If you are, how do you feel about being an only child? If you aren't, do you ever wish you were? I am an only child and it has never bothered me until last year. My dad passed away last yr and my mom sold the house and moved in with me. We don't have any other immediate family here and most of her friends haven't really being real friends since they are probably uncomfortable now that she is a widow. I started to feel so jealous of people that had big families or at least sisters and brothers. I also felt so much pressure because I felt like it was all up to me to make sure my mom was OK and I am ashamed to admit it, but I developed some resentment sometimes and wished that there was someone else would could take responsibility. It feels kind of lonley too now that my dad is gone and it is just me and my mom, and I wished that I had someone else close to my dad who can share memories and grieve with me the same way. Anyone else ever wished they had siblings?
