Being an only child can be great, but it can also get lonely at times. Sure, you have the undivided attention of your parents at all times, but when it comes to companionship from people your own age, you have to look outside of the household. That’s why brothers and sisters can be the best. The bond shared by siblings can be a very special one. There’s almost no one on Earth you can be closer to than your brothers and/or sisters.
Now, those of you who are perceptive readers may have noticed that the qualifier “can be” kept getting thrown around when discussing the relationship between brothers and sisters. That’s because while having siblings can be the best, it can also be the absolute worst. If you don’t believe that, consider yourself lucky, because your family sounds awesome. Not everyone is so fortunate. These brothers and sisters are just the worst.
