our face. Go on a trip for 5 days and your cell phone and emails will be loaded with tonnes of messages and missing you, kind of gifs and emojis.
4. Siblings share intuitive feelings
Once you are hurt and act like you are not, you can never fool your best friend. Siblings are the best of our friends, family and better half. Vibes that they share is unmatchable and inexpressible. They can break bones for you and shower you with ice-creams and chocolates to cheer you up and at other times also sense well in advance any danger coming your way.
In case you fail, don’t worry you have that one person to support you throughout your life. And the best thing is they will never stop mocking you!
It is most comforting when you sit in the same room with your brother and sister, in pure silence, yet you both know how the other one is feeling.
