Alright well here’s something that most people don’t really know about me;
This man right here is named John Cena. He’s been a professional wrestler in the WWE since 2002. I think back in 2008 is when I started to become completely obsessed with this man. I wouldn’t miss a single thing he was on. Every week I’d keep my Monday and Friday nights open so I could watch him on TV. He was my role-model growing up. I dedicated a lot of my time tweeting him and watching him. I bought a pair of his wristbands and would wear them every single day. On October 19, 2010 my sister brought me to see him live in Calgary and I was shaking throughout the whole show. I spent lots of money on all the merchandise and pay-per-views he had.
But that’s not the point.
The point is that this man has made the hugest impact on my life. He was who I looked up to for a long time and he really taught me how to grow up. He was my inspiration. The motto’s of his that I lived by were “Never Give Up!”, “Hustle, Loyalty, & Respect.” and “Rise Above Hate.” He was seriously my entire world as a child. If he got ‘hurt’ wrestling or even lost a match, I would cry my eyes out. Of course I didn’t believe that wrestling was fake because it was my passion. I believed in this so much it was actually ridiculous.
Then, I started to grow up. Once I hit 8th grade I tore the posters I had down and started storing all my merchandise in drawers. I stopped wearing the wrist bands, and put them in the drawer too. I stopped keeping my Monday and Friday nights open to watch him. I began realizing that everything he did was acting and nothing more.
I lost a majority of my passion for wrestling and John Cena. I started having a raging social life that left no time open for any of this. I started becoming more girly, thinking that wrestling was more for boys and kids. I began to obsess over more “teenish” things like Justin Bieber and One Direction.
But one day at school, we were assigned to write about who our inspiration is.
I pondered for a little bit but I quickly started writing about 1D and handed the paper in after class.
I knew that I was wrong. I went home and opened up that drawer with all the merchandise. I hung up all my old posters. I put on my John Cena hat, shirt, and other gear and I sat and watched all his old speeches about his passion, wrestling. I began writing all about John Cena. This paper ended up being 4 double-sided pages long and since I already handed in the 1D paper, I decided that I would keep this one in the drawer with all his merchandise.
I stumbled upon the paper today and started crying while reading it.
I never realized until now how much this man has actually helped me. If it wasn’t for him, I don’t think I would’ve ever been so passionate about living my life. He taught me to never give up on my dreams and to respect everyone. He taught me to never judge others and to never let anyone judge you. He could make me happy by just smiling. He was like a father to me, although I’ve never met or spoken with him in my entire life. But by reading that letter today, I realized how grateful I am to have had him as a role-model. I still love this man with a burning passion. He will forever be someone who I can call my hero.
