Having a sibling is great, especially if it’s a sister. Of course, sometimes it can drive you crazy picking up your things without asking, eating the last candy, or just singing an annoying tune for hours at a time.
But at the same time, she is one of your closest followers, friend, playmate, and accomplice in games … And we could list these wonderful sister qualities indefinitely. But there is one thing that many people don’t know: the connection between our sister and our mental health.
So if you haven’t called your sister yet and told her that you love or hug her, we are ready to give you one more reason to do so. Sisters can improve our mental health and this is how it works.
It is no secret that the family has a great influence on the development of our personality. But our brothers have a special effect on us.
This conclusion was found in a study involving almost 400 families with 2 or more children. It says that siblings contribute twice as much to good deeds as parents.
They encourage helpful and kind actions towards others. And not being the only child in the family helps develop a sense of altruism and sympathy that, in turn, creates the habit of sharing and protecting weaker people.
The study found that regardless of the age difference, having a sister eliminates feelings of guilt, fear, loneliness, and heartbreak. Sometimes it is easier for children to share their secrets and doubts with their peers than with their parents.
And a sister is a great friend to whom you can tell even your deepest secrets. It also helps you avoid depression and makes you less stressed.
At the same time, fights between children can positively influence their control of their emotions and their ability to compensate.
Having a sister helps a brother to be more independent and optimistic. It also helps them develop the ability to cope with difficulties.
In a family with a large number of girls, sisters have a positive effect on developing ambitions. They form the desire to achieve their goals and excel.
These people are more successful in developing their careers because they have a strong sense of purpose and the motivation to get what they want.
Sisters help their brothers develop communication skills with women. It is easier for these guys to find a common language with the opposite sex.
They teach the right attitude towards girls and help them better understand the feminine nature. They can also help with advice and suggest how to behave correctly with a girl.
The bond with a sister is special and it is very important to strengthen it. After all, our siblings help us live longer and make our lives more fun.
The sisters give us love and affection and they will always be with us. Therefore, parents, as well as their children, must promote a strong and healthy relationship between siblings to have a better and more positive life.
