Mothers know the ways of the world. They are strong and independent people, who don’t let anyone or anything dull their aura. They are your first best friends as you enter the world and throughout their life’s journey, they stick by you, come hell or high water.
If you have been raised by a mother who is strong, you will relate to these 10 things.
1. You understand the meaning of unconditional love
Your mother has taught you everything about making sacrifices and at the same time, valuing unconditional love. Once you learn about giving without complaining, you can breeze through life’s tribulations knowing that you are happy and content from within.
2. You value independence
You don’t need a partner’s shoulder to put your weight on. You learn to be self-sufficient, both emotionally and physically. You learn how to be a superhero who can basically juggle a successful career with a thriving family life.
3. You learn to love yourself
When you love yourself, you find inner strength to deal with every setback in life – whether it’s a failure or a heartbreak. Even when the world turns its back on you, you know you will sail through because you are your own person.
4. You learn to be sensitive and tough
Whenever life was difficult, you had your mom by your side. Moms can blend into situations and deal with them both sensitively and head-on, given the demands at the time; which helps you to learn the balancing act of these two extremes.
5. You learn not to look back
You let go of the past as you don’t feel tied down by it. All the “what ifs” and “I wish” don’t bother you as you live in the present, dealing with its beauties and challenges. You learn that everything you did got you to where you are today and you won’t have it any other way.
