You may be the youngest, or the only boy or girl, and were doted upon. It’s left you with self-be­lief and the knowl­edge that your fam­ily will al­ways be there to sup­port you. They ac­cept you un­con­di­tion­ally and, as an adult, you know you can turn to them for ad­vice or prac­ti­cal and fi­nan­cial help. This safety net lets you take risks and fol­low your dreams, and ex­plore cre­ative pos­si­bil­i­ties in your work and per­sonal life.

How it holds you back: You can be chaotic and strug­gle with self-re­liance. You’re fussed over, which can feel claus­tro­pho­bic. You may be pa­tro­n­ised by older sib­lings, or on the re­ceiv­ing end of re­sent­ment be­cause of your ‘easy ride’. You can strug­gle with re­spon­si­bil­ity, which may get you into trou­ble at work, or have high ex­pec­ta­tions in re­la­tion­ships, and of­ten feel let down.

Los­ing the la­bel: Self-dis­ci­pline is key. Learn to man­age your emotions and think about the po­ten­tial con­se­quences be­fore you act. If your fam­ily is your over­draft, look at your spend­ing. Be­ing self-suf­fi­cient will also help you have more realistic ex­pec­ta­tions in re­la­tion­ships. Ask your­self, how can I take care of me?
