A Mother’s Love Essay

There are many people that walk in and out of your life. It’s hard to know which of those people you can trust and will understand you and which will just leave you behind. They’re will always be people who will let you down.

Its great knowing that family will never leave your side. My mother has been there with me through everything, to be my role model, my guidance and my light. Without her I would have no idea what I would do with myself. A mothers love is something special that can only be shared you and her. My mom has influence me so much in so many different ways.From when I was young, she always treated me like an adult. She never looked down upon me because when I was a child, she treated me as equal.

She tried very hard to explain to me things I did not understand and would phrase it to make it make sense to me. She taught me at a very young age how to handle situations in a grown up manner. Whenever I was faced with a situation that she knew I could not handle, she wouldn’t do it for me, but guide me through it with the knowledge that I would learn from my mistakes. She was always very patient with me, and understood my need to re-do things over and over until I get them perfect.One of the reasons why I admire my mother so much is because of how strong she is. We have had very long talks about her life, and she has gone into detail of her childhood. Her life wasn’t exactly rough, but it wasn’t the easiest. She became a very independent woman at a young age and grew up a little too fast then she planned.

My mother is very street smart. She knows everything about anything because of the fact that she grew up so young. Her entire life has carried the weight and burden of everyone else’s problems on her shoulders. This has made her to be a very caring and generous person.She is always used to reaching out and lending a hand no matter what even at her own expense.

I love that about her so much, her ability to keep giving and giving and never asking for anything in return from anyone. The only thing that makes her happy is knowing that she has helped someone through something. I have seen my mother at her worst. When I was around seven years old, my parents began to fight a lot. I was extremely young and really didn’t understand why they were always so angry at each other.

All I knew was that it was making my mom really upset every night and would make her sad.After about a year of this, I was sat down by my mom and dad and they explained to me that they didn’t feel like they loved each other anymore. It broke my heart. I couldn’t understand the idea of my parents not being together. I thought everything was all my fault. My mom somehow was able to get it through my thick seven-year-old skull that wasn’t my fault and that I didn’t do anything wrong.

Through our little talks, she helped me through the entire divorce process, teaching me and letting me know its okay to fall out of love with someone. I still don’t understand to this day how she was able to do it, but I am glad she was.My mother is courageous and brave in so many different ways as well. She never lets anyone know that she is upset or hurting, especially if it is to seem stronger for someone else. Both my younger sister and my father suffer from bipolar depression and severe anxiety. They bond together through their illness because they understand each other at that level. My mother and I on the other hand bond at the level that we have to be there and be strong for my sister and my dad. My mother’s dad is a alcoholic and has anger issues that she had to deal with her whole life.

Because of his outbursts and him letting out his anger on her taught her how to handle people with mental illnesses when they are upset. She always knows exactly what to say to get them out of their funks. Why I feel such a sense of influence from my mother is simply because of how much advice I receive from her on a daily basis. Whether it’s a simple what I should eat to how to approach a friend about a situation to helping me with girl problems, my mother ALWAYS knows. She always knows exactly what to do, how to approach it, when to, and why.I never hem and haw or argue over what she says to do, because most of the time, I agree completely. We have the same thought pattern and mind set, sometimes I just need a little boost to reinsure what I already know, or to hear in words what I could formulate.

Any goal or dream I have ever wished to aspire, my mom has always told me that I can do it. It didn’t matter if at the time I was three years old and there was no such thing as a space cowboy, if I wanted to do it, my mother said I could. She always made it a point to believe that you can do anything you ever want in life as long as you aspire to achieve that goal and work towards it.Not only does she simply sit there and tell me I can do it, she helps me through it. Every dream I ever wanted to aspire, whether it was playing little league baseball or finally jumping off the high dive, my mom has been there for me every step of the way.

The bond between a mother and their child is special and sacred. Nothing can break it. No matter how much you mess up, your mother will be there for you. She will catch you, dust you off and send you right back in the world.

Because no matter what, your mother will always love you.
