18 Things You Can Only Understand If You Have a Sister

Having a sister is a unique experience, regardless of whether you’re the youngest or the oldest — the adorable little sister or the wise, mature older one. You’re born with a built-in best friend, and there’s nobody that you’re closer to growing up… for better or worse! Your sister can be your biggest pain in the butt, or your best ally when things get tough, and there’s nothing sweeter than having someone who always has your back and understands you in ways that no one else ever possibly could. A sisterly bond is something that can be complicated and emotional, but also so rewarding and special.
