I Never Liked It..
As a kid I always begged for a brother or sister. I felt like I was missing out on something. My Mother was unable to have children, which was something I never understood when I was younger. I always wanted a little sister who had a name that matched mine.. like Tara & Sara or something like that. (My name is neither of those, but you know what I mean.) As I got older I didn't mind as much, I had my own space & time alone, which is very important to me. We had a relative move in who was 4 years older than me & then a friend of his moved in as well.. it was like having 2 brothers, they lived with us for 3 years. I don't hear much from them anymore though & that makes me sad, since we were very close when I was younger.
The only thing that upsets me now about being an only child is when my parents pass away, I will be all alone. I will have my husband (hopefully I'll have one by then) & maybe kids to be there for me.. but, it still worries me to be alone having to do all of those things that come along with a death.. but, hopefully I'll be a strong person by then who can take it all on!
