In the earth the first of anything has important. For instance, first fruits, first mention, firstborns just to name a few. However, the one that I’m really intrigued by happens to be firstborns. Mainly because I am one:) Just recently I heard a summary of a book call the Firstborn Advantage by Kevin Leman and it stunned me. This book exposed the beneficial personality traits of the firstborn as well as the negative aspects. Below is a taste.
– “Firstborns and those with a firstborn personality are often high achievers, business moguls, concert violinists and PTA presidents. But when they’re out of balance, they can also be overly perfectionistic, people-pleasing, driven and critical.” Sound like someone you know? You, perhaps? I believe every first born, first girl, first boy, only child and parent should read this book. It’s helped me connect some dots as to why I do what I do?
