I’ve never had any role models. I don’t exactly know why but I just don’t have any. The first time I wanted to be somebody was when I was in primary school and my teacher was a nun. I wanted to be a nun. I’m not exactly sure why but it’s maybe because she was pretty and had a very soothing voice. And maybe coz she looked so clean.
I think people have role models coz of 2 things:
#1 People aim to be like somebody else, good or bad.
#2 People feel like they’re going to succeed if they become a better version of their role model.
I think role models are OK to have. It’s quite good to have someone to look up to for reference in what to do or what not to do. It really depends on the person. I don’t know…well for me it works well not to have role models coz I’ll be fucked pissed whenever my role model would do stupid stuff.
I just really feel that people mask their envy against successful people and try to make it as a positive thing by labeling the person that they envy as their “role model.” The person that made up that word is quite smart ei.
