Being a twin is not always easy, especially when people constantly compare you to your other half and expect you to be the same in every regard. A young woman and twin sister recently inspired many people after sharing how she has managed to follow her bliss despite the fact that her sister done better than her in a shorter period of time than she did - academically that is.
The sad part about being a twin
"Biological sisters, identical twins, same upbringing, same guidance yet different success timeline. My twin sister and I passed our matric the same year and both decided to pursue engineering courses, my sister finished her diploma while I was still striving for mine.
Learning from their differences
"It was likely for me to feel like a failure when my sister progressed before me, but that wasn’t the case, we understood that we’re two different individuals with different interests and different destinies and our success timeline is bound to differ. I applause my sister in her wining she does the same in mine," she wrote.
Light at the end of the tunnel
The young woman then went on to explain how she is the proud owner of a national diploma in engineering while her sister is an advanced diploma graduate. Despite this, she is proud of where she is and will not let her sister's success feel any less of herself because they are both unique even as identical twins.
