13 Signs You Are The Mom Of Your Friend Group

13 Signs You Are The Mom Of Your Friend Group

"Metaphorically a mother to many, physically a mother to none."

1. You normally drive your friends around.

You are the chauffeur of your friend group because you are the only one who has any sense of direction.

2. You remind everyone what events are coming up.

Your calendar is detailed with not only your schedule, but the important events on your friends' schedules as well.

3. You make your friends to follow the rules.

The rules were placed there for a reason and you like to follow them. You get really uncomfortable when your friends want to test the limits of legality. When you do break the rules, your friends wonder if you were replaced by your evil twin.

4. You normally clean up after your friends.

Whether it is your dorm room, your house, their dorm room or their house, you clean up after everyone. It's not something you are asked to do, you just naturally do it. Sometimes you even enjoy cleaning up.

5. You give your friends lots of advice.

Your friends come to you will all their problems. You are definitely not wiser than them, but they think you have all the answers. They may not take your advice, but hey they came to you before they made a decision.

6. You believe in your friends.

Whether it is an econ test, a late night of work ahead or a tough conversation, you give your friends an extra boost of encouragement because you believe in them. To you, they are capable of anything they put their minds to.

7. You are prepared for anything.

Someone has a runny nose. You have tissues. Someone spilled on their shirt. You have a stain remover pen. Someone rips a hole in their clothes. You have a sewing kit. Someone has a headache. You have Advil and a water bottle. Someone needs hand sanitizer. You have the good smelling kind, lotion to keep hands from drying out, and Chapstick because they usually ask for that next. You are like a boy scout and always come prepared.

8. You have to be right. All the time.

Remember when your mom would say "Because I said so" well now you know why. It was because she was right or thought she was right and had to be right.

9. You end up deciding the plans for the evening.

Because most planning goes like this "I don't know, what do you want to do?" "I don't care, you can pick." "Let's just do something fun." You end up just making a decision and everyone has to go with it whether they like it or not.

10. You embarrass your friends.

Whether is it your dance moves, mom jokes or just being your awkward self, you embarrass your friends unintentionally. It is just part of being a mom.

You say stuff like this...

And your friends respond like this...

Or this...

11. You are protective of your friends.

If someone decides they want to pick on your friends or break their hearts, you turn into mama bear. Nobody is going to survive the wrath of your protection.

12. You take action when something happens to one of your friends.

If one of your friends gets sick, gets hurt or just has a bad day, you jump into mom mode. You do anything and everything to make sure they are O.K. You will put your needs aside to be there for your friends.

13. You care a lot about your friends.

Your heart is filled with so much love for your friends. You cannot imagine a life without them. Their friendship is one of the things you cherish most in life and without them you don't know who you would boss around.

To The Parent Who Chose Addiction

Thank you for giving me a stronger bond with our family.


When I was younger I resented you, I hated every ounce of you, and I used to question why God would give me a parent like you. Not now. Now I see the beauty and the blessings behind having an addict for a parent. If you're reading this, it isn't meant to hurt you, but rather to thank you.

Thank you for choosing your addiction over me.

Throughout my life, you have always chosen the addiction over my programs, my swim meets or even a simple movie night. You joke about it now or act as if I never questioned if you would wake up the next morning from your pill and alcohol-induced sleep, but I thank you for this. I thank you because I gained a relationship with God. The amount of time I spent praying for you strengthened our relationship in ways I could never explain.

SEE ALSO: They're Not Junkies, You're Just Uneducated

Thank you for giving me a stronger bond with our family.

The amount of hurt and disappointment our family has gone through has brought us closer together. I have a relationship with Nanny and Pop that would never be as strong as it is today if you had been in the picture from day one. That in itself is a blessing.

Thank you for showing me how to love.

From your absence, I have learned how to love unconditionally. I want you to know that even though you weren't here, I love you most of all. No matter the amount of heartbreak, tears, and pain I've felt, you will always be my greatest love.

Thank you for making me strong.

Thank you for leaving and for showing me how to be independent. From you, I have learned that I do not need anyone else to prove to me that I am worthy of being loved. From you, I have learned that life is always hard, but you shouldn't give into the things that make you feel good for a short while, but should search for the real happiness in life.

Most of all, thank you for showing me how to turn my hurt into motivation.

I have learned that the cycle of addiction is not something that will continue into my life. You have hurt me more than anyone, but through that hurt, I have pushed myself to become the best version of myself.

Thank you for choosing the addiction over me because you've made me stronger, wiser, and loving than I ever could've been before.

Should Women Of All Ages REALLY Be Legally Allowed Have Abortions?

Seriously this is a major problem.


Yes, they should.

Her Body. Her Choice.

No matter the age.

High school student. College student. Young adult. Middle age.

Even late term if the mother is in medical danger (aka that means death, and majority of the time the baby has already passed and is what is causing the medical problem).

Stop trying to control women's rights to choose what they do with THEIR bodies.
