WHY I HATE BEING THE ELDEST SIBLING??

WHY I HATE BEING THE ELDEST SIBLING??
Spread the love

Being the eldest of 3 siblings is not such an easy task. Even though I was the centre of attraction for my parents, I was the first born after all, it is still not that easy. As time flew by, my siblings came into the picture, things were not rosy anymore. 

1. I should be obedient all the time
I am expected to be the epitome of perfection for my siblings. Parents as well as the society expects the eldest one to be the obedient one as they have the burden to set example for the younger ones.   

2. My Identity is lost
My every little move, small activity and action is compared to my parents. I am expected to live up to the standards set by them. It hampers my mental development and I feel burdened by their expectations. 

3. I should be well behaved
People fail to understand that the eldest one is also human. We are also born with a set of emotions and we are bound to falter. I am always expected to behave in a cordial manner despite the erratic behaviour of my siblings. This does get frustrating at times.

4. I am responsible for everything
People fail to understand that the eldest one is also human. We are also born with a set of emotions and we are bound to falter. I am always expected to behave in a cordial manner despite the erratic behaviour of my siblings. This does get frustrating at times.

5. I am a duplicate parent
We study in the same school and it is the biggest drawback of my life. Teachers catch me anywhere in the school to complain about my siblings. I hope somebody tells them that they can directly complain to the parents, which would definitely have more impact than explaining the situation to me. I am definitely not doing anything about it.

P.S. I DO LOVE MY SIBLINGS!!!!
