Why It's Important to Have a Good Relationship With Your Mom

Your mother is more than the person who gave birth to you. She helped take care of you when you were younger and did everything she could to try and give you the best life possible. Now that we’re adults and moving on in our lives (or maybe still living with our mothers to save money), it’s still important to have a good relationship with your mom.

She's always going to be there for you.

You probably have a lot of friends that you can talk to if you’re struggling in life. Sometimes you just need someone to listen, and your mother can do that. Whether it’s after a bad break up or you’ve just had a rough week, she’ll be there for you.

You'll be able to tell her anything.

Carrying off the last point, your mother will listen when you need her to. You might not want to tell her anything, and she may not want to hear everything you’re saying. That’s not because she doesn’t care, but no parent wants to hear about their child being hurt. Just know that you’ll be able to talk to her about anything when you need to, and that’s what matters.

She'll tell you if the clothes you're trying on look good or not.

It’s always good to have a second opinion when shopping. That outfit you picked out might look good on the rack, but when you put it on, it’s a whole different story. Your mom will be the first person to tell you it doesn’t look right on you. It’ll be frustrating, sure, and you may have to try on three or four (or maybe even more!) outfits before you finally find one that looks good on you. It’s better to hear it it looks bad from your mom before you buy it, than to hear it from someone else after you’ve already paid for it.

She'll steer you in the right direction.

I think we can all agree that life can be difficult. Your mom’s already been through all the struggles that life provides in your late teenage years and early 20s. If you’re conflicted about what to do in your life, just talk to your mom. She’ll be able to help you get on the right path to make your college years a little less stressful.

Your mother may be frustrating sometimes, but she’s doing it to look out for your best interests. She knows you better than most other people in your life do, and she’ll be able to help you figure out what the best path to go on in life.
