    Role Models?

    Advertisements
    While doing my PG Requests, Kaity requested my role model!
    I actually froze.
    So my question to everyone is
    Do you have a role model?
    If so who is your role model? and why?
    What do you look for in a role model?
    What do you think makes someone a good role model?

    and finally.. Am I weird for not having one?

    I don't have a role model but there are aspects of different people I admire and would like to emulate. My parents are big ones for me. But I'd like to be my own person

    You're not weird. I don't have one either.
    I used to admire my oldest sister a lot and I still do a great deal. I always wanted to be like her. In general, I try to model myself after the people I encounter who are happy, positive and seem to be doing well. I always take note of when people do things that make me feel good, and I try to pass it on in most of my actions.

    I don't really have a role model. I do look up to a lot of the women in my family and try to learn from their examples and good qualities.

    I don't have a specific role model but I do admire many people for their positive characteristics and try to emulate them.

    "The purpose of life is not to simply be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well."

    Yay! I don't feel like a weirdo anymore. I agree with admiring others positive features. But I've never looked to someone and thought I want to be like them. I've always been content just be how I am.

    My mom.

    When she and my dad divorced, my dad told her that she was nothing, stupid, and she would never become a nurse. Now she's a very successful nurse practitioner/diabetes educator. She's worked her ass off to make sure that I had everything I needed in life. I'd consider myself successful if I can be half the mom that she is.

    I've never had a role model at all. There are people I admire but I wouldn't say I model myself after them.

    i can think of a few people. but they're all men. bad?
    they're all people who have been really constructive to me over the years, and have made a serious attempt at understanding me, which most people don't. and i look up to them because they've gone through the things i've gone through and are now at a stable, happy, at peace place in their lives, and they've convinced me, intentionally or not, that i can get there and have the same successes.
    i dunno. it's hard to explain, that last paragraph makes it sound like there's some horrible turmoil in my life or i'm unhappy. there really isn't anymore, i'm just unsettled and trying to figure out how i balance in an adult life, ya know?
    emotional rambling. okay i'm done. sorry for being vague.
