20 Reasons Your Mom Will Always Have A Special Place In Your Heart

20 Reasons Your Mom Will Always Have A Special Place In Your Heart

When it comes to our moms, the relationship we have can be complicated by a mix of unconditional love and moments of contempt. Whatever your relationship was, she will always hold a place in your heart. She is irreplaceable in our hearts for good reasons and although you never knew what she was thinking on the inside, she always had your best interest at heart.

1. She gave you life

Your mom decided to give birth to you and with that took on the responsibility to love and support you.

2. She would hold you any time of day or night when you needed her

When you are afraid and vulnerable, your mother’s caress will make you feel safe.

3. When you were vunerable as a baby, she was your protector

Your mom spent all of your baby years keeping you safe so you were free to grow through experiences.

4. She offers you as much security as possible

Your mom’s sole job in the first years and maybe even still is to ensure you’re taken care of and safe.

5. She is selfless: if you need something your mom will go without to give it to you

Your mom puts you before herself with everything and is dedicated to you.

6. She loves you even when you don’t love yourself in the adolescent years

There are some tough years where we don’t even know who we are anymore but our moms stabilized that feeling with her love for us.

7. She listens to you when you need someone to talk to

To have an ear and a shoulder to cry on makes us feel better and moms are great at that.

8. Her tough love is only to make you better

Anytime you felt like your mom was hard on you, you will look back and see that it was to your benefit.

9. She passed her life wisdom on to you

Your mom teaches you valuable lessons in life that you wouldn’t have learned from anyone else.

10. She nags you for all the right reasons like taking an umbrella or wearing a warm jacket

Although you may find her nagging a bit frustrating, it is always for your greater good.

11. She will always have your back even when you’re wrong

You make mistakes but your mom always takes your side.

12. She supports all of your ideas and endeavors

Your mom is happy when you have passion for something and she does everything in her power to help you reach your goals.

13. She lifts you up when you’ve been defeated and takes the time to build you back up

When life gets you down, your mom will be there to pick you up.

14. She has loved you even through the hardest times

Life can bring on some harsh experiences that leave you feeling left in the dust and this is when your mom gives you the loving kindness you deeply need in these moments.

15. She made it possible for you to experience many things in your life even if that meant her taking on an extra job

The sacrifices your mom makes often include financial backing so even if it means getting a second job, she makes sure you can achieve your dreams.

16. She watched you in competition and cheered you on even if it meant waking up at the crack of dawn or standing on the sidelines in the rain

Your mom supports you in your activities and  always thinks you’re the greatest player out there (even if you aren’t),

Your mom believes in you and that belief makes you a better person in many ways.

The place in your heart for your mom will always be there whether you live next door to each other or are far apart.

13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do

13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do

Mentally strong people have healthy habits. They manage their emotions, thoughts, and behaviors in ways that set them up for success in life.

Take a look at these 13 things that mentally strong people don’t do so that you too can become mentally stronger.

1. They Don’t Waste Time Feeling Sorry for Themselves

Mentally strong people don’t sit around feeling sorry about their circumstances or how others have treated them. Instead, they take responsibility for their role in life and understand that life isn’t always easy or fair.

2. They Don’t Give Away Their Power

They don’t allow others to control them, and they don’t give someone else power over them. They don’t say things like, “My boss makes me feel bad,” because they understand that they are in control over their own emotions and they have a choice in how they respond.

3. They Don’t Shy Away from Change

Mentally strong people don’t try to avoid change. Instead, they welcome positive change and are willing to be flexible. They understand that change is inevitable and believe in their abilities to adapt.

4. They Don’t Waste Energy on Things They Can’t Control

You won’t hear a mentally strong person complaining over lost luggage or traffic jams. Instead, they focus on what they can control in their lives. They recognize that sometimes, the only thing they can control is their attitude.

5. They Don’t Worry About Pleasing Everyone

Mentally strong people recognize that they don’t need to please everyone all the time. They’re not afraid to say no or speak up when necessary. They strive to be kind and fair, but can handle other people being upset if they didn’t make them happy.

6. They Don’t Fear Taking Calculated Risks

They don’t take reckless or foolish risks, but don’t mind taking calculated risks. Mentally strong people spend time weighing the risks and benefits before making a big decision, and they’re fully informed of the potential downsides before they take action.

7. They Don’t Dwell on the Past

Mentally strong people don’t waste time dwelling on the past and wishing things could be different. They acknowledge their past and can say what they’ve learned from it.

However, they don’t constantly relive bad experiences or fantasize about the glory days. Instead, they live for the present and plan for the future.

8. They Don’t Make the Same Mistakes Over and Over

Mentally strong people accept responsibility for their behavior and learn from their past mistakes. As a result, they don’t keep repeating those mistakes over and over. Instead, they move on and make better decisions in the future.

9. They Don’t Resent Other People’s Success

Mentally strong people can appreciate and celebrate other people’s success in life. They don’t grow jealous or feel cheated when others surpass them. Instead, they recognize that success comes with hard work, and they are willing to work hard for their own chance at success.

10. They Don’t Give Up After the First Failure

Mentally strong people don’t view failure as a reason to give up. Instead, they use failure as an opportunity to grow and improve. They are willing to keep trying until they get it right.

11. They Don’t Fear Alone Time

Mentally strong people can tolerate being alone and they don’t fear silence. They aren’t afraid to be alone with their thoughts and they can use downtime to be productive.

They enjoy their own company and aren’t dependent on others for companionship and entertainment all the time but instead can be happy alone.

12. They Don’t Feel the World Owes Them Anything

Mentally strong people don’t feel entitled to things in life. They weren’t born with a mentality that others would take care of them or that the world must give them something. Instead, they look for opportunities based on their own merits.

13. They Don’t Expect Immediate Results

Whether they are working on improving their health or getting a new business off the ground, mentally strong people don’t expect immediate results. Instead, they apply their skills and time to the best of their ability and understand that real change takes time.
