My mother, my role model

Most people will claim that their mother is the best role model for every woman because she is understanding, patient,and sweet.  My mother’s best traits are polar opposites of those fine qualities. She is renown for her abruptness,  temper,  impatience. She believes in being honest at all times even if it offends someone. She detests laziness and has no patience for people who make excuses for their lack of drive or determination. She is very opinionated and will tell people exactly what she thinks of them or their behavior. She hates gossips and if she hears anybody talking bad about her or our family, she will confront them. My mother can sometimes be overbearing because she will tell me what to do or what she thinks even if I do not solicit her opinions.

My mother is my role model because she is amazingly strong, determined, and resilient. She has taught me the importance of being a woman with high morals and values. She has shown me to stand on my own feet and not be dependent on anyone for the success or failure in my life. My mother is extraordinary because she is a woman of substance, faith, and loyalty. I am proud to say that I am my mother’s daughter.

    Awesome essay. But I failed to understand the last line which says, “I am proud to say that I am my mother’s daughter. ” What do you mean by this?

    Roselin, thank you for actually reading the essay all the way to the end. What I mean by that is I am proud to say that I have inherited her best qualitites. I am learning that I am more like here everyday as I live my life, experience it’s ups and downs. For example, when I was a teen I would always say to myself that I would never be strict like her when I became a mother. Ironically, now that I am, I am worst than my her! My daughter accuses me of being too protective just like I had accuse my mom.
