A pivotal person is someone who has had an impact on a life. The impact of a pivotal person can range between effecting a life in a positive manner or an negative manner. Pivotal people can be a family member, friends, or an acquaintance. I personally view pivotal people as a positive influence in life, changing a life for the better. My pivotal person is my mother because of the strength she has built into me, pushing me out of my comfort zone making me the social person I am today, and always supporting making me the best version of myself possible. First, my mother 's role in my life is significant to me because she taught and demonstrated to me at a young age how to be the strong woman I am today. One lesson she instilled into me was to…show more content…
An example being, to never settle for one friend group. By doing so I branched out socially, making friends from very different social groups. Example being, I fit in with the band kids, the jocks, the theater kids, and more. Another way my mother helped me grow to be a sociable person is by signing me up into clubs at a young age. By doing so I was pushed out of my comfort zone to try new activities as well as meet new people with common interest. To this day the friends I met at dance camp and art club are still some of my closest friends. By being pushed into an awkward environment, I learned how to be sociable and gain friends on my own.

Lastly, my mother always told me the odd kids were the most fun to be around. Which to this day I see myself as an “odd kid.” Being outcasted gave me a new friend group of other outcasted kids, kids who I fit in with very well. But learning how to get the courage to speak to new kids helped with my speech skills as well as my anxiety about speaking.

Since a young age, my mother has told me that the world is mine. That I can be whatever I want to be, and the only thing stopping my is myself. This support led me into many learning experiences and many directions in my life. For example, my younger self saw myself as a professional ballerina. I took ballet for six years. Over those six years my mother always supported me, did everything in her ability to get me to the highest level I could be. Suddenly my gears shifted and no longer did I enjoy ballet. My heart wanted to be a pediatric nurse. Fearful of how my mother would react I was reluctant to tell her, but when I gained the courage the overwhelming support reassured my doubts. My ambition in life has always been extraordinary since I was never doubted nor told I couldn’t. My future is a mystery. I could become a nurse, a professional dancer, a nascar driver, or even a pilot, but I know my mother will support me as long as a give it my all. My next example is how my mother lived a grateful life everyday. Growing up watching he forever happy even when the circumstances were horrible has taught me to cherish my time on earth. This has resulted into me living my life to the fullest, how I desire to live it. I do crazy things that I learn from but never regret. My outlook in life is no matter the circumstance, as long as I am breathing I 'm
