To cultivate a close-knit sibling bond, we must strive to first perish rivalries and bitterness among ourselves to make room for appreciation and affection.
“A researched study showed that siblings tend to spend more than half a portion of their available time, about 10-17 hours, with each other”.
So, what can you do to become an exemplary figure in your siblings’ lives? Check out below!
Be a patient listener: You must have the capacity to listen to your siblings intently and with keen interest. Create an aura of acceptance and incline towards asking questions to make them feel heard.
Ability to apologize: If you can garner the strength to apologize first, either for hurting them or because of a conflict you had encountered with them, then you’ll surely melt negative energies away!
Ooze compassion and empathy: Be a gentle reminder of compassion every day! Be understanding of their problems and complications; empathize with an open spirit.
Respect and humility: Display respect, whether they are a senior or minor. Boot your pride and jealousy aside to honor their existence.
Tip 1 – Try to forgive them quickly by dispelling your animosity or dispute with them.
Eliminate comparison: If we constantly compare ourselves to them, we only ignite conflicts and an inferiority complex. So better yet, encourage them for their achievements and rewards!
Foster teamwork: Another great way to be a charming sibling is to facilitate collaboration by lending a helping hand to them by intersecting chores, homework, or tasks.
Tip 2 – Try acknowledging them now and then for the little things they do!
Leadership skills: Be an exemplary figure who displays leadership proficiency and teaches them the essentials to become leading role models so they can forge newer directions!
Being the best sibling means holding on to a set of higher morals and general goodness! Make sure to exist in the bubble of unity, and let yourself be each others’ promising allies.
