Every one of us are built up with different characters, and these come to us in the situation and people we grow up with. So who do you think is your role model and why?

Hi dolmitta without trying to sound arrogant, I have to admit that I don't have any particular role model although there are so many people that I admire very much. I admired my father very much and I have inherited many of his characteristics while I have got most of my mother's genes (naturally) too. But I am my own person and my character is a mix of many I guess where I can get very angry one minute and be extremly kind and generous the next minute. I can never hold a grudge for more than a minute but at the same time I'm very careful about whom I get close to. I'll go out of the way to do things for those I care about but can't abide deceit and hypocracy. I am most of the time a very lazy person, but when I put my mind to doing something, I'll not stop until I have completed it successfully. I would have loved to be someone like Mother Theresa, but God has not given me that kind of absolute unselfish character. So here I am, neither very good or very bad and that's completely me, and not a role I have fashioned on any other person I know.

Hi dolmitta My mum is definatly my role model. My parents got divorced when I was 10 and I have 2 older brothers. She did a great job of bringing us up on her own. I am now on my own with my three kids and often use my mum as an example and look to her for advice and help. She is there for me when I need her and I hope I will be around for when my kids need me most!

Hi dolmitta for me I don't know who my 'role' model really is as my childhood wasn't good and nether my teenage years, during those times there wasn't a role model in my life really, I had to grow up quickly so guess the only person who has been mine is me!..LoLo
