I suppose it takes a certain amount of energy and patience to be a good Auntie but what it really takes is a listening ear. Young people want, and need, to be heard.
We live in this world together and we need to take care of each other. When you're young and in a hurry I get it... I really do. Sometimes, I still have to slow myself down and take a deep breath as a little old lady counts out her change or an elderly gentleman leaves his blinker on his car. It's not the end of the world.
The major difference between me and my sisters was that I had no inclination to marry at a young age. I was out having way too much fun exploring the world and all its offerings. I finally married at one month shy of age 35 and had my one and only child at age 38.
