10 Pics That Show What Having a Sibling Is All About

Having a sibling can be an emotional roller-coaster. They are the ones you want to go to for comfort, but they are also the ones you want to scream at in frustration. Even after you’ve grown up and are living separately from them, you still have the memorable bonding times you’ve shared to look back on. And while reflecting on them, remember that some of them can be pretty hilarious now — even if they hurt back then.

We at Bright Side are excited to share some familiar and precious moments that those with siblings can relate to.
