But hear me out for a second. Despite our occasional fights and even more common arguments, I’m incredibly lucky to have you in my life and for multiple reasons. For starters, I don’t think I could have dealt with mom and dad and everything they threw at me without you being there to dilute it. Believe it or not, but having you around really made it easier to grow up.
I still remember how you, despite complaining about it the next morning, quietly opened the door to help me sneak back in from that late night party I had gone to. I also remember how you adorably took the blame for the time I rammed dad’s car while learning how to drive.
