Hi, older sister.
You actually mean so much to me, and I hope that I’ve told you this and have been able to show you that you are extremely important to me.
Like “Sharing”, I do not know where to begin with this post because there is so much that I could say about you. Let me try my best to form into words the love that I have for you, and the love that I’ve learned from your actions. Let’s do this.
It’s funny because growing up, we didn’t have the greatest big sister and little sister relationship. You used to manipulate me into giving you my toys, and I thought that that was what I was supposed to do. So, in a sense, thanks for being a butt (he he ha ha) because you taught me how to give without having the expectation of receiving.
Fast forward to our relationship now – you are one of my best friends, and I look up to you very much. The way you are so loving and independent, I literally want to be you (well, be you in the way that I take your good qualities and apply them to my life bc you’re just that cool). No one is as selfless as you. I see it in the way you treat me, gaw-gaw, Squirtle, mom and dad, Blueberry, and all the important people in your life.
You are also one of the most intelligent individuals I will come to know, and every time I am with you, it’s as if I always learn something new.
Thank you for being you. I would never trade what we have for anything else in the world. You are my poods, and you will forever be mine.

I come back to this post still staying true to everything that I said in the above. But I will be honest and say this – it truthfully drove me crazy that in the past couple of months (while we were both going through the motions of life), there was a huge empty void in my heart because you and I were not on the same wavelengths of those that used to be of our relationship, prior to February 2016 (and that’s okay, that’s life). To this day you are one of my biggest role models, right after mom. You’ve gone through so much and you’ve always taught me that when life gets rough, you will always be able to pick yourself up no matter how long it takes, and how hard it will be. You’ve taught me the definition of “resilience.”
I don’t care what you are. I don’t care what you do. I don’t care if you mess up a thousand times. I would never judge you, because you have taught me to look past people’s imperfections and mess ups and to move on in life. I just want you to be happy. And to be quite frank, I need you to be in my life, because you contribute to my happiness.
We’re going to be okay. Yeah life is rough and it can suck so much sometimes, but underneath it all, I truly do believe that there is always light at the end of the tunnel.
Can’t wait to see where your life takes you in your next journey. I’ll always be your proud little sister. I’ll always look up to you both figuratively and literally.
I hope you know how much I love you. If not, I hope that overtime I am able to outwardly show you.
You’re my favorite. You’re my poods. You and I against the world. Sisters forever, both by choice and by blood.
Love you forever and always.
