Who is your idol?

Postby Arale » Fri Jul 29, 2005 3:01 pm

Who is your idol in life? My idol is my Grandmom. She was the most wonderful woman in the world, at least in my eyes. I learnt many good things from her life and I know, though how hard I try, I can't fully understand why she was so great like that. I no longer can live with her but her image is always in my mind and heart. I try to live a good life like her. I know I'm a happy girl because I had a wonderful time living with her. Time can't fade my childhood's beautiful memories. :wink:

Every single person in my family (well, exept one person, but I ain't going there.)
My grandma: she's the string that ties all people in the family together. She's the one who makes us feel family always comes first, and you can't choose anyone over a family member.
My mom: she's gone through a lot in her life. What she has done for my grandma and us earns the respect of everyone who knows her.
My uncle: the most generous and intelligent person I have ever come across.
My other uncles and aunts: they're my moms and dads.
My siblings and cousins: two simple words, my world.

I don't believe in Idols... I mean it's cool to have one but I'm just the kind of person who actually admire a lot people but don't have any particular idol. I find it ok with me. I used to fancy Bono from U2 for what he did about the poverty and charity stuff and his music but in the end it faded away. I guess my family isn't good enough for me to find an idol there. I love them, but I want to be better than them. It's not that I am so fond of myself or something. But the whole thing with having and idol is a bit funny for me. It reminds me of all these little girls who want to be just like Britney Spears... or I dunno Avril Lavigne... The most important thing is to don't forget to be the way you are... just the way you are...

Illusion, that's the same for me. I don't have an idol, either. Not even a family member. I don't even think about that. And, just like you, I do love my family, but I wanna be better than them too. I don't wanna be like somebody else. I wanna be just me.

i have a few persons that have "marked" me in some way, but i wouldn't call them idols cuz it doesn't mean i want to be like them. these people are mainly my father and a teacher i had last year, he wasn't only a teacher, he was an educator and he really showed me a lot of things about life. and yes, i have/had "idols" in music cuz they write things that make me think and i identify a lot with them but they have always deceived me :(

an idol to me is not a person that i try to be just like him,a versionof him, but a person who i think is a good or maybe a perfect one , so the idea is that i just try to follow his steps in being a good guy or to follow his steps in order to succeed in a certain job and not to have the same opinions or thoughts,,no one want to be a version of the other, each one of ushas his own characterand his own point of view ,so i should say that my idol is both my dad and mom

i don't have idoLs nor do i believe in 'em:roll: .. since they're defined as an image used as an object of worship or false god.

i definitely don't worship anybody except my God...

i instead have inspirations/or roLe modeLs as far as the topic is concerned...

and i am bound in the belief that i am myseLf..
i can be influenced by other people but i get to decide if i'd want to be influenced by them..which makes me just the way i want myself to be...

my mom is my roLe-modeL.. i wouLd love to foLLow her positive asPects.. :wink:

3 idol,
someone who is adored blindly and excessively

Perhaps your God is and idol... do you really worship it??


I think anyone who has idols is stupid, any action made excessively involves a stupid behaviour... and as Forrest Gump says... :D
So check out if you people really have idols or only people you like a lot. :P
You can help me with my English by telling me my mistakes in a private message. Thanks :)

:wink: Well said. To me, an idol is someone who you have all your respect, love, admiration, and maybe a path for you to follow if you're going on the wrong track of life like getting in trouble with the law and stuff. However, if you're a strong person who have your own will-power to be in charge of your life, your idol will just be someone who you love, respect, and admire for what that person has done in his or her life.
