Definitely the Black Sheep
I grew up in a family in which the paternal side was full of high achievers. I'm close with my mom and dad, and for a long time with my oldest brother, but our closeness came to an end a long time ago when he got married. My other brother and I were never close but we tolerated each other, and oddly enough, we seem to be communicating more. The rest of my family, cousins and such, all did what was expected of them and have good careers with good pay and good family values with a house, 2.3 kids and a dog. It's the all American family and I just don't fit in.
I went to college but was unable to finish due to financial aid problems. I have jobs, not a career, and despite my trying to having a child, that dream was taken away from me for whatever reason God had. At family functions, I feel alone. I hate knowing that at some point, one of my cousins, or aunts or uncles, is going to ask me what I'm doing now. My answer is never good enough and often the butt of many jokes.
One of the reasons I was so anxious to move away from my family, to a whole new state, was so I could not be anywhere in the radar. Nobody would know anything about my life other than what I tell them. I miss my family, but I like my independence and my self-esteem better.
