When her career reached its apex, she dated creative, successful, handsome high-powered and high profile brothers.She was what I thought was the epitome of success at that time: a Buppie. ...ollowing in my sister's footsteps, I began learning from her experiences.Life will go on and probably surprise me as it does each day.
Confidence and independence also allow me to present myself in a genuine manner in... If I am a respectable individual, they will desire respectability.
Not only does this pressure keep me in line, but it keeps Meghan, Owen, Maddy, Gracie, and Anna in line.
Being the Oldest Child The oldest child plays an inimitable role in the structure of her family.
She has a propensity to be confident and often craves her independence at an early age.
Ever since I can remember, my big sister Barbara has been my heroine, my role model and, when needed, my substitute mother.
She's beautiful, sweet, intelligent, funny and loving.That's more inspirational to me than any Sunday sermon - as she is one who sincerely lives in the word, even when it's difficult for her. She's still my heroine and more evolved than I would be in her position: She has no bitterness towards the Missouri Synod, which still does not ordain women. I am beginning to discover what it means to have confidence and independence in moderation.Confidence can be beneficial in the sense that it permits you to say what you mean and mean what you say without worrying too much about the judgment of others. ..determined to do well in life, my siblings will hopefully be determined to do well also.Perhaps I grew up faster than most, but these “oldest child” characteristics have established the woman I am today: responsible, confident, and ready to set a respected example.I am well aware of who is watching me and I am blessed to have such accountability. I clear the path for my siblings in hopes that they learn from my illustration. Whether it will come to play in my life is completely out of my hands, but I don’t worry about it too much.As someone with a sister, I can attest to the fact that it is, indeed, amazing.Yes, they can be a bit of a pain sometimes (especially when you're dealing with a younger sister who just won't leave you alone when you're little) and of course, sibling rivalry just comes with the territory.Math problems can be completed without anyone else’s help and I know that I’ll figure out how to put this contraption together without the assistance of directions.This, “I can take care of myself” attitude enables me to be persistent in achieving various goals.
