What you should give your mum for Mother's Day

by - 17:42

I don't think I've ever met anyone who hasn't had a row with their mother. Relationships with our mothers are never easy. I argue with my mother almost constantly and we disagree on so much...she doesn't always know I disagree... For a brief while, I had decided that I was just going to do everything my mother said, never disagree, never act out because at that point- my mum and I argued so frequently that it didn't seem worth it...but she raised me to be a strong and independent woman, so I now know that I won't just keep my opinions to myself because I have a lot to say.

*(For those you who cannot be with your mums: I'm sorry. For those who don't want to be with their mums, this post may not be for you...)

Undeniably, everyone's relationships with their mums are different. I cannot and will not be 'well behaved' all of the time- who is? I love Mother's Day because it means that I get to celebrate everything that mothers sacrifice and do. But sometimes, it can evoke guilt for not always being the golden child that my mother more than deserves.

As much as I love 'Gilmore Girls', not everybody can have the best-friend relationship that Lorelai and Rory have. My mum and I went to watch 'Lady Bird' on Friday (I completely understand why Saoirse was nominated for the Oscar and I totally recommend going to see it). Not only was I reminded that some of the stupid s**t I do and feel isn't that abnormal, but also, as infuriating as mums can be, they do all that they do because they love and care about you. You may disagree with what is best for you, but doing what they think is best is always their only agenda. So if you argue about petty things all of the time,give her a break. It's supposed to be ups and downs, highs and lows.

My mum and I share some of my favourite memories and even now, I tell more about how I feel to her than I do my school friends. I'm not going to be cliché and call my mum my 'best friend' because that responsibility falls to my brother. My mum is the woman that I trust most, respect most and I believe, more than anything, that she raised me well; raised me to be my own person, make my own decisions and have my own opinions: she is my role model. I'd be glad to be half the woman she is someday.

Being a mum is the hardest job in my opinion. So what should you give your mum for Mother's Day? Your upmost respect.

Happy Mother's Day.
