I've had several fueds with my brother(hey, it's my job). Seriously though, I've made sure to keep the family in check.

Yup.. Being the sister has loads of responsibilities.. Furthermore the eldest.. Have to set a good example.. Have to take care of my younger brothers when my parents are not around.. Have to help my brothers when they need help.. Im the 1st to be asked to help my parents as im the eldest too.. Have to help out with the house chores as well, be it cleaning up, etc.. Have to help cook when required... But its fun too.. Coz my younger brothers look up to me..

I've become an example for things my little sister shouldn't do, heh.

It's true that being a sister has a lot of responsibilities. In my case, I'm the eldest and there were times that I acted as a mom to my younger siblings. I assumed that role for many years since my parents are both working. There were also times that I thought that if being one is just merely an obligation to my family. Because I often have this feeling that whatever happens to any of my younger siblings, I am totally responsible. And it's not a good feeling. One time my sister told me that I should just chill out because I'm not her mom, and that she doesn't need one because she's already and adult. I shouldn't be telling her on what to do since it's her choice. I also asked myself about that, but I just can't help it. I maybe wrong at times, but what can I do?

Over the years, we made sure we were there to love and support eachother, encouraging eachother in any way we could, making the other feel special. When she got married I was a bridesmaide in her wedding, and I want her to be my bridesmaide when I get married.
