I Was Not Nice to My Sister . . . But I Learned My Lesson
This is a true story that I want to share with you, so that you will not make the same mistakes that I did, and if you do, you will understand why you are wrong for doing so. I was not nice to my sister, and lied to my parents about my actions. Not once, or twice, multiple times, and I was mean to my sister many times as well.
You’re probably thinking that I am a horrible person right now, and I thought I was too, but the below quote helped me understand that I made a mistake. I need to learn from it and move on.
Well not just the quote. My parents and my sister helped me too, and I am really grateful to them for that.
The part that spoke to me the most was “Girls will be your friends – they’ll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything – they’re your true best friends. Don’t let go of them.” The other part of the quote that spoke to me was “Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world.”
This life is what you make it. No matter what, you're going to mess up sometimes, it's a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you're going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends - they'll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything - they're your true best friends. Don't let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. . . . Just because you fail once, doesn't mean you're going to fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don't, then who will? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life's a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about.” -Marilyn Monroe'
Both my parents explained this to me after I hurt my sister, because it is true. Your friends are your friends but when life comes crashing down and your friends are not there to rescue you, your sister is. She is, was, and will always be there for me and I love her SO much!
I realized how important she is for me, and after thinking back on everything she has done for me I completely understood what an idiot I was. After everything she’s done for me not to mention what she will do for me, I treated her badly and there is NO excuse for that.
Another topic that I would like to discuss is lying. Do you think lying is ok? Well I can tell you that I believe lying is TOTALLY ABSOLUTELY unacceptable. Despite this, I lied more then 3 times to my parents about what happened, and I lied to my sister. I am ashamed that I did so, because lying is not only not ethical, but it creates a wall of distrust between people. If you lie, why should people trust you anymore? Think of the boy who cried wolf; he cried wolf multiple times when the wolf wasn’t there, and each time the townsmen came to save him only to discover he tricked them. But the one time, after he deceived them a lot, he cried wolf and nobody came. This time however the wolf showed up, and no one was there to save him.
To conclude, and tie my points together. I want to go back to the story of the boy who cried wolf. The last sentence to be specific; “This time however the wolf showed up, and no one was there to save him”. The story is an example of why you shouldn’t lie, and the ending is an example of that, but also can describe sisters/siblings. I bet if the boy who cried wolf had a sibling, that sibling would have been there, no matter how many lies he told, to save him. I know my sister would have.
