If you are a Middle child, please stand up!

I am a middle child, and before you ask…YES I am the TYPICAL middle child. Typical=SEX, DRUGS and ROCK n ROLL. Just kidding, just kidding. I only exhibit rebellion in small forms. I usually never listen to what “wiser people" may share, I pretty much want to figure things out on my own. I feel that it is a very good thing that I want to have my own experiences, but of course with that comes consequences for my actions. I inevitably know that what I decided to do (much to the dismay of my family) is probably not the best thing for me. However, some of my impulses prove to be rewarding and beneficial to the “making of a superstar.” I impulsively decided to go to Europe as a teenager (with my school of course). I also followed with a study abroad trip to Italy in my college years. Of course bad decisions were made along the way, but I would not trade those experiences for anything. I am also infamous for making poor relationship choices, but I am discovering that because of those choices I have started to learn a lot about myself. I have started to make myself the person I want to be, and it was because of all of my experiences combined. I know I will inevitably make bad decisions throughout my life, but I am pretty sure that God will use those experiences to make me a better person. I am excited to see where life takes me in the future, I have a feeling it will be pretty great!


  1. Oh , Jennie. You are a middle child. But I, personally, think that it is part of what makes you so fun and charming! Those experiences make you the person you are today. I am glad you are taking a positive outlook :D

  2. what if saying that you will inevitably make bad choices will actually lead to you making bad choices ... what if you just chose to believe that you will make good choices? What if you quit labeling the choices as good and bad or right and wrong and just believed that each choice is the best choice you can make with the knowledge and experience that you have?
