It's Okay, Just Call Mom

During times when you get bogged down with life and are feeling completely overwhelmed, it always does the soul good to call Mom.

I repeat:

Just keep calm and call your mom.

In fact, this is something I find myself saying on a regular basis. "Just call Mom. It's fine. Mom will make it not so bad." Why is it that in our times of distress, we instinctively feel the need to hear our mom's voice? Somehow, she always knows just what to say, even if it isn't necessarily in the content of her words. Often times, just the sound of her voice is comforting.

Mom is the one who has always been there. Who kissed the boo boo's and combed your hair. It's okay to need Mom, and I think that is something that you don't get told enough the older you become. One week in to my first week of college, I was already calling my mom crying like a baby. I had just moved away from home, I was sick, and I hardly knew anybody, and, like always, a call to my dear 'ole mother did the trick. By no means was that the last tear filled phone call that I've made since the beginning of my college life, and I know, without a doubt, there will be more in the future.

That's just how it is, and that's okay.

I am not saying that you should depend on your mom for everything. We all reach the age when you have to make your own decisions and live your own life. What I am saying is, you don't have to go through it alone.

Life is tough, and sometimes you need somebody like Mom to come in and remind you that it's not the end of the world. It'll be okay.

We all have someone that we turn to in our times of need, even if, for you, that person isn't your mom. Someone that you aren't afraid to turn to when you need advice or comforting. You don't have to do it all on your own.

Sometimes it's okay to just call Mom.
