We all have that one friend. The one we run to with a, "Can you help me with this?' or a, "Do you have a *insert obscure object here*?". I know, because I am that friend, guilty! While it sometimes can be frustrating, the pros definitely outweigh the cons.

1. You always have EVERYTHING in your bag

Chapstick, gum, lint roller, stain stick, you have it all.

2. You feel the need to be prepared for anything and everything

Which more often than not, turns into overpacking for every. single. trip.

3. Your whole hallway always comes knocking on your door, asking for random things

"Do you have a screwdriver?"

"Of course! who doesn't??"

*pulls out whole toolbox*

4. You have become a seamstress with all your friend's clothing you've fixed

Pants, check. Formal gowns, check. Beloved stuffed animals, check.

5. You always have mints or candy

*Discreetly passes them down the pew at church*

6. Your friends always come to you for advice

Even though you, yourself, have no idea what you're doing.

7. You're the one people come to for a hug and a shoulder to cry on

People say you just have a comforting personality.

8. You have a signature tea you make to cheer people up

It never fails, not sure why.

9. You are always the one that seems to organize plans

No plan = disaster.

10. You have mild OCD

A clean room is a happy room.

11. You always look after your friends' best interests

You feel bad if you let them do something they might regret.

12. You never fail to bring soup and movies when someone is sick

You've got it covered.

13. You're a master of dealing with injuries

Ice pack? Check.

14. "Can you put this in your purse?"

"What do I look like? Your mother?"

15. You have a coined, "mom name"

"Mama Becky" caught on real quick.

Being the "Mom friend" is something that will never change.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!
