“Because I have a brother I ‘ll always have a friend.” Such a truthful saying!
Don’t you think so? A brother-sister relationship is that special bond, where small tiffs throughout the day bursts into laughter over a cone of ice-cream, to sharing of the deepest secrets before wishing each other a warm hearted good night. You both have grown up together, have shared memories together, have been the perfect daughter and son for your parents, and as siblings have not only laughed together, but also tried to wipe away tears from each other’s eyes. We are aware of the power that a sibling’s opinion, view and voice has in each other’s life. The question therefore arises what does a brother need to hear from his sister? The feeling of remaining under a sister’s guidance is manifested through an untied bond of a determined counsel and advice which acts as a matchless companion in comparison to any other form of relationships. Let the sweet bond of a brother- sister relationship be jotted down in words as a means dedicated towards your brother which you couldn’t tell before. Enable a sister to understand the strong and important role they have in their brother’s lives and how much they can groom themselves to act as a role model for her brother in bringing out the best results.
YOU HOLD ON A HIGH OPINION OF YOUR BROTHER, AND HENCE YOU RESPECT HIM
Whenever we look at the word ‘respect’ we are basically emphasizing on holding a high opinion on someone compiled with a blend of admiration, praise and favor. Nothing seems more pleasant when you earn the respect from someone who is close to you, whatsoever the age might be. A sister loves her brother, and just as a woman craves for respect, similarly your brother too desires to earn a respect from his sibling. It doesn’t matter whether he is younger or elder to you. For the truth lies in the fact that greater the respect received from the sister, better the chances of building up a strong sibling bond. This act of respect is so very powerful, but I can testify that it is a strong need in every brother’s life. This feeling of a deepregard foryour brother is generated by the abilities, potential qualities and praises he has achieved so far.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR BROTHER, AND HENCE YOU APPRECIATE HIM
As a sister always remain or rather be grateful to your brother for his deeds and work analysis. Never ever try to underestimate his contribution he makes towards the family members. Make your brother know that he is precious and that he is undoubtedly doing the best in his own way for bringing in a valued contribution towards the family, and most importantly and specifically to your life. Never ever fail or rather forget to shower your token of thanks and gratitude for who he is and all that he builds on to your lives. Hence, a sister wants his brother to know that he is appreciated for his good conduct, moral support, love, care that he bestows on her and his parents and that a mere thanks is indeed a lesser gift in comparison to his contribution.
YOU FEEL SAFE WHEN YOUR BROTHER IS AROUND, AND HENCE YOU DEPEND ON HIM
As girls we always need a protected shield to safeguard ourselves from societal dangers. Hence dear brother always remember that a sister is solely depended on you. If he is your elder brother, make him believe that you are depended on him because he is no less than a fatherly figure to you. On the other hand, if he turns out to be your younger brother make him realize that not only his sister but that the entire family is depended on him. This is so because he is an important person in your lives and his opinions does matter. It is through his maturity in each passing years that a sister will feel a secured ambience wherever she goes, for she has her brother by her side.
YOU ADMIRE YOUR BROTHER’S UNIQUE QUALITIES, AND HENCE YOU LIKE HIM
May be as siblings you indulge yourselves into a great fight like Tom and Jerry over a bar of chocolate, TV, computer games, but at the end of the day a brother has no replacement. There might be differences in the matters of opinion, but then dear brother your sister wants you to know that you are special to her in your own unique way. A sister likes her brother just the way he is, because this is the ardent way she has seen him grow up. Your sister knows what is perhaps the best for her brother, and therefore doesn’t exaggerate while defining his individual qualities. He is likeable not only because of his unique traits but also because of his very own persona which makes him different from others. This likeness involves an emotion where both fun, frolic, and sadness are juxtaposed together while cherishing certain memorable moments. Primarily, a sister think that you are indeed a well ordered person who can give her more logical tips on matter that you cannot regularly notice.
YOU FEEL ASSURED IN YOUR BROTHER’S OPINION, AND HENCE YOU ARE LOYAL TO HIM
We all have our secrets good and bad. After your parents if there is any trusted member in the family with whom you can feel free to share your secrets that’s undoubtedly your brother. Similarly, your brother too feels free to share about his wearies to his sister because what prevails thereafter is a sense of security and assurance. A sister assures his brother that he shouldn’t feel worried regarding her opinion on him, because she knows how to maintain a private space in the sibling affair without involvement of any sort of a public opinion irrespective of a personal gain. It doesn’t really matter who tells what because an outsider’s comment will no longer have the power to bring in a kind of dispute between the two. A sister is as loyal to her brother for she is both his friend, his close associate and a reliable shoulder to cheer him up.
YOU WANT TO SEE YOUR BROTHER HAPPY, AND HENCE YOU PROMISE TO BE THERE FOR HIM
What is most important at the end is the maximum support and care a brother expects from his sister. Therefore, this phrase is indicative of a genuine confession of always standing as a helping hand to your brother. A sister wants her brother to know that he can always look forward to any situations and that she will always help him in achieving his wishes. There might be situations when you will begin to lose your confidence. But as a sister you will always remain by your brother’s side in making the best effort to remove his fears and wearies. A sister’s only promise is that as siblings you will always be a helping hand no matter what the circumstances turn out to be. The roads may have been diverged, and even the whole world might be on one side. But your sister is, was and shall forever be your moral support and see her brother fight amidst all the odds, till a beautiful smile lightens up his lost spirit.
I am myself an elder sister to a 14year old lad, and so while writing I just acted as a spokesperson to the general voices of sisterhood. A sister is like a motherly figure to her brother and this relationship has its own charm and tenderness where a perfect definition fails to highlight its simplicity. You do not know how consciously and unconsciously you are setting up an example for your brother and being the voice in his life that he will bear with him for untold years to arrive. Let your brother know how much you adore him and that you would leave no stone unturned to nurture yourself to be the sister he needs.
