If you’re fortunate enough to have a sister, you know that the bond between you is so strong, almost nothing can break it. Let’s look at all the amazing ways that having a sister you’re close to will change your life for the better.

Just an idea, but before we go any further, why not do something nice for your favorite sibling? Maybe make her a sweet treat like an Orange Creamsicle Pie or a batch of sweet Citrus Blossom Cookies. She’ll love that you thought of her!

Studies Say Having Sisters Makes You A Better Person

7 Reasons Sisters Are the Best

1. They help each other dial back the crazy. They are a sounding board and a trusted advisor for one another. Having someone to support and encourage you on the regular is as good as a big dose of medicine sometimes.

A study at Brigham Young University in Utah found that “sisters seemed to help siblings avoid negative emotions. Those adolescents with sisters were less likely than those without sisters to indicate feeling lonely, unloved, guilty, self-conscious and fearful. It didn’t matter whether the sister was younger or older, or how far apart the siblings were age-wise.”

2. Sisters help reduce the likelihood of divorce. Okay, so we all know having a sister doesn’t take divorce out of the picture for us. If only. But, it’s interesting to learn that for every sibling a person has, their chance of divorce drops by 2%.

Apparently, all that quality work sisters do (known as fighting) makes us better at working out our differences with a spouse.

3. Sisters help each other be better communicators. Makes sense seeing as how sisters tell each other absolutely everything. Those late night sisterly talks about all the things that are important in life prepare women to be more open with their life partners later on.

4. They are second moms. When they each have kids, the other steps in and becomes a default bonus mom for her sister’s children. She is there when they are sick, or for their celebrations, and she’s right there for all mundane things like learning to ride a bike or tie shoes. Speaking of aunts, read all the reasons we think being an aunt is so wonderful.

5. Sisters are low-key gangsters. Anyone who messes with one sister will feel the wrath of the other. Being in that line of fire is not a place anyone should ever want to be.

6. Sisters fight. Sisters make up. The content of the fight will be forgotten by the time they are eating cheesecake and laughing. Who else can say that?

7. Sisters show up. Whether it’s 3 AM or in the middle of the workday, sisters will always answer the phone. They never have to face sadness or fear alone when they have each other.

What’s the one thing that makes your sister so awesome?

Brag about her in the comments and then for sure share with her so she can read all the good things you have to say “behind her back.”

I have a baby Sister who means the world to me. She came to me after 3 Brothers, and I can’t find words to Express my LOVE for her. She is such a SWEETHEART!! I LOVE YOU KATHY!! ❤‍♀️

My sister is the Best! Awesome Aunt too! She is always there when I need to talk and will do anything if I ask her. I love her so much, couldn’t ask for any other sister ❤️

I am the youngest sister of OUR FAMILY. All of MY SISTERS and BROTHERS are half SIBLINGS. TOO ME THEY ARE ALL WHOLE BLOODED. I love them all COMPLETELY NOT JUST HALF!
God Bless all of OUR SISTERS and (yucky) BROTHERS!! ( lol j/k). God Bless all!

I think this may be true if the sisters are raised to respect each other and to be loyal to each other. If the parents foster too much competition, or show favortism, then this is less likely to be true. 🙁

This is so awkwardly true. I say this because even if I have no one else to turn to I can always turn to my sister! No matter time of day or night. It’s those late nights that are most memorable both ways even ehen she calls I’m up whether 4 pm or 4 am! I’m blessed to have such a great sister and friend, always there for good, bad and even those ugly we won’t mention or incriminate ourselves lol 

I lost one sister to cancer and as hard as that was it brought my other sister and I closer. I can talk to her about anything and she always listens and is never judgemental. I enjoy her company and feel a bond that is unlike any other. We have been through good times and bad but have been there for each other. I love her with all my heart.

Wow that article really hit the nail on the head! Linda, Rachel, Norene & Kathy – sister’s are the BEST!!

I have FOUR sisters so I am truly blessed! Each has her own personality of course – we have a nurse, a law clerk, a jokester, a retail specialist and a professional recruiter. The talents of these women are many but mostly, they just make me laugh.

My Sisters are always there for me and always will just like i’m always there for them
when they need Or want it, I love them and they love me I know they do. Kisses~Lily.
