Why Your Mother Is Always Right

No matter what decision you are making, be aware that your mom has already made it and reaped the consequences.

Parenthood is the toughest job on this planet. It requires the least amount of experience and still manages to be the most thought provoking and difficult career path one can take a stroll down. That being said, just because you mothered a child, does not qualify you as a mother. Being a mother is making the decision to keep a child and even on their worst day, never give them back, even if they color with crayons all over your walls or cut your brand new comforter with a pair of scissors while wrapping Christmas presents (SORRY MOM). Being a mom is a choice to love a child and care for them until you physically can't anymore. As hard as it is to take in discipline as the wrongdoer, it is even harder to dish it out. As much as it feels like she is in the moment, moms don't make their decisions to ruin your life, they choose to not allow you to be a menace to society. As much as we don't like to believe it, mothers are ALWAYS right.

Your mother is always right because she has been in your shoes. No matter what decision you are making, be aware that your mom has already made it and reaped the consequences. When your mom tries to ban you from hanging out with that friend or tells you to stop talking to that boy it is because she has been there and she knows how this ends. The girl stabs you in the back and the boy stabs you in the heart (metaphorically, of course), there is nothing more your mother wants than to avoid any hurt that could possibly hit their children. So when you think your mom can't relate and that she just doesn't understand take a step back and realize that she might be the best source of advice even if you don't want to confide in her, you should at least take a chance. As you grow up you will slowly start to understand, your mom is always on your side, she is actually your biggest fan. When the going gets tough the tough run to mom, at least I do.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.


September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present.
