Those petty issues on which we fight, that cute blackmailing, sharing of one chocolate, lovely bantering, sharing of a secret and telling please don’t tell to Mom and Dad, these all things remind us of the cute relationship which we share with our siblings. We share dual bonds with our siblings, blood-relation and all-time friendship bond.
But when we get mature; this endearing relationship becomes murky sometimes, especially now a days our work is so demanding that we couldn’t devote the time to our family members and this integral relationship with our siblings becomes weak so now there is a need to recover this bond and improve the relationship with our siblings by understanding the following tips:
Don’t keep the feelings of competition at least with your sibling
It is seen many times that even siblings compete with each other in a negative way. If your brother or sister achieved something which you couldn’t so there is no need to be jealous, be happy for them, take inspiration and guidance from them, celebrate their success. Never feel that your parents, friends or relatives love your siblings more. Your siblings are your shadow, so if they get more love or success consider it as one and the same thing that you got it and cherish it.
Never make siblings feel inferior
Sometimes it may happen that you are doing great in your career and your near and dear one praise you more in front of your sibling as he or she is not so successful. So, at this time don’t let your sibling feel down and boast of your achievements, instead tell them that they have many strengths and skills which make them extraordinary, build an understanding with them.
Never let the relationship be affected with your brother or sister after marriage
It is observed that siblings feel that love will be parted with coming of the spouse. So, at this crucial time balance the relationships in a right way, deal with the insecurities of your siblings, explain your brother or sister that everybody has its own place and love for the siblings will never be superseded by the love for spouse.
Communication is the best healer of every relationship, time and again communicate with your siblings, and tell them how important they are for you. Shower your love on them. If differences arise between you and siblings resolve it by interacting with them, make them feel calm if they are angry you. And just don’t communicate through messages and phone calls, talk to them face to face then only you can communicate comfortably and express your emotions.
Recollect the memories and revive the relationship
Sometimes going in the reflections helps to lead the desired results. Recollect the joyful memories which you had with your siblings and try to live those moments again. Sit together with your brother or sister and laugh on the funny moments of your childhood, become childish once again and create a jocular atmosphere. These all small things will really strengthen bond.
Make your siblings feel special
Value the presence of your sibling, do things which make them feel special, plan a trip or outing with them. Go on for cycling, shopping or anything which make them feel good. Cook something special, give surprises, exchange clothes and take extreme care of them.
