Mom is always right, so take her advice to heart. (Steel Magnolias/TriStar)
Have you ever been annoyed with the advice your mom gives you? But, now that you’re older, you’re beginning to regret not listening to her in the first place?
Check out the top five things your mom was totally right about:
5) You are thanking her now that you’re older.
Ever sit through a conversation with you mom and you’re just thinking, “blah blah blah, you don’t get it!” But now that you’re older you think, “Holy crap, my mom was right?” Yup, it has happened to me, too. As you get older, you will start to realize that you are giving your mom more credit than ever.
4) She does make the best food.
Have you ever gone to gone to a friend’s house and his/her mom’s food doesn’t taste the same? A mother’s meal can never be replaced. I remember when I used to live in the dorms when I was in college, and I would crave my mom’s food so much. I didn’t realize it until I was older and far away from her that her food really is the best in the world.
3) She always told you to watch how you spend your money.
It wasn’t until now that I realized all the money I’ve spent on things that I wanted was useless. Since I was little I have always been into sneakers, but as I got older I realized that I was spending my money unwisely. When I look back at all the sneakers I’ve bought, I summed up an estimate of how much money I spent on them, and the price is outrageous! Let’s just say, it’s over three grand. Yup! I’m not kidding. My mom would always tell me that I’m just wasting my money on shoes, and looking back, she was right. You know what I could have done with three grand? Man, I could have put a down payment on a car. We live, and we learn.
2) Date when you’re older.
Well, isn’t that the truth. We all have our relationship experiences, but when we are young that’s when we tend to make the most mistakes when dating. It’s always important to invest time in yourself and be happy with who you are before you can make someone else your priority. “Enjoy your youth” is what my mom always says.
1) Judgement Free.
No matter what you have done in your life, the accomplishments, the mistakes or the choices you have made, your mother will never judge you. Yes, it’s always good to have a friend that you can count on, but sometimes you might feel a little embarrassed about some of the things you do. Well, as you get older you begin to notice that your mother will likely be the only person to take your crap and still love you without judging you. Instead of making you feel worse about the situation she will tell you your wrongs but she will also tell you how to make it right.
