Raksha Bandhan is a beautiful holiday celebrating the love between siblings (blood or not). It gives brothers and sisters a chance to realize how important the other is to them and to appreciate the moments you have together. This year we’d like to give our brothers some advice on FIVE FREE gifts that they can give their sisters not just this year, but every year.
Everyone needs some unconditional love! Always let your sister know how much she means to you and no matter what you’ll love her. Sometimes a parent’s love can feel conditional, like they’re only proud of you if you get good grades or follow the rules, she needs someone who is always on her side.
Respect your sister always. She needs to learn how a man should treat a women, if you disrespect her she will feel like that is what she deserves. You don’t want people to take advantage of your sister, you need to show her how a lady should be treated.
Protection is key! This is what Raksha bandhan is all about! You should always let your sister know that you have her back and of course, she will have yours!
You are the only other person who will understand her problems because you live in the same house, raised by the same parents! No one will understand her situation better than you so don’ve ever let her forget that she has you to support her.
In a culture and society where girls are treated as second class citizens many times you need to treat your sister as your equal. She needs to know that she is not any less than anyone else in the world and can succeed at anything she does.
Enjoy this Raksha Bandhan and don’t forget to love, respect, protect, support and treat your sister as your equal, always and forever! Happy Raksha Bandhan!
