"I love you like a sister." I told her. She smiled back at me and I could see she didn't understand. She knew it was a compliment
but she just didn't get it. This was one of the biggest compliments
I could give a friend. So I tried to explain....
. Family sticks together no matter what. Family tells you when you are dating a complete moron
, are spending too much money, have poor fashion sense, and/or in general doing something to royally fuck up your life. You can yell
at family in anger
, you can take out your frustrations
on family. Ten minutes later, family will have forgiven you and will ask you to go to the mall
Family annoys you, butts into your private affairs and gives unsolicited advice
. But family only does this because sometimes you are too blind
to see what is painfully obvious. Family understands you, loves you for who you are, and helps you when you are down.
Sisters are family....
and that's why I love you like a sister.
