We can all recall, those of us with siblings, the lasting memories of childhood and the instigators in our life we call brother or sister. Many of us had close, bonding relationships that made us feel protected, and others recall times of utter chaos and torment. Some of us felt our birth position as powerful, such as the first born dictates, or how much you were able to get away with things being the baby in the family. But no matter the type of relationship you had with your siblings, they shaped us in ways we are now finding impacts how well we adjust in our daily adult lives.
“There may be no relationship… that’s closer, finer, harder, sweeter, happier, sadder, more filled with joy or fraught with woe, that the relationship we have with our brothers and sisters.” – Jeffrey Kluger, TED Radio Hour.
They know your real Persona.
