"I hold four titles in my family tree"

 After thinking about where I am on the family tree, and after some diliegnt reserch, I found out that even though; I'm my mother's oldest child.   I'm also my grandmothers oldest grand child , but it doesn't just stop there.  I am  also the oldest niece, and the oldest cousin.  I huess that makes me old as dirt,but thta's okay becaus eeach itle is important .   I know each title carries certain rsponsibilties.

With being the oldest child , I have always tried to take care of my siblings the best of my ability. In being te oldest grandchild, everyone ooks up to me for help, advice and moral support. Being the oldest niece has it's responsiblities also, since everyone watches me and  how I live my life; I have to make sure I'm living a life they pattern themselves after. Last but least being the oldest cousin has it's responsibilites too, everyone come to me for advice and nformation , so I have to be compassionate, understanding and honest about all situations I'm involved with.  being number one in in every catergory is a big responsibility in my life, that I don't take litely; my life has always been under scrunity around the family tree.

I know my family love me and look up to me , I'm honored but I' no one special.  I do care about all my loved ones, and I want to make sure they're all healthy and happy in this big beautiful world of our.

t take litely

Although I'm the second to the oldest, I often live my life as though I am the oldest. Pretty much every one comes to be about their problems, sucesses, and concerns.

I'm not the oldest nor the youngest but a lot of the time the family call on me to complain or fuss about some of the others.I try to be there to keep things together but it's really stressful. Be thankful that they all look up to you.

I'm the oldest in my immediate family, so I get asked the most of, and I also am the scapegoat most of the time, even when I'm not at fault. Guess it comes with the territory.

How interesting - I'm the youngest in my family, so I have 'four' also.

My parents had children late in life and I'm the baby of my family. I never thought about it before but this makes me not only the youngest in my family but of all my first cousins, the youngest granchild, the youngest niece.

It's so true, the eldest feels the most responsible! I'm sure it took a lot of pressure off of me. But still I felt as a member of my big, wonderful, illustrious family I am equally obligated to do the right things. So I was pretty much a goody two-shoes - until I got 'grown,' you know like at age 16 when stupidity sets in.

This was a fun hub. Made me think - and SMILE!
