Only Child=boring?Being an only child is sometimes the exact opposite of what people think is.When I say I'm the only child in the family,I'll get reactions like "OMG.YOU'RE SO LUCKY!!!" or "I BET YOU GET EVERYTHING YOU WANT!!" or even things like "SPOILT I'M SURE." I could say I agree with those 3 but yet,I disagree.
Lucky?Well yeah sure.I don't have to share anything with anyone.I get a room to myself.I don't need to cut my fish and chips in half to share with my little sister or brother.But,I feel anything but lucky (sometimes).I look at my friends with siblings in utter jealousy.When they've got a relationship problem,they could always run to their older brothers or sisters who are ever ready with the best advices and loves in the world for them.As for me who have I got to run to?My parents?Well,being the raw age that I am,I don't even feel comfortable to talk to my parents about relationships.And plus,they're so protective they're not even allowing me to be in one.I feel so envious when siblings have got their little secrets or private jokes with one another and laugh all the time when they're in the train while I'm stuck listening to my mp3 keeping silent in a corner on the train.
The statement "I bet you get everything you want" is something that I utterly detest.The statement's not very true if you come from a middle-income family who struggles from paycheck to paycheck.I do get everything I want.Like 2 months later.If I want a certain bag,I've gotta wait.Till like maybe end of the month?I don't get things on the spot.I don't get to make things the way I want them to be.I feel so hurt sometimes by that statement.Like as if their heads,all only children are like Paris Hilton or something (who is btw,not an only child.)
Being an only child is sometimes really nothing fun.All you do is stare at this four walls around you when your parents are not home.You don't have a sister to go out to the movies with or an elder brother to pamper you.
Maybe I should convince my parents to adopt!Haha,okay maybe not.They wanted to do that last year but changed their mind and I was kinda hurt.Cause I was really hoping for one.
Well,guess you just gotta be happy with you got.Cause afterall,everything happens for a reason.
