I'm Well Loved, Not Spoiled Rotten

I'm Well Loved, Not Spoiled Rotten

I have never had a silver spoon in my mouth, I've had the opposite.

Recently, I've been called spoiled rotten for recent gifts I've gotten.

Number one, I am NOT spoiled rotten. Numer two, who are you to judge me for what I get? I am very grateful for the gifts I receive and even deny most things cause I feel awful about taking them. Most of the things I receive are gifts because I've worked for it, or it's my birthday or Christmas.

I am a very grateful person and want everyone to know it. I hate that there is a label put on me just because I get things. No, I didn't get handed things as a child and now, I was taught to work for what I want and taught to be responsible. I am well loved by most of my family and I can't stop them from doing so, I apologize for that. I have never had a silver spoon in my mouth, I've had the opposite.

I want people to understand that my mother does her best to provide for me. She has had to take on the role of a father and a mother the last few months and she's done a fantastic job of raising me to have a work ethic and to be responsible.

When I wanted a dog? My parents made sure they told me how hard it would be, even though my dog ended up loving my mom and dad more.

New Phone? I had to show responsibility for taking care of a phone and have good grades.

I have never gotten the easy way out.

I am an only child so being spoiled is typically a frowned upon stereotype of only children. My parents never once tried to buy my love or make up for times they weren't there. My parents were busy people, working and trying to raise a little girl. They showed me how to be an adult and work for things at a very young age and I am grateful for that.

I apologize to everyone who thinks I'm spoiled rotten. I am spoiled, but not because my parents loved me "too much" or because I was raised with a silver spoon. I am well loved and cared for by an amazing woman who wants me to have nice things. I thank her for that every day. So please, stop referring to me as a "spoiled brat' or as "spoiled rotten"

To The Grandmothers Who Made Us The Women We Are Today

Sincerely, the loving granddaughters.

The relationship between a grandmother and her granddaughter is something so uniquely special and something to be treasured forever.

Your grandma loves you like you are her own daughter and adores you no matter what. She is the first person you run to when you have a problem with your parents and she never fails to grace you with the most comforting advice.

She may be guilty of spoiling you rotten but still makes sure to stress the importance of being thankful and kind.

Your grandma has most likely lived through every obstacle that you are experiencing now as a young adult and always knows just exactly what to say.

She grew up in another generation where things were probably much harder for young women than they are today.

She is a walking example of perseverance, strength, and grace who you aim to be like someday.

Your grandma teaches you the lessons she had to learn the hard way because she does not want you to make the same mistakes she did when she was growing up.

Her hugs never fail to warm your heart, her smile never fails to make you smile, and her laugh never fails to brighten your day.

She inspires you to be the best version of yourself that you can be.

You only hope that one day you can be the mother and grandmother she was to you.

A piece of girl’s heart will forever belong to her grandma that no one could ever replace.

She is the matriarch of your family and is the glue that holds you all together.

Grandmothers play such an important role in helping their granddaughters to grow into strong, intelligent, kind women.

She teaches you how to love and how to forgive.

Without the unconditional love of your grandma, you would not be the woman you are today.

To all of the grandmothers out there, thank you for being you.

To The Ones Who Are Always There, Thank You And I Love You

Sure, we may not always get along or see eye-to-eye, but at the end of the day, I know they only want whats best for me.


In your life, you go through the phases of friend groups, best friends, and boyfriends — yet we feel lonely at times too. But there are two people who have been there for us since day one and I know always will be, our parents.

Sure we may not always get along or see eye-to-eye but at the end of the day, I know they only want what's best for me. My parents are some of the strongest and most independent people I know, they have taught me things separately and together. And without them, I wouldn't be the strong independent person I am today.

My mom has always been my best friend, someone I can turn to in times of happiness and sorrow. And she always has some of the best advice. She's taught me patience and to treat everyone with kindness.

A mom can be your best friend and your enemy, but they always want what's best. Even if they don't always see your side of the story, sometimes they are the unbiased opinion you need.

A mom can be there when your crying at 2 a.m. over a boy, but also be the one to sit you down and tell you that you are the dummy for getting back together with him. They are the person who will hype you up with the girl in your fifth period does nothing but tear you down. She's there with the best advice in the worst times.

My dad has always been my motivation, the one who knows my full potential even when I don't. He pushes me to be the best me I can be. Even when I think I'm already there, he pushes me harder and shows me everything I am capable of.

A dad can be your coach, your leader, and your teammate.

They can push you past your limits sometimes, but they always just want you to do everything you are capable of. A dad can be someone who has the most wisdom even when you think you are the smartest person in the room. They can grind your gears with the sarcastic comments and the way they always prove you wrong. But no matter what, they teach us life lessons on a daily basis.

There are the small things, and big things, that our parents do that make us who we are today, so go to your parents and give them the biggest hug you can. Tell them thank you and I love you.

Because they are the ones who are always there.
