    How well do you get along with your siblings?

    Do you have a good relationship with your siblings? Do you see them only at family gathering or once every decade?

    I have two older sisters. One of them I communicate with via skype or telephone daily.  I visit with her twice a year; she lives a long way from where I do.
    The other one I speak to once or twice a week and see her about every two weeks.
    She is in poor health and she does not get out often.
    We are very close. I feel so blessed.

    Great answer! I too have siblings who I get along with well. I have two sisters who I talk to almost everyday , one sister and brother  who lives far away and we take every month on telephone. I think it is important to take intouch with your love ones.

    Not very well. I see mine all the time and they are constantly hurting my feelings and being rude to my fiance'. I know we should try to get along but one is just to much of hugging me all the time and the other is just plain rude and selfish. I can't really get over how much I can't seem to stand them anymore. I try I really do but they always do something and my parents never seem to see my side so I have given up trying. We are together at all family affairs and something rude is always said and it really starts to hurt my feelings. My family doesn't see it the way I do and it's starting to make it to were I don't want to be involved. I wish we got along better but with their attitudes and constantly asking for something and never returning a favor will probably make it to were we never will.

    Well, I have two brothers. I have a lot of fond memories with my older brother but as of now, he couldn't be any further away from me or our family. He's the sort who doesn't want anything to do with families and stuff and my younger brother is my one true friend and holds everything together in the family.
    Sibling relationships are delicate and fragile. It's important one should learn not to be overly dependent on your siblings because disappointment can cause a lot of obstacles to your personal growth; and at the same time, their support and involvement can make a lot of difference in your life.

    Unfortunately Lyrickkw, my only sibllings are "step"  They are children of another mom.  3 of the boys, I communicate with.  1 I can't tolerate after I paid a visit to the other three and then he snubbed me.  One other, a girl, I met when she was 3.  Since that date, I know nothing of her, her mom.  I guess you'd call me the outcast of the family
