My family has influenced me to be exactly who I am today. They have shown me the paths that I do not want to go on, and the paths that I do. Every action that I make today, I think about how my parents would react before doing so. I’ve seen many people go down the wrong path and not even stop to think about how they are affecting their family. My little close knit family keeps me sane, even on my darker days.
My family never had the money to spoil me as a child, so instead of going out and partying with my friends all the time, I spent most of my time with my family. My family is the most important people in my life, and always will be. They have always been by my side through thick and thin, no matter what the obstacle is. Having such great parents inspires me to be the best person that I can be.
I have realized that being a family oriented person has helped me to grow up fast, and realize what is important for my future. I wish that everyone had the opportunity to be closer with their families, just so that they can see why I am so inspired to be better than I think I can be. I wouldn’t have made it to where I am today, without the constant influence to make my family proud of me. They will always be my biggest influence, and I wouldn’t want it to be any other way.
