"I feel guilty when I rest", Actress Nam Bo Ra opens up about the difficulties of being the oldest of 13 siblings


Actress Nam Bo Ra opened up about her hardships on Channel A's 'Oh Eun Young's Golden Counseling Center'.

On the October 29 broadcast of Channel A's 'Oh Eun Young's Golden Counseling Center', Nam Bo Ra confessed, "I feel so anxious when I am not working, and I can't rest." She then explained the burden of the responsibility she holds as the oldest daughter of her thirteen siblings. She stated, "I feel guilty when I rest", and continued to say that even when she rests, she tries to take part in various hobbies such as soap making, getting a professional license in cooking, and more.

Nam Bo Ra also stated that after one of her younger siblings passed away a few years ago, she began to have thoughts of envy toward a computer that could have its system turned off with just one power button, and rest. She then revealed that she had wondered, "When is it my turn to rest?"

Hearing this, Dr. Oh Eun Young brought up the term 'should be complex' that many individuals in the modern society have. This complex causes a person to constantly feel pressured with the thought that they 'should be' a certain way, and are unable to naturally be themselves. Nam Bo Ra expressed that she also felt the symptoms of the 'should be' complex throughout her life.

She was on tv from a young age because of how unusual her family was. She basically raised most of her younger siblings, no wonder she feels such a burden.

Sometimes i dont understand this kind of parents..Like keep giving birth but give the responsibilities to take care of the younger children to the oldest .There's also one famiky features having 11 children. The oldest is 20 and the youngest 6 months..Then the oldest bathing ..cleaning and sending the younger siblings to school..The oldest attending school activities of her younger siblings.. Imagine still a student and but already the responsibilities of a mother..Then she move out ..then pass the responsibilities to the next..Just pity watching the older kids..stressed with the responsibilities at home and they complain of not having time of their own..And having no privacy inside the house coz of the younger sibs.
