No matter who you are or where you come from, family life is usually complicated. Be it big or small, happy or contentious, keeping a family functioning smoothly and happily is no easy feat. It also doesn't help that living in close quarters, day after day, with the people we love tends to bring out our grouchier sides.
Thankfully, we have love, affection, and loyalty to fill in all the rough patches and keep our bonds strong.
This is especially true when it comes to the ridiculously complicated relationships between siblings. They're the "friends" we can't help loving and hating — all at the same time. No one is a better example of this than two sisters who are currently trending on social media for their "frenemy" text exchange.
It's a fact that no two families are exactly the same.
But most families do have one thing in common.
But that doesn't mean it's always easy.
There's the classic struggle for parents.
And then there's sibling rivalry.
A subset of sibling rivalry is "sister rivalry."
No one knows the challenge of living together like the two sisters who've recently gone viral.
“what’s it like having a sister?” https://t.co/mNkSOSXZBU— 𝔲𝔠𝔥𝔦𝔪𝔞 (@𝔲𝔠𝔥𝔦𝔪𝔞)1509745917.0
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.

And, sometimes, sisters straight up get the cold shoulder.

Everyone seems like they're in agreement here.
