I was not running away from anyone or anything, I was running to my future, as I look back now. Things happen to every one every day, what should matter is ourselves and what we think about our life. Granted, parents do the best with what they can in raising their kids. No one is given a book on how to be the ideal parent; parenting is a hard job and one not to be entered lightly. I did the best I could with what was available to me at the time.
In this paper I will discuss how she inspired me and in a moment I pulled myself together that I should fulfill my lifelong dream, make her prod and there is nothing that should stop me. I strongly believe that failure is not an option for me in life and I want to carry this message to my child as she grows. I am at a point in life where I look at my life and my future with a very serious and subjective point of view. I was lucky to marry my best friend, the love of my life and the most amazing man and we share a beautiful daughter. Being a mother has been truly a wakeup call and a sincere motivation to continue my education.
Loyalty really says it all about an individual because it gives security and trust. With a loyal person, you do not have to worry about what they would or if they have your best interests at heart. The person in my life who has helped shape my values is my mother. My father left when I was toddler and it was her that set most of the values I now try to implement in my own children. Growing up and watching her and the way she handled situations has taught me a lot.
My parents have taught me right from wrong in many of ways from not to lie, to treat others like you want to be treated and to respect your elders with respect as well. With these morals and values that my parents taught me, my life will be easier to stay on a straight and narrow path for what is going to happen in the future. My parents have worked all their life to supply and support the family the decided to have and they have instilled that into me for when the time comes when I decide to have a family and I want to support my family like my parents did for me and to make sure they succeed in life like I am. My parents have pushed me to make sure to stay in school and get a degree because back then it wasn’t the “thing” to do. My parents went to some college but ended up getting jobs and starting a life.
When I had very bad grammar she would correct it and tell me the right way to say it. My mom takes the place of my father most of the time since he is an absence in my life. To me she is more than a mother, she is a father figure. Every day she pushes me to do better in everything I do. She teaches me how to treat a girl and show respect.
It is nice to know that I can go to them with a problem and they always have time to listen. But the most important influence in my life is my family. We are very close and I know they will always be there to support me, just as they have been in the past. My parents have always taught me to be kind to others and treat people the way I would like to be treated. They have encouraged me to be independent and to be myself.
I can accept things even if they aren’t meant to be, because she has shown me how to have strength and overcome adversity and the toughest times throughout life. She is also one of the people in my life I trust the most, I have had times where I have been betrayed and let down by people in my life. In my eyes in order for trust to be earned, worth and integrity must be proven over time, and the only person I can say who has proven that to me in my life is my mother, I have shared things with her most people would have told their best friends, because their mother would just not understand. She has never let me down and has proved to me I can trust her with everything. Support is one of the biggest things you need in life.
