Role Models

I have found that

role models that I’ve never met in real life

aren’t role models at all,

only people who I think are good at what they do

but no one I should model myself after

because they are good at what they do

and I should be good at what I do

not at what they do.

I have found that

role models that I see everyday

are the best role models

because they are not only role models

but they are people who care about me

and I care about them.

I can see their daily struggles

and not just the ones the camera catches.

I can talk to them and they can talk to me

So I want to thank you

all my role models,

but especially the ones

who know me and love me personally

because you have had a personal hand in making me, me

so thank you for being you, the real you

  1. i have had a great big part of your development, I am sure that I have been a model of what is good and kind in a person but also things that you do not want to ever do. I am happy to see how strong and kind you have become…. but we are forever developing…. hopefully for the better. With each person that you meet in life- take on the good characteristics and leave off the bad.
