I was afraid my mother. Now, however, when I feel discouraged by my problems, I overcome this by trying to remember my mother keep the strict hand over me. I gained a lot of from her. My mother was an elementary school teacher who very strict, she taught a lot of excellent student, and she was a Buddhist, she was always doing volunteer to help people in need. My mother is and will always continue to be a role model as a mother. She always stands by my side, and whenever I fall down, she encourages me to stand up by myself and on my own feet.
She has influenced my life by teaching me lessons and showing me the right behaviors and wrong behaviors. I will remember forever that my mother taught me to be an honest person, how to love person by sharing and giving , and not to give up. One of my mother’s powerful influences was that she taught me to be honest with peoples, and she taught me that being honest would made me happy for the rest of my life. My mother was a teacher. She required all of her students be the honest persons, so she always be a role model as a teacher.
I remember one time when I was eight years old, I played with the neighbor in my house. I accidentally broke the flower vase which my mother very liked. When my mother asked who broke it, I was very scared. I did not tell her the truth. I said it was not me break it, I thought maybe the cat did it. Later my mother found out the truth from my neighbor and asked me about it in calm way, and she told me she really did not mind I broke it. She required that I never lie to anyone and never lie to myself.
She showed me that most of the bad situation in the world began with a lie. When a person steals something, he lies to the law, or when a husband cheats on his wife, he lies to his wife. My mother often tells me that being a man means facing the truth. I always think back on those words when I get into trouble. Another value that my mother taught me was how to love people by sharing and giving, and that it would help me have a happier and better life. My mother was a Buddhist. She liked to help people, and she donated every year though she did not rich.
She always said can help people in need is the happiest thing in the world. I remember when I was child, I was a selfish person. One time I was six years old. My five years old cousin was sick. She wanted my fluff panda, otherwise she did not eat the medicines. I did not share my toys with her, so my mother taught me to consider everyone as a part of my family and taught me how to love people by sharing and giving. At last I gave my fluff panda to my cousin, so she ate the medicines on time every day, and she was well in two days. At that time I felt happy.
Now I believe that one of the biggest dreams in life is to buy someone something he really needs and watch his facial expression. I really understood why my mother like to help people. Finally, my mother taught me in anything I do not to give up, and that it was the most important thing to help me become the successful person. I remember when I was thirteen years old, I wanted register for the best middle school in my city, but I had to do well on the final exam. At that time I lacked confidence in myself. My mother taught me did not give up.
She said If I make more effort, success in the sight. My mother supported me and helped me to make the schedule of study, and searched a lot of exercises for me to do. However I study hard. At last I was accepted into that middle school. I believe my mother’s ideas. If I plant perseverance, I will reap victory. And now I came to the United States and started my new life, the different culture and second language is a big challenge for me . When I have the difficult time, I always think about the good advice from my mother. It helps me to have a better life.
