I have an identical twin, and we've lived an interesting life together
Do you have a twin?
I am not a twin, but I am curious about twin relationships.
Are you two very close?
Do you have similar interests, or not?
I imagine it is a true joy...most of the time, or not?
I was hoping you were also a twin when I saw your reply
Yes, and we consider ourselves best friends, not just sisters
Our interests are very similar, and we both are working toward the same type of career, just different branches of it (I guess branches is the word I am looking for)
Got more questions just ask
Those are the positives… any non-positives or hard-to-handles?
We fight as much as any two siblings, but that doesn't bother me
We get stared at when we go anyplace, and we get uncomfortable with that at times
Remarks made to us etc
Another positive is that we have double the clothes, hers, and mine
We've even dreamed of similar subjects on the same night more than once.
We sense when the other is happy, sad, and afraid. Stuff like that
Did you ever feel like you could not be alone?
Yes, but as we started to grow up a little, we gave each other time alone.
It's funny though because being apart wasn't what we wanted long term
Yes, but very valuable for both of you to find solitude when it is needed. It is good you learned to recognize your need to interiorize and tune into your own inner life without distraction.
This is also valuable for married couples.
It is also valuable for young children to have time to themselves. To be left alone to follow their own stimulus.
Parents sometimes think kids need constant entertainment or constant company and interaction.
They need the opposite.
Based on Montessori Principles
I agree. Tara and I can be together, doing separate things, sometimes what we are doing is just thinking
We always shared a bedroom until we turned fourteen, and then we had to have our own. My dad knew the need for solitude so he made sure we never shared a room again.
Tara puts lemon juice on her hair and sits in the sun, so our hair isn't the same anymore, mine's dark, her's is medium dark.
I straighten my curly hair, and she does too, but only occasionally
We both wear it a little past our shoulders
Only our faces look exact now
You have a compassionate Dad! I admire him.
Because my mom died when we were so young, I think he felt sorry for us, and decided to be a better parent, the best one he could be. He's great, so thank you for saying something nice about him, he deserves it
You and your sister must have really been a comfort for each other. You will always be, I would imagine. Thanks for the insights
Yes we were, and I am sure we will be in the future. I am 25 mins older than she, and I hope when the time comes I'll die 25 mins sooner. I couldn't bare to know she had died so I want to beat her to it
Thank you, I've enjoyed our talk(s) you're great
Only friends and family call me Debbie, for people here it's either Mara, or Monkeyshine75
