"When mom and dad don't understand, a sister always will."


Everything seems to be a struggle at the moment. Life's problems seem to be weighing me down. Between keeping up with my work at school as well as having to actually go to school, I am mentally, emotionally and physically drained. The only thing that seems to be blossoming in my life is my relationship with my two sisters. Over the past couple of days, while my parents were away, I have spent much of my little free time with my siblings. I have only realized now how important it is to have a good relationship with them and how much it benefits me personally. Previously I always took having two sisters for granted and often cursed it too, but now I am finally grateful.


The eldest of the three girls in my family, Mix, is less than a month away from turning eighteen which mind boggles me every time I think about it. Only in recent time have we really started getting close. Mix has been through a rather long rough patch for most of her teen years, where she was suffered from depression. This didn't only affect her but the rest of the family too. It affected me quite badly because as an adolescent girl there is nothing you want more than your older sister's guidance and approvals. I got the cold shoulder for at least three years. This was difficult because I was there, all the time, waiting patiently for her to want me, for her to need me. Eventually she got help and her transformation is still in process. We have become really close and I am not entirely sure what I am going to do next year when she leaves to England. I have learned a lot from her over the good years as well as the bad years. Mix is a beautiful person, inside and out, and I am so lucky to be related to someone like her.


Livs is the youngster in the family. So yes, that does leave me in the middle! Livs has always been a loving child with dreams of saving all the black children in Africa and buying all the puppies and kittens she possibly could. Things are starting to change as she grows up though. She began her high school career about a month ago. With the status comes a new maturity. I have come to realize that Livs looks up to me, which makes me feel good to be honest. She makes me feel like I serve a purpose in my life and she makes me want to be a better person. I love her and I only want the best for her in the future, whether I am there with her or whether I am halfway across the globe.

The Impact

Both of these two beautiful human beings impact my life greatly. We have our good days and we have our bad days, but we can always count on our sisters through both. I have come to the conclusion that I love them so much I would take a bullet for them any day. We are not only sisters, we are best friends. I am truly grateful to be blessed with two people that I would not change for the world.
