When Your Sister Is Your Best Friend

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Cal Lutheran chapter.

Best friends come in all shapes and sizes, and mine just so happens to be my lovely sister. We love doing everything together, and love doing absolutely nothing. The time spent with her is something I wouldn’t trade for the world, and I will always cherish her company. When it came time to move away to college, it was hard to think that I wouldn’t be seeing her every day; I love her presence, and I didn’t want to give it up (thank God for texting and FaceTime). But I would say that the distance between us has only strengthened our relationship as sisters and as best friends. Here are some things you do when you live away from your best friend:

1.       You are constantly getting life updates every second via text.

2.       You send each other hilarious selfies all the time.

3.       Your inside jokes become 100x funnier.

4.       You fight with her one minute and are laughing the next.


5.       You tell her the 100% honest, hardest truth.

6.       She’s almost always wearing your clothes every time you see her.

7.       “Embarrassing” doesn’t happen when you’re with her.

You’re annoyed with her sometimes, but you love her always. There’s no one like your beloved sister, and the world better watch out when you’re together.
