Being the only child of your parents is not as easy as people think it is. Many people would define it as freedom, the freedom of having the entire care and attention of your X and Y chromosome donors.
People who know me well probably are aware of the fact that if there is any void that I’ve ever felt in my life, it was always that of an elder sister!
I wish I had an elder sister, who would be my best friend, who would listen to all my stupid and sensible talks and not judge me. Who would be my secret keeper and would respond to me at any time of the day and would see me as a priority, even after she gets married. An upgraded version of my mother who would bridge that gap between my mother’s worries and concerns about me. Someone who would be as worried as my mother when I get sick and still not let our parents get worried about it. Who would make sure I make the right choices in life and be my unconditional guide. An individual who would act possessive when someone pretends to own me.
One who would always make sure I don’t look outdated. A lady of my generation who would laugh and cry with me, and would give me a warm hug when I am emotionally drained.
A woman who would be my partner in crime when giving surprises to our parents. A lady who would resonate with my thoughts and not feel insecure in my presence. A person who would see me as an individual and not as an insecure member of the opposite gender.
A sister who would play that vital role when my parents look for my bride. Who would be a mental support to my wife when she joins our family!
A complete package! A package that God decided not to give me!
Since I don’t have this dream sister in my life I know how significant this void is and how beautiful a creation an elder sister is. However, I am still ever grateful for what I have.
It’s a void which can never be perfectly covered by anyone unless God has created a perfect sister from another mother for me! That’s a question only time will answer and I sincerely hope there is one!
Until then, here are a few questions for those who already have this gift.
Do you realise how lucky you are to have an elder sister? Have you ever imagined how different your life would have been without them?
I know for sure that nobody values this blessing, so this is my gentle reminder to you! Please count your blessings and do not waste your life being ignorant.
I wish I had a sister!………. And I wish my son gets lucky enough to have one😅
