When I first left for college, I thought it would be the best four years of my life. I am currently a sophomore soon to be junior. It has been difficult for me to hold friends close to me without pushing them away due to my have trust issues. Although, I still have a few good friends here at college that I hangout with on occasion, I do not have one person that I do everything with. I do have close friends but they all go to different colleges so unfortunate we can only hangout when I am home. So my mom became my best friend.
I think everyone thinks their parents are a pain and get annoyed when their parents constantly want to talk to them and have them a question and worry about you. Although sometimes, my mother gets on my nerves, especially when it comes to being an adult, I tell my mom everything.
She is someone that I can talk to about anything whether it be about what I am eating, the new celebrity couples, or even how horrible my day went. She is the person I go to when I have questions on whether I can put my sweater in the dryer or when I need advice on a makeup look that I want to try. I am always sending her videos, TikToks and memes of animals, makeup or things that we would consider an inside joke.
Someone may think it is weird how close my mom and I are but I wouldn't want it anyway. If I am not by her side, it is probably because I am with my dogs, at school or I am at work.
She has become my best friend and I trust my mom with my entire heart and as I get older, the harder and harder I find it to leave my home to go on trips or school. Whenever I do not get a good morning/ good night text from my mom, I find myself texting or calling her just to make sure she is okay.
My mom is my number one supporter who has been there for me through everything. She was there for me as I got ready for my first date, my first prom, graduations and some of the most traumatic times of my life. She has seen me at my lowest, my highest and during the times that she probably questioned me. My love and appreciation for my mom are endless and I am grateful for her.
If you are reading this mom, know that I love you so much and I am proud to have you as my mother.
