As I have matured into my adult years, I have learned many things thus far. I have learned the valuable importance of friendships, but more importantly, I have discovered the close bond that I have with my mom.
As we mature, we as women come to realize the necessity there is for a mother and a best friend.
Here are six reasons why you just might have lucked out when it comes to moms.
1. You quote movies together.Giphy
It's fun to be able to quote movies, but it's even more fun when you have someone to quote them with. One of my moms and I favorite movies to quote is "Freaky Friday." We can just about quote the entire movie!
2. You can confide in her without judgment.
It is nice to have someone that won't judge your actions or your feelings, no matter how ridiculous. I am lucky to have a few people like this in my life, one of them being my mom. It is important for a woman to be able to open up to her mother about things in her life no matter how trivial.
3. She makes you feel special when no one else can.
Ever need an encouraging pep talk? I know I do more often than not, and I can always count on my mom to make me feel better. Whenever I am feeling down or don't feel good about myself, my mom knows just the right things to say to lift me right back up.
4. She is your wine drinking buddy.Giphy
It is great to be able to open up to your mom, but it is even better when it is over a bottle a wine. Whether you are going through a breakup, have a had a rough day, or just want to talk, it is always better with a glass of wine and your mom.
5. Her opinion means everything to yo
I have always trusted my mother's judgment regarding decisions I make and the people I choose to let into my life. When it comes to friends, boyfriends, etc., my mom has never been wrong. She knows the ones to keep around and the ones that won't make the cut.
6. She is there for you through the highest highs and the lowest lows.
It is safe to say there are many life events that you will stumble upon as you become an adult, and sometimes what you really need is your mom for the really good times and for the very bad times. The bad times, however, are the most important because anyone can be there for you to recognize your accomplishments, but not many will be there to pick you up when you fall. I have been through a lot from my teenage years to now. From mental illnesses and major life decisions to breakups, my mother is the only person that truly knows my heart and what is best for me, and that is something that I am very lucky to have.
