meeting peoples moms for the first time is so intimidating because i cant tell if theyre a strict mom or a laid back mom and as i ride in their car i have to slowly figure out what breed of mom they are
do you ever just read a line, a single line, in a fic and you’re like, “this is it. this is it. i’m going to be screaming about this for the rest of my life”
Raise your hand if you’re straddling the line between crippling anxiety and not giving any fucks about anything
Appreciate the time you have with your Mom.
Don’t sit in your room all the time. Don’t get angry over stupid shit. Don’t get angry at her. Hold her when she cries, because as the years go by she’s going to cry a lot more. Laugh with her. Actually listen to the ‘annoying’ things she says. They are often the most important. Hold on to every moment you can. Don’t ever tell her you don’t love her. Ever. It will hurt you more after it’s all said and done, and you don’t mean it anyway. No really, don’t. Remember that she’s a person too. She has feelings and they deserve respect. She deserves respect. Don’t blame her for things outside of her control, i.e. your bad haircuts or your shitty high school friends. Tell her things. Tell her when you’re happy. Sad. Frustrated. Tell her everything, if you can. If you can’t, tell her why. Remember you’re always her baby, she’ll remind you often enough.
Don’t realise the importance of all this and a million other things 2 days before you leave home.
