15 Reasons Your Mom Is Always Incomparable

Mothers have an everlasting impact in our lives. And it goes beyond just keeping us in their womb for 9 months. You only start understanding how important the role they have played in your life is when they are not around. Understanding the relationship between a mother and a child can be pretty difficult as there are adorable and annoying times. Yet your mother is incomparable to any other being that will be in your life.

1. She made you learn from your mistakes

Those years when you were a toddler trying to walk, your mom was there to encourage to make progress. She taught you not to be afraid to fall down as she placed you on that new bike. It was all about learning and she offered you the best education possible.

2. She entered the rain with you

When the tides of life seemed overwhelming, your mom was willing to get wet with you. She wouldn’t let you go to school alone when you were sick. She was more afraid of the damages that could inflict you more than of those which might inflict herself.

3. She was patient with you

You made mistakes but your mother was the most patient and tolerant person in your life. She was patient with you and wouldn’t punish you for mistakes but offered you the opportunity to try to fix your wrongs.

4. She adjusted with your flaws

We all have flaws, but who knows and can adapt to them better than your mother? She was quick to identify your flaws and treat you with respect regardless of them.

5. She knew how to brighten you up

After a tough and horrible day your mother was the best person to talk to. She knew how to cheer you up and make you stay positive after an awful day.

6. She was blunt with you

Your mom would be the most honest person in your life. She was direct and told you the truth. If you were becoming an idiot, she was sure to let you know.

7. She provided the best solace for you

You felt most at home with your mom. You could tell her almost anything and were sure she would always look after your interest.

8. She knew how to laugh at your jokes

While others may never get the sense of what you were saying, your mom always understands your humor. She took it in and never considered your jokes stupid but brilliant.

9. She supported you during your trying times

Whenever you failed that test, were bullied or got ditched by that stupid lover and your ego was crushed, your mom was always there to stand by your side. She never deserted you to the harsh realities of life.

10. She pushed you to try new things

Telling your mom you wanted to become a guitarist didn’t count against you as your mom wanted you to always try new things and become a more skilled person. Most times she gave you the “you can do it” feeling.

11. She never forgot your birthdays

Your dad might forget your birthday, your brother and relatives might forget it, but never your mother.

12. She offered you advice

Whenever you needed to have her opinion on a subject, she was there to offer it. She would give you an honest advice whether you wanted to hear it or not.

13. She treated you like a special person

She offered you the best diet and got you the best clothes. She treated you more special than every other person in her world.

14. She never held a grudge

There were times when you had battles and argued over little things. All it took was an “I am sorry” and everything was gone. She never held a grudge.

15. She watched your favorite movies with you

Whether it was an exciting movie to her or not, or it made her want to fall asleep in the process, she was always happy to be at your side watching your favorite movies with you.

10 Proven Ways to Judge a Person’s Character

10 Proven Ways to Judge a Person’s Character

We all fall into the trap of judging a person’s character by their appearance. How wrong we are! All too often, the real character of the person only appears when some negative event hits them or you. Then you may see a toxic person emerging from the ruins and it is often a shock.

A truly frightening example is revealed in the book by O’Toole in Bowman called Dangerous Instincts: How Gut Instincts Betray Us. A perfectly respectable, charming, well dressed neighbor was found to have installed a torture chamber in his garage where he was systematically abusing kidnapped women. This is an extreme example, but it does show how we can be totally deceived by a person’s physical appearance, manners and behavior.

So, what can you do? You want to be able to assess personal qualities when you come into contact with colleagues, fresh acquaintances and new friends who might even become lifelong partners. You want to know if they are:

  • honest
  • reliable
  • competent
  • kind and compassionate
  • capable of taking the blame
  • able to persevere
  • modest and humble
  • pacific and can control anger.

The secret is to reserve judgment and take your time. Observe them in certain situations; look at how they react. Listen to them talking, joking, laughing, explaining, complaining, blaming, praising, ranting, and preaching. Only then will you be able to judge their character. This is not foolproof, but if you follow the 10 ways below, you have a pretty good chance of not ending up in an abusive relationship.

