Mothers are special, and no matter what happens, no one can take their place. A mother is the first teacher and an inspiration to her child. It is our goal to be like her.
Here are some things that we do, that make us realize we’re becoming like our mothers:
1. You start putting others’ needs before yours
A Mother is an epitome of selflessness. She makes sure everyone’s need is taken care of. When we start thinking the same way, that’s when we realize that we’re becoming like her. Whether it’s about helping your friends or taking care of your family, you start putting them above your priorities.
2. You start understanding the value of money
Money is easy to spend but hard to earn. And that’s why our moms keep a strict check on how it is used. You start to realize why she did that and start keeping a check on your account. You learn about spending it wisely and saving it.
3. You become hygienic!
Clean bedroom, check. Clean bathroom, check. Clean bedsheets, check. You cannot bear dirt around you. Just like your mum! At least now she doesn’t have to shout at you to keep things clean!
4. You’ve learnt a way to reuse things instead of throwing them
One thing you saw your mom doing while growing up was, reusing things that you threw out. Eventually, you realize you’ve adopted her policy of reusing. Old clothes, books, anything that can be reused.
5. You start taking hold of your responsibilities
A mother takes care of an entire household, looks after her children, and even manages to work. You start realizing that you’ve become like her when you take hold of your own tasks. You’re not dependent on anybody to do things for you.
6. Kindness becomes your second nature
A Mother is so kind, it amazes us how she can be like this. You realize you’ve started becoming like her when you inherit her kindness the very same way she is. You become compassionate and sensitive towards the issues you ignored before.
7. Life is all about the small joys
It hits you that there is ultimately no “big” joy in life, and the beauty of life is in the little things, the little happiness. You gradually realize where you learnt it from – you’ve always seen your mom put up a smile on her face, no matter what, because that’s her mantra.
