There’s nothing quite like the bond between sisters. I only have a brother, so I can’t completely relate, but my mom and her sister have been BFFs their whole lives, and I can’t lie, I’m a bit jealous. I wish I had an older sister to run to for advice when my crush doesn’t like me back, or to offer comfort when a relationship goes sour. But since I don’t have a sis of my own, I wanted to find another way to get some breakup advice from older sisters, so I talked to these women who have serious wisdom to share.
The great thing about having a sister to lean on after a breakup is that she’ll always tell it to you just like it is. Sisters know that sugar-coating a situation never helps anyone in the long run, so they’re not afraid to lay it all out there. After all, you’re stuck with them whether you want to hear their advice or not! In the throes of an awful breakup, an older sister will offer you a listening ear and also a dose of reality. She’s been through it all, and she knows that while breakups suck, there’s a whole lot of joy in your future if you know where to look. Trust me — you don’t want to miss these wise words.
