A subset of sibling rivalry is "sister rivalry."
While brothers certainly have their own dynamic, there’s something innate about many sister relationships that’s downright complicated. Whether you have one sister or five, it’s very possible that you’re best friends and enemies, all at the same time. It’s easy to pick on your own sister.
But if someone else tries to do it? Hold these earrings, because it’s gonna get ugly.
No one knows the challenge of living together like the two sisters who've recently gone viral.
It all started when Twitter user, @cinnimxntxast, posted this back and forth message she’d recently had with her sister. It’s a perfect study in what it’s like to have a female sibling, mainly because it shows the two extremes of emotion it’s possible to feel at the same time. Just as quickly as fight can start, it can end with the right choice of words and possibly a movie.
The post struck a chord with a lot of siblings.
The sister’s post was so relatable, it inspired other social media users to share their own stories about being a sister. Like the original poster, this one by Twitter user, @HastingsJenna10, is a great example of how a squabble can break out quickly over something silly, like a jacket, but be resolved in a minute or so.
The exchange of colorful words isn't exactly rare.
Another Twitter user, @Kyleebranstette, volunteered her own sibling exchange, which is laugh-out-loud funny. Fights over clothes, makeup, and hair products may tend to dominate sisterly disagreements, but many times, simple miscommunication can be the culprit as well.
And, sometimes, sisters straight up get the cold shoulder.
Sisterly squabbles are one thing, but, as Twitter user @lexablickenyo proves, those spats occasionally devolve into the silent treatment. Or getting blocked on social media, as it were. It’s not totally clear why she got blocked, but we’re hoping whatever it is falls into the “sisters have their own ways of working things out” category.
