BEING THE YOUNGEST IN THE FAMILY SUCKS

It sucks being the youngest of four children in my family. I am constantly the one in the middle of the sibling rivalry. Because they always say ''your the youngest you must do this'' or ''your the youngest so you must do that''. So, in the end I am the one taking all the crap.

I am also the only one who does not have a successful career, the one who is unemployed and the one with the awkward personality. Now I can even add aspiring writer to the list, which makes them joke and laugh all the time. I told my family I have a blog and only one member of the family (my oldest sister) told me that she was proud of me for trying my best at succeeding at my writing career. That she liked my blog and she thought it was a good idea. The other members of the family rolled their eyes and said ''what a stupid idea'' and ''as long as you don't mention me''.

They even laughed when I told them that I don't have anyone reading, following or even leaving comments on my blog yet. Ha! Ha! Ha! That sure gives you a good kick to the ego.

But I love writing and it is my escape away from the world. I am just sorry that the world who is so big, doesn't have space for a weirdo like me.

  1. They're a bunch of jerks unfortunately it isn't going to get better so it would probably be best to try to get away from them. Who needs a family that doesn't treat you with respect right?

  4. Don't worry. I am the youngest in my family too and I know just what you're talkimg about. My sister doesn't let any opportunity of making me feel poorly about myself. She's one of the reasons for my low self esteem and self confidence issues I deal with today. But I'm sure things will look up and so what if my family doesn,'t appreciate the person I am. I hurt so bad, but I will find someone someday who will appreciate me and my achievements. Keep going forward with your writing. Don't let them say you can't do it. They're nobody to decide what you're capable of. I'm with you! Best of luck. You'll be great.

  5. I know how you feel. I'm the youngest in my family, and it really sucks. People always think I get spoiled and can do whatever I want, but that's not true at all. I get the most trouble and blame, and I barely do anything bad. *sighs* Being the youngest definitely is not easy when no one listens to you and thinks you're too young to be smart or know anything. I admit I'm not as smart as my older siblings but treating me like I'm stupid does no better. I may not know a lot things they know but I know a lot things that I am interested in that they would have no idea of or be surprised I know it. So much for being the youngest child.

  6. Anonymous - Thank you. Don't let anyone make you feel like you can't do something. I know that we would like our family's approval, but you sound like an amazing person, so don't let them or anyone else tell you different. I think our own approval of ourselves and our choices is so more important.

    the-lighted-being - I agree! Just stay true to yourself and don't let anyone make you feel like you are not wonderful, because you are. You are amazing for being who you are and you should remember that. Being the youngest is a lot harder than people think.