1. Is anger a frequent occurrence?

All too often, angry reactions which may seem to be excessive are a sign that there are underlying issues. Do not think that every person who just snaps and throws his/her weight around mentally and physically is just reacting normally. Everyone has an occasional angry outburst when driving or when things go pear-shaped.

But if this is almost a daily occurrence, then you need to discover why and maybe avoid that person. Too often, anger will escalate to violent and aggressive behavior. You do not want to be near someone who thinks violence can solve personal or global problems.

2. Can you witness acts of kindness?

How often do you see this person being kind and considerate? Do they give money to beggars, donate to charity, do voluntary work or in some simple way show that they are willing to share the planet with about 7 billion other people?

I was shocked when a guest of mine never showed any kindness to the weak and disadvantaged people in our town. She was ostensibly a religious person, but I began to doubt the sincerity of her beliefs.

“The best index to a person’s character is how he treats people who can’t do him any good, and how he treats people who can’t fight back.”

Abigail Van Buren

3. How does this person take the blame?

Maybe you know that s/he is responsible for a screw-up in the office or even in not turning up on time for a date. Look at their reaction. If they start blaming other colleagues or the traffic, well, this is an indication that they are not willing to take responsibility for their mistakes.

4. Don’t use Facebook as an indicator.

You will be relieved to know that graphology (the study of that forgotten skill of handwriting) is no longer considered a reliable test of a person’s character. Neither is Facebook stalking, fortunately. A study showed that Facebook use of foul language, sexual innuendo and gossip were not reliable indicators of a candidate’s character or future performance in the workplace.

5. Read their emails.

Now a much better idea is to read the person’s emails. Studies show that the use of the following can indicate certain personality traits:

  • Too many exclamation points may reveal a sunny disposition
  • Frequent errors may indicate apathy
  • Use of smileys is the only way a person can smile at you
  • Use of the third person may reveal a certain formality
  • Too many question marks can show anger
  • Overuse of capital letters is regarded as shouting. They are a definite no-no in netiquette, yet a surprising number of  people still use them.

6. Watch out for the show offs.

Listen to people as they talk. How often do they mention their achievements, promotions, awards and successes? If this happens a lot, it is a sure indication that this person has an over-inflated view of his/her achievements. They are unlikely to be modest or show humility. What a pity!  Another person to avoid.

7. Look for evidence of perseverance.

A powerful indicator of grit and tenacity is when a person persists and never gives up when they really want to achieve a life goal. Look for evidence of them keeping going in spite of enormous difficulties.

Great achievements by scientists and inventors all bear the hallmark of perseverance. We only have to think of Einstein, Edison (who failed thousands of times) and Nelson Mandela to get inspiration. The US Department of Education is in no doubt about how grit, tenacity and perseverance will be key success factors for youth in the 21st century.

8. Their empathy score is high.

Listen to how they talk about the less fortunate members of our society such as the poor, immigrants and the disabled. Do you notice that they talk in a compassionate way about these people? The fact that they even mention them is a strong indicator of empathy.

People with zero empathy will never talk about the disadvantaged. They will rarely ask you a question about a difficult time or relationship. They will usually steer the conversation back to themselves. These people have zero empathy and in extreme cases, they are psychopaths who never show any feelings towards their victims.

9. Learn how to be socially interactive.

We are social animals and this is what makes us so uniquely human. If a person is isolated or a loner, this may be a negative indicator of their character. You want to meet a person who knows about trust, honesty and loyalty. The only way to practice these great qualities is to actually interact socially. The great advantage is that you can share problems and celebrate success and joy together.

“One can acquire everything in solitude, except character.”

Stendhal

 10. Avoid toxic people.

These people are trying to control others and often are failing to come to terms with their own failures. Typical behavior and conversations may concern:

  • Envy or jealousy
  • Criticism of partners, colleagues and friends
  • Complaining about their own lack of success
  • Blaming others for their own bad luck or failure
  • Obsession with themselves and their problems

Listen to these people talk and you will quickly discover that you need to avoid them at all costs because their negativity will drag you down. In addition, as much as you would like to help them, you are not qualified to do so.

Now, having looked at some of the best ways to judge a person, what about yourself? How do others see you? Why not take Dr. Phil’s quiz and find out. Can you bear it?
