Saying you're #blessed with a sister may very well translate to you having a brutally honest, adventure-loving best friend in your gene pool. No diving, please.
Our parents don't get it right all of the time, but if you have an amazing relationship with your sister, she'll always be the one thing, besides you, they did just right.
Womanhood is not easy, but to have a relentless partner in crime who actually shares the same DNA gives you a little extra armor to combat whatever drama comes your way.
Now, this isn't written in some ancient book for sisters, but it's your job to make your own sister-worthy memories.
Here are a few life-changing things sisters need to experience together before they reach their quarter-life crisis.
1. Go To Las Vegas Together
OK, Sin City is great for any group of solid women, but your sister is the perfect Vegas partner because she'll always have your back.
You both should, by now, know each other's limits, so you'll keep that in mind while pushing each other's fun triggers the entire time.
Can you say "hype girl?"
2. Squash Any Childhood Beef
You may have fought over boys, stolen each other's dolls, and had screaming arguments over who deserved the TV remote more back when you were kids.
Hashing out any childhood tiffs will make your relationship so much stronger, and it will give you both a good laugh, because it was probably over nonsense, anyways.
3. Talk To Your Parents About Their Expectations For You Two
Your parents, unfortunately, aren't going to be around forever. Making some time to sit down with them and your sister to talk about life and what they envision for the two of you will truly put your sisterhood into perspective.
You will be there to remind one another if either of you continuously falls short of expectations. You'll also dedicate yourself to being a reinforcing factor in the other's lives because Mama didn't raise no punks.
4. Be Each Other's Wingwoman At Least Once
Again, your sister knows you best. This means she has been through the heartbreaks, jerks, and lost causes. Because she knows what you're looking for, there isn't a better wingwoman than her.
Think of her as your gatekeeper. She'll help you weed out the ones not worth your time, and the ones who need your undivided attention.
5. Get A Tattoo Together
Henna or something else not-so-permanent is also OK. But, if you do decide to get a real tattoo at the same time, even if they aren't the same thing, it's an emotional, incredible experience.
The tattoo symbolizes the permanence of your sisterhood. No matter how far you end up from each other, just like the tattoo, you're both always with each other.
For real though, someone cue the violins.
Whether you're the older or younger sister, your role is important in what makes up the genuine beauty of sisterhood. Find your sister, and hug her ASAP.
