What has been the biggest influence on your life? What did it teach you?

    At some point in time everyone has been influenced by one thing or another. We've all had those moments in life where we absorb something that sticks with us and determines what kind of person we become, or will eventually grow up to be, and the type of things we do.

    So my question is, what person, place, or event had the biggest influence on your life? Can you recall that one thing(or multiple things) that had a dramatic affect on your life?

    It could come from anywhere: A parent, a close friend, mentor, a particular event, and even sometimes, videogames, movies, or some other type of media outlet.

    What thing(s) influenced the course of your life the most?

    My dad. It wasn't direct, but seeing him playing the piano so darn well even when he never even had proper lessons in his life always encouraged me to practise playing my piano harder, even when I was about to give up. (Piano isn't exactly the biggest factor in my life, but I still do love playing the instrument...)

    My grandfather. He taught me everything I know, and if it wasn't for him, I would never have made it this far.

    My dad. For the first for years of my life, he spent every second he could teaching me. Without that, I wouldn't be as smart, and it makes me want to do the same when I have a kid.

    My grade 5 teacher. I'm currently in grade 7, and a man from a different school was coming to teach our school about "leadership" and I hated it. The only people anyone paid attention to were the popular two-faced kind of kids. I just told a teacher I was leaving, because I'd rather not be ignored when I shouldn't be. My grade 5 teacher found me. He taught me about self-confidence. Difference from the usual be your self lecture is that he treated me like I was, not like everyone else does (which is stupid, ugly, useless) and told me that regardless of what others think, I need to remember that I am strong, smart, well-rounded, and just overall good sort of things. And then he went on to talk about this sort of popular vs unpopular thing will continue until around grade 10, when they start to mature and realize they've been jerks for more then 12 years.

    My mother and uncle taught me to be a good person, the deaths I have experienced made me not as happy all the time, when I found out my friends I had were never even friends so yeah no friends now, when I met my uncle and found out WOW I font ever want to live that way, and animals teaching me there can always be hope if you look closely enough and carefully enough for it
