Elder sister struggles aap kiya jaanein


People think that being eldest is the best thing ever. You’re your parents’ favorite child and you get to enjoy all things first hand but stop right there, it’s a whole lot of work being the eldest like all the zimaydaris, and taking care of your siblings like you’re the mom, etc.

Here are some more struggles you can relate to if you’re the elder sister:


1. You cannot casually do mistakes in life because tum sab se barri ho ghar mein

You’re always supposed to be the sane and intelligent one because your parents actually worked on you.

4. The moment you turn 20 your shaadi becomes the topic of every family conversation
