Growing Up With Siblings | Being The Eldest Has Its Perks

Once Upon A Time, Malaysia

being the eldest

Sometimes being the eldest is not so bad.

I used to hate being the eldest. Scratch hate. I detest it.

Being the eldest comes with a great responsibility. My parents would expect just the best from me nothing less than an A when it comes to school grades and frankly speaking, those expectations wore me down sometimes.

Well, not anymore.

Growing up and maturing a little bit I can see that being the eldest helped me shaped my personality and of course, the advantages of being the firstborn is not something that I could deny.

Growing Up With Siblings | Being The Eldest Has Its Perks

1. PARENTS OUT, BIG SISTER IN

If my parents were outside (working etc), the one who rules the house is me. For start, the remote control is in my hand, the privilege of sitting in the comfiest and strategic couch near the tv is mine and of course,

2. ORDERING THE YOUNGER ONES AROUND

I couldn’t imagine the situation where I’d have a brother/sister ordering me around to do chores. Just thinking about it makes my skin crawl.

3. THE WINNER IS ALWAYS MOI

Obviously.

4. HAND-ME-DOWN WHAT?

I could think of many more advantages but I’m so lazy right now so maybe you guys could add some.

  1. I’m the eldest too but I guess my siblings look more like the elder one. They sometimes ordering me to do something too. Hahaha.. Sometimes I’m ok with it but sometimes I’m not. Hahaha.

    The best part of me for being the eldest and petite because people thought that I am the youngest. Hahaha.
    My siblings are taller than me so yeah that why I guess I’m being the eldest is the best hahaha =p

  2. I’m the eldest too and yeah, ordering around is so good that I even question myself am I that lazy or what. Nonetheless, the responsibility is there but I never thought it as I am responsible but more like I have to do this because I want to care for them. Like be success etc etc, I like it that I can get the chance to show my siblings how far they can go. Your choice of gif is so on point.

    1. I tried to find the suitable gif to match the post.
