My Sister is My Best Friend
Ever since I was little my sister Ellie has been my best friend. Growing up we would spend countless days together playing Barbies, Thomas the Train, Polly Pockets, and Pet Shops. I'm not gonna lie, we would get into ocasional fights because we are not prefect, but we would always make up pretty quickly and get back to playing.
I think there are 2 main reasons my sister and I are so close. The first is that my mom has always told my sister and me that we are each other's best friend. No matter what we are always going to be family. One way my mom helped build our bond was to make us sit on the couch and hold hands when we fought. This might sound dumb, but very quickly after we were seated on the couch we would start to play a game. We would see how hard we could squeeze each other's hand without my mom (who was watching us) knowing. This would make us laugh and go back to playing.
The other reason my sister and I are so close is because we spend so much time together. My family used to move a lot and my sister was the only person (close to my age) that went with me wherever we moved. When we moved to London and Texas she was the only person I knew and could play with before we made more friends. This meant that we spent a lot of time together and our bond only became stronger. We also spend a significant amount of time every summer together at my family's cabin. Our cabin is in the middle of nowhere Wisconsin and once again my sister and I only have each other to hang out with. This is where a lot of our bonding happens. Even now as we are older (both in High School) we love going up to the cabin, and spending time together.
Overall I think the reason my sister is my best friend is because we built a close bond when we were little. We no longer have all the same interests but we love spending time together. I really wish all siblings had the same bond that my sister and I do. As my mom would say, I have a built in best friend.
