A letter To you, My twin
Sometimes we fight, sometimes we laugh, and sometimes we cry. Some days we see eye to eye and some days we can't even agree on a place to eat. Some days I wish you did not exist, others I could not imagine my life without you in it.
You are my twin. You have been through everything with me, from getting our drivers licenses to graduation and starting college. We grew up sharing more than just a birthday, we shared everything (even when we did not want to) because we were always 'the twins'. We shared a bedroom, a car, clothes, friends, etc. Sometimes I hated that we were forced to do everything together, but now you have become my security blanket. Now I love when we get to do things together and make memories.
Over the years we have had many different phases of our relationship. The periods of time when we were inseparable and always did everything together. The “I hate your face, voice, and everything about you” period of time where I basically lived at a friend’s house so I did not have to be around you. We always get back to our original and best state though, which is when we are best friends.
As we grew into adulthood we fell into our permanent roles. I am the motherly one, whereas you are the one who needs a mother, so to speak. You lean on me in ways that our other siblings do not. I make appointments for you or phone calls when you aren’t sure what to say, I sometimes write emails to your professors, and even call you to make sure you are up on time.
You do a lot for me though too, even if it doesn't always seem like it. You always agree to go to Hobby Lobby and Target with me, even though you know I probably won't buy anything. You always have a lent roller whenever my clothes are covered in dog fur and hair ties when I need one. You play with my dogs every time you are at my house and accept them as your niece and nephew.
You know every story I tell from my childhood, because you experienced it right alongside me. You know all of my likes and dislikes and my pet peeves. You know how I got the scar on my forehead and how I fractured my toe.
We still have so much more to experience together in the future. We will stand by each others side someday when we get married. We will watch each other start families and careers. We will be able to experience major changes together and even apart, but you should know that without a doubt I will always be here, likewise you will always be there for me too.
