When I was a teenager I hated listening to my mom tell me her little tidbits of wisdom. I was a little brat though and since then have learned that she was so right! I was at that age where I thought I knew it all. She however did know it all and she tried to tell me but I wouldn’t listen.
My mom used to tell me:
“If your friends jumped off a cliff…would you?”
“You don’t need friends. They won’t be there when you really need them.”
“If it was a snake it would have bitten you by now.”
I have to admit that some of her sayings (when I think about it now) sound mean but she did have good intentions. She taught me to be independent.
“If you want it done right do it yourself.”
“Do not be dependent on a man.” – She was a single mom.
She didn’t need a man though and she proved that. She learned how to fix things around the house when they broke. She was and still is a very strong woman. She taught me to be strong too!
