Alecia, be glad that you are an only child. The only child is the BEST and MOST UNIQUE birth orders around. Only children do not have the drama that the other birth orders have.
Wrote a hub on this subject. You have stated quite succinctly the travails in the lives of oldest children in the family.
I definitely feel your pain. The oldest child is the most difficult and taxing of all birth order. Oldest children are often the ones who bear the blame if younger siblings act up and often the most punished. Oldest children must be on 24/7/365
There is nothing wrong with being an only child. This birth order is one of the freest and most individualistic. You are indeed blessed. It is quite unfortunate that this sibling culture makes only children seem to be "lacking".
