Siblinghood : A Bond never broken

One of the most precious relationships is the one between siblings. It is a bond that is built on love, trust, and respect. Siblings can rely on each other when they need someone to talk to or when they need a shoulder to cry on. They are always there to support each other, no matter what.

All these come to me upon thinking of my dear sister, who is 5 years elder than me. But still, however close you are, you can never always be the same from head to toe, and that’s what makes it special. There is only one such problem with such strong bonding and that is the separation. The first ever separation was when she joined college back in India, for some, it may not feel to be such a drastic separation as this is the era of technology but for us, we have not only been residing under the same roof but also sharing every bit of joys and sorrows, this is a big hit. That’s when you realize the power of face-to-face conversation. Nevertheless, we make it up and use the best technology.

Now coming back to the topic of sisterhood. Sisters or siblings, in general, can be termed as the best of friends but if there is ever a fight then it cannot be so easily solved as each and everything they say is taken to heart. They know each other so well and are always there for them. They share everything, from their deepest secrets to their biggest dream. Sometimes they can disagree with each other, but deep down they will respect each other's point of view.

Finally, I would like to conclude with the famous quote “ a sister is a gift to the heart, a friend to the spirit, and a golden thread to the meaning of life”
Thank you and have a memorable journey with your sibling.
