“Who was the first person you encountered today? Write about him or her.” –The Daily Post
Technically, the first person I encountered today was my little sister. She yelled at me this morning while I was showering because apparently I was taking too long. She told my dad I was in the shower for two hours which was completely FALSE – I was really only in there for 20 minutes!
My sister and I are two very different people. I’m not even sure how we are as close as we are with one another because we really are polar opposites in many respects. I’m the studious, optimistic, neat-freak. She’s the mean, sloppy, bratty, socialite.
Don’t get me wrong – I love her to death but on some days, it can be so draining to be around her. She manages to put a negative spin on almost everything I do and as someone who tries to be so positive about life, I find her attitude towards me so draining. We still have a blast together and I think she’s an awesome person. We just bump heads a lot. I guess like any other pair of siblings would.
That’s part of why I’ve been so scared to come out to her. In the moment, I know she will be the most supportive, loving, wonderful sister in the world BUT the minute we get into a fight, I only pray she doesn’t abuse our trust and blackmail me with telling our parents.
