Okay, I am an only child. I have always wished that I could have had siblings. Of course, I enjoyed my parents attention only on me when I was little. But from the teens on, I dreamed of a brother or a sister. Now at 47 I am certainly over it.
Now, I come to terms with the responsibility of being an only child. Of taking care of my parents as their caregiver, financial advisor and their loving daughter. It's really hard sometimes but I am truly grateful. As it has shown me how to love deeper and on many levels especially with my own family.
Are you an only child too? How do you handle it all? Are you lonely sometimes, too? I'd love to hear how you deal with it everyday.
