Being a big sister, especially the eldest, feels like a big responsibility.
You may fight and bicker with them, but siblings are one of the greatest blessings in life.
As a big sister…
Sometimes you feel that their pain is your pain and their struggles are your struggles and you want them to just be happy. You want to protect them from the world and everything bad that’s in it. You don’t want them to make the same mistakes that you did. You don’t want them to see the pain that you’ve seen.
But it’s also important to remember that everyone has difficulties that they need to face themselves, you can’t take all the bad out of their life. You have to understand that they need to make their own mistakes and learn from them, they need to face their own obstacles and grow from them. You can’t live their life for them, they need to live their own life, no one can do that for them. And in life there’s both good and bad.
They’ll be okay, you don’t need to fix everything all the time, watch them from where you are and be there when they need you.
