As some of you may know, I have a twin sister. Throughout our lives, we had ups and downs, and we have faced many struggles that could either break or strengthen our relationship. When I was younger, I wanted to be an only child. I didn’t want to share anything with anyone. I didn’t enjoy the special attention that we got as twins, and I often felt like I couldn’t stand on my own. However, looking back, I know that my childhood would have been much worse if I didn’t have you.
Contrary to my desire to have everything to myself, it seemed I shared everything with you – a room, clothes, friends. Moreover, we shared deep things like secrets, experiences, stories, and dreams. I know that no matter what, you’d support me and would have my back, and I yours. When I think about our relationship and all that we have been through, I find myself wondering what would have happened if I didn’t have you in my life? We shared everything. You were my confidant and biggest supporter but also knew to put me in my place when I was exaggerating. You accepted me despite all my faults. You aren’t only my sister, my twin, but also my best friend. I know I tell you often how much I appreciate you, but it never feels enough.
Thank you for always been there for me. Thank you for putting up with me all these years. Thank you for the childhood memories I’ll carry in my heart forever. Thank you for making me believe in myself and for believing in me, for generously sharing your time, your love, yourself. Thank you for being a part of my life and for letting me be a part of yours. As you can understand, I am so thankful that you are a part of my life. You are my rock, and I love you so much. Now, unlike in my childhood, I know I wouldn’t want to be an only child. Life would be so much worst without you, my great sister, to share it with.
