Mothers are awesome. We are not saying that Dads are not. But let’s just say that the world is a little biased towards mothers because they indeed win against Dads by a few points when it comes to cooking yummy things and getting the best of presents.
When we are born, we can’t imagine our life without our mother for the first few years. And well, why just the first few years? Nobody can actually imagine their whole life without their mother, because they are such strong backing pillars for us. Mothers are special beings. They are like superheroes disguised as mere humans. They are also like a form of angels.
We’ve all grown up with the love and care our mothers have given us, and now, we’re one of them. So every time someone asks you what your experience of being a mother is like, tell them you’re happy and satisfied. You should be proud of what you are, rather than letting people think that being a Mother is nothing special. It’s no ordinary job, and here are reasons you should feel proud to be a mother.
1. You brought new life to this planet
It’s an honor, a privilege and a blessing to be able to bring new life to this planet. Not everyone can do it. You could, and have done it. And you should feel proud that you have taken a step towards bringing new life and taking the human race forward. It’s indeed a holy and noble thing to do.
2. You educate kids
As a mother, your job doesn’t end at just giving birth to kids. You educate them, and this education is not just limited to making them do their school homework. You also teach them manners and etiquettes, give them life lessons, and teach them how to be a good human being in general. You teach them things that no school ever can, and thus, you are their primary source of knowledge and answers for anything and everything in life.
3. You sacrifice
Some mothers give up on their careers and jobs to be able to bring up kids and focus wholly and solely on them. And at other times, you sacrifice on your personal time, your parlor appointments and what not to be able to make it to their school events, their doctor visits etc. If the kids want more food, you take it out of your plates and give it to them when there’s no more left on the table. You do whatever it takes to keep the kids happy and satisfied, and in the process you make a lot of compromises and sacrifices. And you should be really proud of that, because it isn’t something that everyone does.
4. You’re a Multitasker
You are like a Doctor, a Teacher, a Playmate, a Counselor and a lot more to your kids. You multitask to get their clothes, food, homework, play time, health and everything else sorted. This is a skill that develops only when you become mothers and have the responsibility of kids on you, and nobody else has this kind of energy and enthusiasm to do so much for someone else in life. It’s only mothers who do this tirelessly for unrecorded number of hours everyday, and for their whole life.
5. You know what’s best
You’ve given birth to your kids, and have seen them grow up very closely. Only you know what their mood swings and tantrums are like, and only you know how to cheer them up on a gloomy day. No TV, no nanny, no friend can be there for them as much as you can, and in the ways you can. You know what’s best for their life in general, and that’s perhaps the reason why kids always turn to their mothers for advice in the most important of matters.
It’s quite common for people to ask new mothers on why they chose to have kids. It’s also easy for people to say that they don’t want to have children because it’s a lot of work. But the truth is, once you have kids, it all feels worth it. And all mothers would vouch for it! One should feel proud to be a Mother because you bring happiness and joy to your kids, in ways that nobody else can.
