So you think being the youngest in the family is all about having an easy life? Hahaha, actually no. What most people don't know is that being the family's bunso has also its fair share of struggles and problems. The sad thing? You can't even talk to someone about it in the family because, well, you're the youngest. But it's not always a bad thing to be a bunso, there are just some things that only you will understand.

 1  Being told to do things just because you're the bunso.

 2  Not being able to choose where to sit in the car when you honestly want to sit by the car window.

 3  Feeling major #FOMO when you go through your family's photos and you're not yet in them.
