Personal Account. A relationship that has changed me

Extracts from this document...


Growing up as Marianna's younger brother hasn't always been easy, and without laughter I hardly think I could make it through. Tears and laughter, pain and happiness, embarrassment and pride, and thousands of other emotions have all been a part of the adventure of being a younger brother. Marianna is a girl with strong personality, strong likes and dislikes a very smart sense of humor. Living with her has been no less if not more complex that Marianna herself. She made me feel thousands of different ways. She has made me want to crawl under the table at a restaurant and hide from people staring, scream out in frustration, punch a wall, slam doors and even cry.

Since she moved, we call each other almost every day or e-mail each other whenever we can. She has influenced my life in many ways by giving advice when I had problems with my parents or with relationships with girls and her always encouraged me in everything that I did academically and still does today. We have shared secrets that no one else knew about and spent a lot of quality time together. I am stronger now and can look back at the memories my sister and I have shared. As babies, we did not use to play and be friends but as we got older, our relationship has changed! I am grateful to have an older sister like her because without her I would not be the person I am today. ...read more.
