Role Model Material
Sometimes we get so wrapped up in our lives that we don’t realize that our actions have an effect on others. Some of us may have siblings, children, or young people around us and they watch and pick up on our habits. However, many of us consider that and live our lives like someone is watching.
Growing up my friend was almost always in trouble, she was constantly grounded for doing something. She grew out of his trouble-maker ways, but her little sister picked up right where she left off but she’s taking it a step further. My friend doesn’t seem to understand why she’s acting out, even though she knows where she got it from.
In a way we all are or will be role models to someone, and they learn from our triumphs and mistakes. Even though they may not live their lives exactly like we do our actions are being noticed. So in my friend’s case, her sister saw her getting into trouble growing up and as a result she is doing the same.
Being someone’s role model is an influential and fulfilling role in someone’s life. That person looks up to their role model for guidance about their life. So it’s up to us to decide in which direction do we want our lives to lead them.
