I'm a twin and no I don't hate my twin. No evil twin or all these misconceptions people have. Whether you know a set of twins, are having twins or just curious. Here are seven reasons why being a twin is amazing and it should help you understand the relationship between twins and it may even open your eyes to some of those twin quirks you can't figure out.
1. Built In Best Friend
Remember those days when you clashed with someone at school or someone didn't like you? Well, if you had a twin, you'd have someone to keep you company and have your back no matter what. When nothing else grows right, my twin sister is always there to commiserate with, from the time we were kids and even now. We have eachothers back. haha just find it funny when someone doesn't like my sister they end up not liking me and verse visa. ohh well :)
That's my top reason why being a twin is awesome. We've been best friends since before birth and we'll never STOP!!
2. Its Fun To Trick People
My twin sister and I are technically fraternal(Like Mary Kate and Ashley), but we can pass for identical. We use to have great fun with this when we were younger and okay I'll be honest we still trick people. Loved when we would trick our teachers, and friends. My mom and dad would also dress us alike just for no reason at all and buy us the same things so we don't feel they had a favorite between my twin sister and me(what I love about my parents). We could never get our parents messed up between us :/
3. We Can Laugh At Misconceptions
No, my twin and I can't read each other's minds. But people always make that assumption and it's a good time to laugh about it when we can.
4. We Like the Same Things
We grew up together and we still enjoy the same leisure actitivies. Twins always have someone to play with and even like the same hobbies, movies or outings and its nice to know that no matter what crazy idea I have, there's someone who is on board. We grew up playing soccer,baseball, basketball, football, and volleyball. Together we found the love for Running!! :)
5. It Increases Competition
This might not sound awesome, but stay with me here. As I was growing up with my twin, we spurred each other to do our best because we each wanted to be the best. Twins often compete to be noticed and recognized as a separate person, so this competitveness works as a great motivator to get each other to be the best. No way my twin sister is getting a better grade or a starting position or faster time if I wasn't too, so I never slacked off.
6. We Have The Same Memories
For the last 25 years of our life, my twin and I sleep together and even though we have different bedrooms. We also share outfits and food. That means we have loads and loads of memories that are ours alone.
7. We Always Stick Up For Each Other
It's the age-old double standard. I can be mad at her and say snotty things, but betide the person who attempts to do the same. No matter which one was being picked on, the other will, and still is, there to put a stop to it. Oh how I recall the vivid memory of a classmate who dared to say something mean to me.
Do you know twins? I don't know what I'd do without my twin sister and I bet all twins feel the same. These are seven reasons why I think it's amazing being a twin. Share why you think being a twin is amazing!! :)
