Mamas Are A Girl's Best Friend, And Here Are 3 Reasons Why

My best friend is 25 years older than me, and no, that's not weird.

No, it isn't Mother's Day or anything like that. Don't panic. You didn't forget it or miss it. The great thing is, it doesn't have to be Mother's Day for you to send some love your mama's way. You should remind her that you love her whenever you can. Not only did she birth you, but she's the best friend a girl can ask for –– for a variety of reasons.

1. She was there for all of the ups and downs.

Your mom was there for every good and bad you've experienced almost your entire life. From scraping your knee on the playground to your first break-up, from potty training to graduation. She has shared all of the tears and all of the laughter. She knows the names of every crush you've ever had, all of your best friends, and all of your worst enemies. She's seen you do embarrassing things, and let's be honest, she's probably seen you behave like a big jerk. But, no matter you've done or said in a misplaced fit of frustration she has never judged you, and she always still loves you after the fact.

2. She knows you better than you know yourself.

Because your mom has been there for both the highlight reel and bloopers of your existence, she probably knows more about you than anyone else. She knows your pet peeves, your bad habits, your darkest secrets. She never forgets your birthday and always knows what the best gift would be for you. She has your favorite colors, meals, movies, and books memorized. When you're not feeling well or you're sad, she almost always knows what the problem is or how to help. She also always knows what to say when you need advice.

3. She is always the person you call.

Speaking of needing advice, your mother is always the first person you call when you do. Even after you move out and go off to do you- whether it be for college or something else. Why? Well, as was stated earlier, she always knows what to say.

She knows you. She loves you. She's seen you through it all. She's also lived a lot of life for herself. She's a grown woman who has experienced a lot, and she usually knows a thing or two about the way the world works.

If you want to know what medicine to get for your cold, if you are concerned about a weird rash, if you have a question about your taxes, or if your car is making a funny noise, your mom is almost always the person you pick up the phone to call. She always picks up, and she always has the answer.

We should all be grateful for mothers. My mom is my best friend. Moms are important and necessary, throughout your whole childhood and adolescence, and even after you are an adult out on your own. She will always be there for you, and she'll always love you. She has the best answers to your dilemmas, and she always cares.

She knows you, and she cares about you, more than any other friend you have probably ever would or could. So, thank your mother today for being the best friend a daughter could ask for. It doesn't take much, even just a small text to let her know you're thinking of her. Let her know you appreciate her.

Thank her for being there for you.

Everyone's been here. And, truthfully, it sucks. But in order to move on and get past something you need to allow yourself to feel it for what it is--all of the heartbreak and pain--and then you can start to take steps move on.

The Christmas season is coming to an end, but it's not too late to get some last-minute movies in! Unfortunately, this year didn't look like a typical Christmas. While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home! Christmas is the best time for nostalgia, and we could all use some warm and fuzzy feelings as we wrap up a tough year and enter a new one that hasn't been proven any calmer, either.

As a kid who grew up in the 2000s, I can think of some of my favorite staple Christmas movies. If you're looking for recommendations or just a walk down memory lane, check out the list below.

As we enter the new year, you might be looking for a great show to kick-off 2021. Look no further, I have the perfect recommendation. "The Wilds" was released on Amazon Prime last month and has been gaining traction steadily since then. This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.

If you aren't convinced yet, allow me to provide you with a list of further persuasion.

Online classes and virtual reality in general have been the staple of 2020. One day in March, everything shut down and we all had to learn how to work, teach, study, do therapy, and take classes remotely without much preparation. So, it's been a roller-coaster experience, and definitely not what we expected.

11 TV Characters Who Are Irritating BEYOND Belief

Maybe they never really did anything seriously wrong, but oh my god they are annoying af.

20131

Have you ever been watching your favorite show, all comfortable and relaxed, and then that one character that you just can't stand pops up on the screen and ruins your mood? I know I certainly have. These characters aren't necessarily evil or horrible people, but they do have personalities that make them incredibly irritating. They're the kind of characters that make you want to yell at the writer, "what the hell were you thinking with this one?" Perhaps they have never hurt a fly, but it doesn't matter since their character just straight-up sucks.

By the way, some of my arguments contain spoilers, so fair warning.
