Most people assume that you’re selfish because you’re an only child. But that’s not true. There’s a difference between prioritizing your needs and being selfish. You are one of the kindest people out there once others get to know you. You will help anyone who asks you to lend a hand without thinking twice–unless it’s going to interfere with your own morals or an important piece of your schedule. You aren’t going to apologize for taking care of your own mental and physical health. You aren’t going to let anyone order you around or guilt trip you into doing something that makes you uncomfortable. You understand that you can be generous and kind while also making sure your needs get met.
Most people assume that you’re bossy because you’re the oldest child. But you aren’t going to scream and shout to get your way. You make an excellent leader, but only when other people want to put you in charge. You aren’t going to tell others how to live their life or what they’re doing wrong without being asked. But you’re always willing to step up and take charge when others need you. You have a good head on your shoulders and keep calm under pressure, so you’re great at coming up with plans and keeping everyone on track.
Most people assume that you are starved for attention because you’re the middle child. But you know your own worth and don’t need anyone to tell you how important you are. Validation is wonderful when you get it, but it’s not something you need in order to feel good about yourself. You don’t need anyone else to keep you entertained either. You enjoy your own company. You can have a great time with or without anyone else around. You’re way more independent than most people realize. You can take care of yourself and will be happy doing it.
Most people assume that you are entitled because you’re the youngest child. But you don’t expect anyone to hand you anything. You are willing to work hard for what you want. You are going to put in the effort and the time without a second thought. Although you wouldn’t say no to a relationship where you’re spoiled, you don’t expect your partner to do more than you. You want to keep things equal. You want to give as much as you’re receiving because you are much more selfless than most people realize. You enjoy being generous as much as you enjoy being pampered.
Most people assume that you are clingy because you’re a twin and are used to being around someone else, but you are perfectly comfortable spending time alone. You aren’t going to grow overly attached to friends or partners because you are independent and can take care of yourself. You don’t need someone holding your hand at all times. In fact, you prefer some privacy. You don’t want anyone on top of you all the time or you’re going to feel suffocated. You need space, just like anyone else.
