If you are lucky enough to be blessed with a cousin, you know what I mean when I say that they mean the world to us. Although you may not see them every day or it seems like lately, you haven’t heard from them, a cousin best friend is one of the greatest things in life.
They are like the brother or sister you never had, and the first person you come running to when you need an advice. You are two different people, but the bond between you is stronger than everything else.
I’m guessing that’s the same reason why “God made us Cousins because he knew our moms couldn’t handle us as sisters.” Still one of the most relatable quotes to this day, so if you want to know why, keep reading!
1. YOU’VE LITERALLY KNOWN EACH OTHER SINCE FOREVER
You’ve practically grown up sleeping in the same bed together. There are no awkward introduction moments, seeing as you basically know the way they breathe.
You’ve held hands while peeing. You know the way they react, you feel their fear whenever they’re scared. You understand them completely. Probably the most legit reason to put them on top of the list before every other friend.
2. THEY LOVE YOU NO MATTER WHAT
I don’t know if they’re stuck with you, but a family will here forever. Cousins are there for us since the beginning of time and they’ve seen you even in your ugliest conditions. They accept you for who you truly are and love you wholeheartedly.
3. YOU DON’T HAVE TO EXPLAIN YOUR FAMILY’S CRAZINESS BECAUSE THEY’VE SEEN IT ALL
Both of you have been a part of those awkward family gatherings, where your uncle keeps babbling about your country’s political situation and your aunt goes on and on about her freshly baked chocolate chip cookies recipe. Lucky for you, there’s your cousin to take the edge off and laugh through the night.
4. YOU’VE PROBABLY SHARED TONS OF EMBARRASSING MOMENTS TOGETHER THROUGH THE YEARS
I mean come on, I’m sure you’ve experienced the horrors of bubble baths together, playing with rubber duckies and Barbie dolls. As a result, it is very likely they’ve seen you in the nude more than your ex-boyfriends.
5. THEY ARE YOUR FAVORITE DOPPELGANGERS
Seeing that you’ve grown up together, you two are almost twins. Everywhere you go, people ask you if you two are sisters when in reality you are the ultimate partners in crime. Ain’t nobody messing with your clique!
6. YOU HAVE A SPECIAL LANGUAGE ONLY YOU TWO CAN UNDERSTAND
Do you have a special kind of secret lingo for gibberish talk and funny code names for people? The second you see them, you immediately switch to your secret language and leave people wondering what the hell are you babbling about.
7. THEY TELL IT LIKE IT IS
Didn’t find the time to shower yesterday? Don’t worry, they’ll find the perfect way to let you know how greasy your hair looks. One of the perfect parts of your relationships is the fact that you two can be honest to the point of brutal without anyone getting offended.
8. THEY’VE HELD YOUR HAND THROUGH IT ALL
Always there through thick and thin, your cousin has been here through every heartbreak, wiped every tear of yours, heard every story. It is a bond that it’s meant to last forever.
9. YOU SHOW AT EACHOTHERS HOUSE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT FOR NO APPARENT REASON WHATSOEVER
You don’t need a legit reason to show up at their porch in the middle of the night. It’s Friday and you feel bored? You don’t need to be when your cousin lives 2 doors next to you.
10. YOUR IN-JOKES ARE HYSTERICAL
And when it comes down to your humor, there’s no better stand-up comedy duo than you two. Probably no one would even understand what are you two laughing about, but then again, that’s their loss.
11. YOU DEFEND EACHOTHER FIERCELY
Nobody is allowed to talk trash about your ‘cuz’. You’re used to defending each other fiercely from anyone who tries to mess with you two ever since you were babies. You can rest assured, they’ll always have your back.
