The effect of a parent on one’s life is immense. A parent has profound effect on our lives and he/she becomes our role model.
He is a person who we look up to. He is someone who inspires us and impacts our life in the most profound way.
We usually expect that person to guide us in the right direction and prevent us from deviating from our paths. The person who has had such an effect on my life is my father. My father is my closest friend and my first teacher. He has been the guiding light of my life always.
My father shares with me a very deep relationship which I consider to be a blessing. He is a very humble, intelligent and kind-hearted man who is loved by all for innumerable reasons. My father is a hardworking man and is the only person in the family who earns money. Despite the financial pressure and stressful profession, he still makes time for everyone in the family. All the major decisions in the family are taken only after consulting him. Even when his mind is pre-occupied, he tends to stay calm and talk rationally. This aspect of his personality takes everyone by surprise.
My Father’s Role in My Life:
The relationship I share with my father is too valuable to be put into words. My father has always been there for me right since my play school days. He is the person who pushed me to try everything in life and not to back away from anything that came as a challenge. His constant dedication towards my interests and hobbies motivated me to pursue the same with more enthusiasm. He came to witness all the football matches I was part of. I still can’t forget his emphatic voice from the stands whenever I got possession of the ball.
He used to carry a packet of glucose powder and fruits during my sports day so that whenever he got the chance, he would come running from the stands and hand me those items. His contribution to my studies is also worth mentioning. He reviewed my homework and I studied science and mathematics under him. I believe that the greatest virtues he taught me were discipline and punctuality. It is because of him that I complete my work in time and with utmost sincerity even today. He taught me not to give in to fear and to face every adversity with a clean and composed mind.
My father is a wonderful human being and a great dad. He made me strive to become a better person each day and he ensured that I did not fall prey to bad intentions. I still go to him before taking any decision in my life. His words and advises are still in my mind and I consciously follow the principles which he valued in life. I could not have asked for a better role model and guide than my father.
