A Mother is an epitome of power, love and sacrifice. She is a woman who can only influence us in the most positive light. A Mother has always been portrayed as a strong individual who bears her child for nine months, nurtures it until the child is ready to be welcomed into a new world. Her selflessness is beyond words and her support system is beyond comparison.
A mother fosters her child from a little one to a grown up individual. Here are the list of things you’ll discover if you’ve been raised by a strong mother, who’s been a constant source of inspiration for you.
YOU LEARN THE ART OF SELF-RELIANCE
You don’t need a third person to take care of your needs because your mother has always taught you be independent, self sufficient and fight the world with courage. You learn by example that you are capable of living a happy life without having to compromise on any wants and desires. She reached you how you can have it all. You learn that you can build a home, raise kids and do the dishes all while having a thriving career. You pretty much learn how to be a super woman.
YOU UNDERSTAND THE MEANING OF UNEQUIVOCAL LOVE
Complete selflessness, a complete ability to love unconditionally and wholeheartedly. Selfless love is one of the most beautiful things to be around. You saw your mother sacrifice her time, health and youth for you yet she never gloated about anything she is missing out on. She always had a smile on her face and was happy in giving more and more of herself.
SHE TAUGHT YOU THE VALUE OF MONEY
Not because she didn’t love you enough to fulfil your demands, but the prime motive behind her actions was to teach you the importance of hard earned money. Also, she wants you to be strong enough to face situations where life seems to be disappointing.
SHE WILL PESTER YOU UNTIL YOU’RE OUT OF YOUR COZY BED.
You cannot dare to avoid her incessant shouts to move out of your bed early in the morning. She wants you to understand the value of time and respect it because she knows the value of time more than you. She is always trying to inculcate strong habits in you so that you realize the importance of every second in your life and make the most of it.
YOU LEARN NEVER TO LOOK BACK.
You learn to let all the “what ifs” and “have beens” . You learn not to look back and wonder why life turned upside down and why is it the way it is . You just keep going forward and let the past be an experience. You learn that everything that happened got you to where you belong now, even if it is nothing you ever wished for.
A Strong mother is a guiding light of inspiration. No matter how much you try to derive motivation from other people or their stories, a strong mother is the one you should look upto and learn. Her perseverance, selflessness and patience is what you need to inculcate within yourself.
