To My Boyfriend's Mom

To My Boyfriend's Mom

Because you loved him first, he loves me.

To My Boyfriend's Mom
Marysa Wigley

Without you, there is no him; so for that, thank you.

1. Thank you for giving me a chance and learning to love me just as your son is doing: I'm sure you didn't know what to expect of me, as I didn't with you, but we've grown on each other and you've made me like your own. There are no words to put how thankful I am for that.

2. Thank you for showing him the kind of love he should give: He loves you, looks up to you, and he is a definite momma's boy all the time. Because of that same love, he has loved me with the same respect.

3. Thank you for your advice and suggestions: No matter if it's for something like my hair, something he might like, or just telling me to keep him in line - you always have an idea to throw at me and I know you'll always be there if I just ask.

4. Thank you for including me: You always leave an open spot for me no matter the occasion. I love family dinners/outings with you guys!

5. Thank you for accepting me: You have never wished that I were another girl or that I was anyone else but me. You have loved and cared for me all the same since we met and have accepted everything about me.

6. Thank you for letting him be part of my family, too: He is so precious and loyal to my family and I have never wondered why because I have seen him with you and yours. We never fail to have the best time.

7. Thank you for teaching him how to treat a woman: He has never disrespected me, he is a good listener, forgiving, and patient. I know he gets all those traits from you raising him prior to our relationship. It has certainly paid off.

8. Thank you for teaching him to clean up after himself: It might even take a couple of days, but he always remembers how mom said to do it.

9. Thank you for trusting me with him: He's a momma's boy and I know he's so valuable to you. I try always to show you (and him) that I will do anything to make him happy and guard his heart.

10. Thank you for letting him love me and teaching him how to love at all: I have never felt so loved by anyone else in my entire life. Thank you for showing him love with your entire heart, so that he can love me with his.

You and I both know that we will probably always have to feed him, clean up the laundry, and remind of him of plans we made the day before, but all together we share a love for such an amazing man. I could never put into words how thankful I am that you brought such a handsome, supportive, precious, comforting, driven person into the world. Thank you for everything you do for him and for us!

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

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

We have all been there. Mindlessly scrolling through social media and then we see that post. We see someone we once saw a future with creating it with someone else. However this time it was really different. A lot of times when we say we are happy for someone we don't really mean it.

Affirmations affirm beliefs that we are in need of strengthening. They help up to focus on goals that we are striving for or on a powerful part of ourselves that we need a little reminder is within us.

They specifically focus on positive outcomes or belief systems that we're working to solidify, rather than solely focusing action on eradicating something "bad" or "wrong" from your life.

About a year ago, I began my own fitness journey. Growing up, I had played soccer and kept busy, but after an injury cut my soccer career short I suddenly became very inactive.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Some people are so good at downplaying their sadness that even they don't realize how much they do it. When you ask them how they are they will always say that they are good, even when they aren't. They exhaust themselves by plastering an energetic and carefree persona in the spaces that you watch them in because at least to you they can control how they appear. They can pretend to be the happy person they want to be when everyone is telling them how funny and bubbly they are all the time.

Mental health is not an easy endeavor. It's not a fad. It's not a bandwagon that you can hop on and off of whenever you want to. Your yearly dose of sadness is not depression. I'm not here to define what depression — or anxiety, or any other type of mental health issue looks like — but I will tell you what it's not.

The beaches are starting to open up. At least in Cape Cod, where my family and I were able to vacation this week. Near our house, we have a bit of a private beach, which is great.

I sometimes look back at the days when I had anorexia and think to myself what would have happened if I had taken another bite? Nowadays, I spend days dreading over my figure and wondering if the old sundresses and outfits even fit. I tell myself that they do, but I feel like reality holds a different truth.
