15 Reasons Your Mom Is Always Incomparable

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.

7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

Some people will have a rain cloud hanging over them, no matter what the weather is outside. Their negative attitude is toxic to your own moods, and you probably feel like there is little you can do about it.

But that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

If you want to effectively deal with negative people and be a champion of positivity, then your best route is to take definite action through some of the steps below.

1. Limit the time you spend with them.

First, let’s get this out of the way. You can be more positive than a cartoon sponge, but even your enthusiasm has a chance of being afflicted by the constant negativity of a friend.

In fact, negativity has been proven to damage your health physically, making you vulnerable to high levels of stress and even cardiac disease. There’s no reason to get hurt because of someone else’s bad mood.

Though this may be a little tricky depending on your situation, working to spend slightly less time around negative people will keep your own spirits from slipping as well.

2. Speak up for yourself.

Don’t just absorb the comments that you are being bombarded with, especially if they are about you. It’s wise to be quick to listen and slow to speak, but being too quiet can give the person the impression that you are accepting what’s being said.

3. Don’t pretend that their behavior is “OK.”

This is an easy trap to fall into. Point out to the person that their constant negativity isn’t a good thing. We don’t want to do this because it’s far easier to let someone sit in their woes, and we’d rather just stay out of it.

But if you want the best for this person, avoid giving the false impression that their negativity is normal.

4. Don’t make their problems your problems.

Though I consider empathy a gift, it can be a dangerous thing. When we hear the complaints of a friend or family member, we typically start to take on their burdens with them.

This is a bad habit to get into, especially if this is a person who is almost exclusively negative. These types of people are prone to embellishing and altering a story in order to gain sympathy.

Why else would they be sharing this with you?

5. Change the subject.

When you suspect that a conversation is starting to take a turn for the negative, be a champion of positivity by changing the subject. Of course, you have to do this without ignoring what the other person said.

Acknowledge their comment, but move the conversation forward before the euphoric pleasure gained from complaining takes hold of either of you.

6. Talk about solutions, not problems.

Sometimes, changing the subject isn’t an option if you want to deal with negative people, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still be positive.

I know that when someone begins dumping complaints on me, I have a hard time knowing exactly what to say. The key is to measure your responses as solution-based.

You can do this by asking questions like, “Well, how could this be resolved?” or, “How do you think they feel about it?”

Use discernment to find an appropriate response that will help your friend manage their perspectives.

7. Leave them behind.

Sadly, there are times when we have to move on without these friends, especially if you have exhausted your best efforts toward building a positive relationship.

If this person is a family member, you can still have a functioning relationship with them, of course, but you may still have to limit the influence they have over your wellbeing.

That being said, what are some steps you’ve taken to deal with negative people? Let us know in the comments.
