My Other Half And I :)

My twin brother looks nothing like me. He's tall,skinny, and looks very Asian alike ^_^ people hardly believe we're twins when we tell them. My brother has always been the more outgoing one. Unlike me he isn't one bit shy. He's hilarious and people fall in love with him as soon as they meet him. Growing up with him has been fun. I remember he used to be my best friend. We did everything together. I was always the more tough one I think. Always defending him. One time in like 2nd grade this kid stole his pokemon cards so I ran after him and pushed him against the fence and made him return them to my brother.

We always used to fight as well, for the stupidest things. The worst fight I remember was when I punched him in the face lol Once puberty hit I no longer could fight with him, he was too strong haha.We have always had a special connection though I think the strongest in our family. When he feels pain I feel it and I don't mean telepathically either. If someone hurts him I feel the pain too. When he's happy I feel happy. We've always been there for each other. I remember when he broke up with his first love he came into my room and cried. It was the saddest thing even if it was only one or two tears. I had never seen my brother cry never ever and there he was sitting on the floor in my room crying.

I used to feel jealous of him because I always had the belief that my mom loved him more than me. I never was a daddy's girl cause my father was never in the picture so I only relied on my mom. We had to share her attention. I think sometimes he didn't like being a twin because there was always the comparison of us. My mom was always harder on him because of his grades. He had to keep up with me and get the same A's. I never realized how much it sucked to be told by your mom "you should be as good as your sister" until recently when she told me I should be as good as my brother. That he was going places and I was going to be stuck here because I wasn't sure of what I'm going to do with the rest of my life and blah blah blah but that's another story :)

I love my brother I can't imagine a world without him. When I went away to college last year I didn't realize how much I meant to him and how much he meant to me. We were apart for such a long time and now that I'm back I miss him even more because even though we live in the same house I feel no connection with him. It's not the same. He feels so distant from me living in his own little world and I hate it. I know it's a part of growing up and a part of the process we go through to gain our individuality but I do miss him...

Aww. That is really sad. I hate letting things go, such as relationships. I have a twin sister. She's my best friend! We're inseperable. With the exception of school, of course. We're alike. Alot. She thinks like me, looks like me, we have the same interests & all that good stuff. I'm always telling her that when we're older, we'll get a duplex house or something like that. I don't want to grow apart. :(
