Whatâ€™s your favorite piece of advice your mom gave you?
Treat other's the way you want to be treated!
To be happy.
I was a very shy girl when I was young and would come home from school crying because "no one played with me." My mom once told me, "no one will come to you, you have to throw yourself in the circle and be the one to try to make friends." To this day, as an adult woman, whenever I'm uncomfortable or feeling shy, I "throw myself in" and try to make others feel at ease!
I was lucky to have a few mother figures in my life, each very different and had a special view on life.
My mother: Let sibilings be siblings, they will fight but don't worry they won't kill each other and they will work it out cuz they are family and there is nothing more important than that.
My stepmother: Treat others how you want to be treated, walk in others shoes you never know what demons they might be facing.
My grandmother: Family is loyalty, and if your brother or sister asks you for something you don't ask questions you trust they had good reason, stand by them no matter what.
