6 Signs You're The Kourtney Kardashian Of Your Family, aka The Queen
As wacky as the Kardashians can be, you have to admit, their family life is ridiculously relatable. They fight, they spy on one another, they tease each other's significant others, they bond over how out of touch with reality their mother is. They're essentially just like any other family, except, you know, unthinkably wealthy and with way more Instagram followers. Because of that, I strongly believe that every family has a Kim, a Kourtney, and a Khloe, and as the oldest daughter in my own family, I definitely identify as the Kourtney. Are you the Kourtney Kardashian of your family? It's a hard life to live, but someone has to do it.
After all, it's not easy being the firstborn. Your younger siblings always have a way easier life and your parents get considerably more lax on the rules. You had to wait 'til you were 17 for a cell phone? Your little bro got one when he started middle school, didn't he? Cue eyeroll. Although you're the only one in your family who knows what it's like to be an only child, you are paying for those years when it was just you, Mom, and Dad tenfold.
But you don't necessarily have to be the oldest person in your family to be the Kourtney. If you can answer yes to more than a few of any of the following six questions, you're probably the Kourtney, too.
Are You Expected To Be "The Responsible One"?
I'm not just talking about the chores when you were younger. You're basically the glue that keeps your family together. You're the one who encourages your siblings to stop fighting, you're the one who calls everyone out when they need to be taken down a peg, and if Mom needs help with anything, you're the one she turns to.
Are You Way More Low-Key Than Your Siblings?
While your sisters are out at club events and on dates, you're at home, thinking about how you'd like to redo your living room before turning in early. And no one understands how fun that is for you.
Do You Roll Your Eyes At Everything Your Family Does Or Says?
Since you're the levelheaded one, you've discovered that everyone else is far more dramatic than you are. It's fine, you let them do them, but that doesn't mean you aren't totally judging them.
Does Your Family Constantly Bug You About Getting Married?
You may not feel like getting married, but they pressure you anyway.
Are Your Younger Siblings All Taller Than You?
Being older doesn't always mean being taller, especially when one of your youngest sisters is a supermodel. NBD.
Do You Truly Love Your Family, Despite (Or Maybe Because Of) All Their Antics?
They may drive you crazy, but you'd still do anything for them.
