future parenting advice

if you ever have twins DON’T insists on having them in the same class. I know it seems cute and it was fun when I was little but now I am constantly being compared to my sister who has way better grades than me and the pressure on me is surreal. Not to mention that I literally share my whole social life with her it’s unhealthy and we never do anything without each-other. There has not been a day in my 17 year existence that I didnt see her. Even at sleepovers we were AlWAYS together. Don’t get me wrong; I am lucky and grateful to have someone like her but this really fucked me up because I can’t deal with being alone.
