Things You Forgot To Thank Your Mother For
With Mother’s Day around the corner, it’s the ideal time to sit down and think about all of the things your mother has done for you. Maybe you two don’t always get along. Maybe you even argue, quite a bit—hey, the mother/daughter relationship is a complicated one—but you can’t say your mother doesn’t care about you deeply. In fact, her intense love for you is the very reason you fight. You know that the real opposite of love is indifference. Fighting a lot just means you are able to trigger extreme anger in each other because you love each other so much. Maybe if you are yourself now a mother, you have come to learn all of the things your mom did for you—the things that you neglected to thank her for. And even if you aren’t a mother, you probably have moments of clarity when you realize that your mom is allowed to nitpick at you because she, you know, made you. For Mother’s Day, here are 15 things to thank your mom for—even if you don’t always get along.
For giving you life
If you don’t know yet what an absolute horror pregnancy can be—and that’s not even touching on childbirth yet—then give yourself an old fashioned health class refresher and watch a video. Your mom did that so that you can live, breathe, walk, love, dance, learn, make friends, and do all the things you get to do in this life.
