This I believe, a sisters bond is the strongest. My sister means everything to me. In fifteen years we have grown very close together. Sometimes I feel as if I need her more than she needs me. I have a fear of her moving on in life and leaving me behind. But this year she had an English assignment to write about a special relationship and she chose me.

Reading it at the lunch table while she sat across from me, made me realize we will always be there for each other. The few tears we shared as I read it made me feel ten times closer to her. When a few other friends read her paper, I didn’t think they would understand how much it really meant to me. Most said “awh,” a few said “That’s really sweet,” but to me, it was the best thing in the world. I have never experienced a closer relationship with someone other than her. She is my best friend and most of all the most important person in my life. I know that when she graduates, goes to college, moves out, and starts a family without me, we will still be best friends.

  1. I can completely relate to this article. My sister is my best friend and she is now in college. I was managing with the idea of her leaving until the night before she left; I broke down. Although she isn’t very far away, I don’t get to see her often. However, I know she will always be there for me and vice versa. Great job 🙂

  2. My sister and brother are younger than I am. Sometimes I feel like I have an added responsibility because I am the older sister. Like on the day the electricity went out at Clements I was worried about if my brother and sister were sent home how they would get into the house. I knew they probably didn’t have one key between the two of them. I told a teacher I had to go home to check on them but the teacher thought I was kidding. I worried about them until I knew they were okay. They never have to worry about me like that. My mom always says,”Raya, you are the sister,not the mother” I know that but I still feel like I have to watch over them. I probably won’t feel that way about anyone else ever. So I agree a sister(and brother) bond is huge!

  3. I am the middle child. My older sister and I have a different bond than me and my younger sister. I can talk to my older sister about anything, but it is more like she is my best friend. My bond between myself and my little sister is a crazy one. We fight constantly, tell each other they are ugly or fat…or both, but I always look out for her. I hate to see her cry or to see her upset. I think you never realize what kind of bond you have until something like another person or college tests it.

  4. I am the youngest and the only girl in my family. I have a half brother and a full brother, both older than me. My oldest brother still lives at home and we have always been really close. He lived in Richmond for three years and that kind of drew us apart. My other brother Austin left to attend college in Kentucky in August. It has probably been the hardest thing I have had to go through, I feel like i lost my best friend and it’s a big adjustment. We still talk everyday thought so i think our bond will continue to be strong, no matter what the distance is.

  5. I can completely relate to this (but with a brother). Growing up without a dad made my brother and I closer than anyone could imagine. No one could ever replace him in my eyes. He will be the one to walk me down the isle in my wedding. I think it is very important for siblings to have a good relationship.
