Today is the birthday of the person who’s my life. This person had a huge impact in the way I am today. This person taught me life’s greatest lessons, and shaped the way I saw the world. And you want to know who this is? My mom.
My mom is literally the best person you can ever meet; she’s intelligent, intellectual, trustworthy and humorous. Well, she has always been the same, when most people I’ve seen in my life slowly take off their masks, she never did, she never put on a mask. She has always been herself to every single person and she has even been judged for it. But well, I would’ve never learnt to be myself had she not been. I’ve had practical lessons.
Everyone, once they become adults, realise all the wrong they did to their mothers. They then start treating her like she’s some goddess, somebody out of the world. Well, I once asked my mom what she thought about this and her answer was,
“Oh well, had they already treated her like a normal woman, they wouldn’t have to do this. The thing is, people think they’re mothers are gods, are superhuman and they start treating them like that. They don’t realise that mothers are also humans and they go through the same things that others go through. A mother needs love, care. She wants to be happy that the souls she brought into this world would always remember her, love her. That’s all that a mom wants.”
Her answer left me dumbstruck. Well yes, of course, even I’ve ignored my mom at times, but my mom, understands. My mom accepts that she has gone through all that I’ve gone through and that she understands. She just tells me what to do. And she’s always right. Always. Every single time.
My mom is my best friend, and I so want to be like her. Be a strong woman like her. My mom has inspired me that being good isn’t that bad. And being good isn’t that hard.
I love you, mom, and I hope next year I will be able to give you something. And I hope, that, this year you’ll be happier than the earlier year. I hope that you fulfil your beautiful wishes and well, mom, happiest birthday ever! I love you tons and tons and tons!
