Most importantly, my mom never let me sell myself short for anything, especially academics, because she has always seen true potential in me. In turn, her support and motivation kept my self-confidence high, keeping me driven towards being more successful. Both of my parents have impacted my life greatly to guide me down the path of life in the best way they know how. I have recognized my parents for what they have done to help me in my journey, and one day I hope to be successful enough to be able to take care of them both
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.
Many grow up to believe that a mother can do everything and anything but they don't see the process and sacrifices that it takes for a mother to do all of the things that she does. In "I Stand Here Ironing" the mother doesn't believe that she made enough sacrifices for Emily while she was a child and she believes that she was an active role in Emily's unhappiness while she was growing up. However, the mother doesn't realize that she sacrificed herself for Emily, she gave up her happiness, time and the role of a mother for Emily's wellbeing. The mother was nineteen at the time, yet she found a night job so that she could be with Emily in the daytime, "After a while a found a job hashing at night so I could be with her days, and it was better" (383). The mother also got persuaded into putting Emily in a convalescent home because it is said that "she can have the kind of food and care you can't manage to give her."
She showed me right from wrong and guided me and pushed me to do the right things in life and strive for success. As I grew up, my mom was always right by my side and accepted my dreams and wanted me to go out and pursue every dream I have. Looking back at everything my mom has taught me,
Growing up, my parents always made the sense of family and love known in our household. They have always taught my siblings and I to have respect. In my childhood, my parents were always there to support myself in whatever activity I may be participating and were one of my main sources of motivation, which I now realize was showing me unconditional love. Things have not always been great for us as a family, but having each other has helped us get through any conflict that has arose. About eight years ago, Solo Cup the business in which my dad worked at, closed down.
My mother tried to go to college at Ball State, but she barely finished a year before she decided it wasn’t for her. My father only did brief certification classes and/or tests; this was so he could get a better job or higher pay. Conventional college was not for him, in his words. I wasn’t sure if college was right for me because of my parents’ experiences. I was back to the “what do I want to be when I grow up?” thoughts, with no resolution in sight.
I started trying to be more like her, reminiscing about what she explained to me, comprehending it, and applying it to my life. The advice that she gave me shaped who I am today. Those valuable and irreplaceable lessons are a blessing to me. My mother is the smartest, strongest, and most goal-oriented person I have ever met. She taught me various lessons, and it is unconceivable to count or illustrate them all.
He showed me how to reach my dreams. This person means the world to me, so who is this influential person in my life? He is my one and only father. My father is a compassionate, hard working, team player, driven person, and I have gained those attributes from him, he has truly impacted my life more than once. My father has given my sister and I everything that we could possibly given.
My favorite part of being a sister is knowing I always have someone to annoy yet they still love and care for you the same at the end of every day. Even though I may not see or talk to all of my brothers and sisters I know that they will always be there for me whenever I need
However, this was one of the greatest moments in my whole life. Some people may have picked the first time they went to Disneyland or Universal studios,but not me. I chose a memory that I hold deeply in my heart not only because I love my Mom, but becaus she decided to step into my dad 's life and help take care of two young kids whose mom left them when they were young because of her own selfishness. Now, she deals with her own sorrow of never seeing her own kids ever again because of the wrong choices she made that were not only wrong, but brought hurt to my mom and dad and to us children. There were lots of tough times then, but now the future is bright and has ridded of the walls that stood in the way of our true happiness.
