1. I do not resent my "chosen one" status. It beats being told to "get lost". Like the results or not, it represents a vote of confidence in my character and abilities, even if it has its origins in far less than altruistic reasoning by my siblings. Secondly, the fact that my parents accept my role in their lives does not leave me feeling too badly.
2. I am ashamed for them, but I do not dwell on it, as it would be like the story about the pig and the dancing lessons.
3. They have expected a lot less out of me and for a shorter period of time than my 5 siblings and myself expected from them.
