Final Reflection

Who Am I/Who am I to my Family?

Being the youngest is fun, nice, relaxing, and crazy. It’s nice being the youngest because you get a lot of support, love, and attention. I mean what more can you ask for? When you’re emotional, “BOOM!” your older sisters are there for you to help you feel better, to make you laugh, and to give you advice. I don’t know how they do it all, but it works. All I have to do is ask them for help and they give it. Sometimes I feel that they don’t love me because they get me in trouble.  Afterwards, I realize that they do that because they love me and don’t want anything bad to happen to me. Even though I am the youngest, I am very overprotective of my older sisters. Even though Adela, the oldest, gets mad at me for being overprotective, I’ll always defend them and won't let anything bad happen to them. Maria, the middle sister, and I spend more time together and get along more than Adela, but I still love them equally. Another advantage I have being the youngest is that I get more things than my sisters. I think that it’s because I help my parents out more than they do. For example, I go to work with my dad sometimes and help him out at home when he needs help. When I help him at work or at home, he sometimes pays me because he says, “I’ve earned it and that I’m the only one that likes to help out.” Being the youngest is also relaxing because I don’t have as much pressure as my sisters do. They give me advice because they don’t want me to make the same mistakes they did. Even if the mistakes are tiny, they still give me the advice because they want to see me grow. All I have to do is take the advice and store it in my heart so I never forget.
