“Strong mothers are not the ones that have never struggled. They are the ones that never give up despite their struggles.”
It’s a marvelous thing to wonder how someone is willing to take full responsibility for another human being. We never truly understand now what they have gone through to raise us and probably will not until we have to experience it ourselves. It’s the only undying love we’ll encounter from another person throughout our entire life.
She wakes up every morning with a whole schedule in her mind and we are always in her though. To put someone else first instead of herself, our mothers don’t give it a second thought. She consistently worries about us even if we’re fully grown and independent. There are no boundaries to her love for us. She is the most selfless person we’ll ever come across in our life. Even if she had to starve, she’ll always feed us. She has to cook, work, and maintain the house while looking after us. At the end of the day, she never complains. It’s certain that must she feel tired once in a while, going through this every day, but she hides her tears and never shows her pain.
There are so many expectations from society, and people are always waiting to point fingers at the mothers for their children’s mistakes. She’s tolerating a lot already, it’s unfair that she has to take that burden too. We can’t change society but we can live our lives well so no one can blame our mothers, she deserves to hear people praising how well she raised us.
Every person is different, they have different intentions for the and others. But all the mothers in the world have only one intention and that is for their children to have the world. She’s the comfort place for us. She listens to our worries, tries to understand, and explains things to us without hurting our feelings.
She didn’t have a manual to raise us so well. Instead, she became a manual for us, guiding us along the correct path and always being there for us at each step. Never underestimate her love. She’s not doing any of this out of obligation, but we always can take a little burden out of her life. Let’s be more attentive to her and make sure she feels the importance of her being in our lives, though we can never truly pay her back for all the love she gave us.
