Happiest 13th sister and Congratulations on turning into a teen today….these next 6 years are going to be an absolute roller coaster which will prepare you for more to come. You are just starting to get accepted into the world and will be amazed by its ways…that’s why I guess you have me…your sister to guide you through it.
Turning into a teen might feel like an achievement now but you will soon realize that being a teenager is harder than it seems. Sure, you are older and more mature now. Soon you’ll start making your own decisions. But every coin has two sides so no matter what decision you make you need to face its consequences. But I want you to know that you won’t be alone because you have me to help you out…always!
I know having an older sibling is annoying and sometimes irritating for you…I couldn’t imagine if I had one! lol…
But you also need to know that having an older sibling comes in handy especially during these 6 yrs. I didn’t have an older sibling to advise me on problems or to guide me through them…I never had someone to share their experiences with me but you do and I hope that you’ll let me share these things with you because I would never want to see you get hurt…
You’ll have moments now where you’ll feel like no one listens to you or understands you, you’ll have your tantrums and will probably not like your family interrupting your decisions but you should know that whatever we do is for your own good…so that you don’t make the same mistakes we did and you do the right thing when your friends convince you to do something else instead…
I’ve been a teen for almost 3 years now and halfway through I’m just realizing that its just the beginning to what people call becoming an adult. I know that right now I may seem like the last person you’d wanna share your problems with but trust me it’s gonna be you and me for the rest of our lives…but you don’t need to see my as your sister always, you can just think of me as your friend and talk to me…it’s like dove Cameron quoted on liv and Maddie
“Sisters by chance, Friends by choice”
You and I will have our moments and I will be a crucial part of your life. I have been through whatever you are about to go through and will surely be there to lend you a helping hand after you need one…after all who’s gonna help you get out of trouble or help convince mom and dad when you go seeking permissions for non-permissible things?. Whom are you gonna tell your secrets to; whose clothes are you gonna borrow and whom are you going to irritate? (I know you can’t live without that)
Before I end my letter to you, I have just a few tips for you.
Firstly, you have always been a free spirit always embrace that…never let anyone feel that they can take advantage of you. Next, always be sure to put your point of view on things across to the other person but without hurting them. Thirdly, trust people wisely…the person you thought that you could trust the most could be the one to betray you after all….so always make true relations. Then never hurt people, make a positive impact…you don’t know what kind of battle they are fighting. Always remember, “people change people” and what matters is,” what we do for them.” Lastly, enjoy life…as mom says, “it only knocks at your door once and you only get one shot at it, so make it worth it.”
Go out, be crazy, have fun, be carefree but careful at the same time.
I know we don’t say this much but i really love you sis and just want you to be prepared for anything that life throws at you. Always remember no matter what, it’s you and I forever and it won’t get better…
All my love,
