8 Things Responsible Siblings Are Tired of Hearing
If you tell us to lighten up one. More. Time...
Freeform

Eldest or not, being the sibling blessed/cursed with the responsibility gene can be such a bummer. You just want the best for your brothers and sisters, but sometimes (or most of the time!), they take it the wrong way. Alec Lightwood from Shadowhunters finds this struggle very real—he just can't help but worry about his sister Isabelle and adoptive brother Jace, who seem to make it their life's mission to cause trouble, at least from Alec's POV. While these lines are all made up, we bet Alec and his kindred spirits—Shadowhunters and Mundanes alike—can relate to these!

  1. "Lighten up!"

    Well, sorry for caring about you enough to worry about you.    
  2. "Where's your sense of adventure?"

    Right here, chillin' with my common sense.
  3. "It can be our little secret."

    Thanks, but no thanks.
  4. "Don't tell me what to do. You're not mom."

    Do I have to give birth to you to have the right to be concerned for your safety?
  5. "I'm older than you, you know."

    So you should know better, shouldn't you? 
  6. "You're such a know-it-all."

    No, I just know what's best.
  7. "Don't you ever get tired of being responsible all the time?"

    Shadowhunters

    Yes, I do get tired, and you're not making it easy.
  8. "I'm sorry, you were right."

    Nope, never going to get tired of hearing this! As a thank-you, we'll keep the I told you so to ourselves. You're welcome! 

You can stream Shadowhunters on Netflix.
