There is a unique bond between an aunt and their niece not many of us know about.
An aunt does not play a motherly role, but a role more similar to that of a best friend or an older sibling. Her purpose isn’t to watch over your every move or get you in trouble if you don’t follow the rule book. She is there to share, laugh, advise, and guide you towards the right path in life.
And here are 6 crucial things every aunt wants their niece to understand.
1. You can share anything with her
No matter the situation, you can confide in her. She will not judge you nor give you lectures on what you should have done and how you should act. She was your age once too, and she understands the struggles you’re going through. She just wants to be there for you when you need someone to talk to. Your folks don’t need to know your secrets. She will tell you what she thinks but she will never judge you. You have a head on your shoulders and whether you want to accept her advice is entirely up to you.
2. She will always remind you of how much you mean to her
You never have to doubt your aunt’s endless love for you. She will call you to check how you are doing, and sometimes just to tell you how much you mean to her. She is your guardian angel and your best friend. Your connection is special and infinitely strong. Never miss an opportunity to remind her of how much she means to you too because she would step into the fire for you.
3. She gets you
When you are a teenager it seems like grown-ups just cannot get you. And we all feel this way when we are kids. But thankfully, your aunt knows what you’re going through and will guide you through these difficult years of development – you just need to let her be close to you.
4. She shows you the importance of enjoying life, while you’re still young
Your aunt lets you know that no matter what you do you should always look at the positive side of everything and try to have a good time while going through life. You have to live a life that suits your character and purpose. Life is short and you must do whatever you can to make it fun.
5. No matter what happens, she will always be there for you
Regardless of the path you chose in life, no matter how difficult things may get for you, your aunt will always have your back. If you need a place to stay or someone to talk to in times of despair, you can always count on her. And whatever you share with her, no matter how deep, you can count on her to keep it a secret.
6. She will always encourage you to be yourself
Your aunt will remind you that you are who you are and what others think of you should never put you down in any way. What matters is how you feel about yourself, and if you are happy with who you are you should never have to apologize for that to anyone.
