I never had a role model as a kid, nor as a teenager, and still not now as an adult. I always wanted a strong woman to look up to. A woman who had overcome it all to become successful and independent through her own hard work and determination, who was also highly intelligent and self-confident. Now as an adult, this is an idea I need to let go of. My expectations of other people were too high, impossible.
Instead, I need to become this woman myself. I realized that she is who I wanted to be all along. I’ll become this person myself, and I believe that I can. Maybe some day I can be someone else’s role model.
