Default Who in your life has taught you the most?

So up until today, who has been your biggest influence or teacher in your life? A parent? Sibling? Family? Actual teacher? Friend? Has anyone in your life made you say, "wow, I'll remember that."

For me? I have to think about it......

Hey, this an interesting thread... for me, I suppose it depends on the different things I learned.
My heart learned love and 💔 from different people... one became equally as important as another, if that makes any sense.
My brain learned from many people, but probably the most from my mean as a snake but genius stepfather who has very similar interests to mine.
That relationship was very challenging on many levels; though it was a very frightening relationship, somehow the pros outweighed the cons.
I am, however, very glad to have escaped from that part of my family.

My Mommom, I learned how to be open mined, a quiet rebel and not to take myself too seriously.

Most people are going to say a parent or relative. But my mom refuses to update her knowledge and I end up correcting her a lot of the time.
I have to say T.V. and such educational programs like 'In Search Of...', The Simpsons, The Travel Channel and any of those other documentary shows about the world and history. Oh, and I can't forget about shows like 'Brain Games', 'Canada's Worst Driver' and 'Scam City', among others.

Myself, though it seems rather egotistical to say so.

Default Re: Who in your life has taught you the most?

Several people had a role in teaching me, and forming who I am. 99.9 percent of those people exist in the books I've read. Their challenges, their determination, their personalities helped me put my own life into perspective, and grow from there. The other 0.1 percent is a professor I worked for about two years ago and my mother. They taught me that there's nothing wrong with my frame of mind, and there's nothing unusual about having a mental strength that can combat anything when I put my mind to it (no pun intended). If anything, I should be proud of that strength I have...

These percentages are most likely to change. I learn something from many people I interact with, and they're no longer from books.

I had a best friend on this earth for 25 awesome years, from all the way back when I was an impetuous teenager, whose love of life and love of our friendship taught me so much humanity.. I still learn from the authenticity of his compassion, even in his absence. It seemed to go both ways in this regard; we complemented each other in remarkably reciprocal ways, and I am deeply, deeply fortunate to have known him. He taught me the most. Miss him every day.
