    Default Important Lessons your mother taught you.

    Because mothers know best! As you get older, you find that mother was right all along. What things was she right about?

    "Beauty is pain" - My mom means the processes we go through to look attractive or make things pleasing to the eye can take considerable effort & be inconvenient or even somewhat painful. Comfort is overrated, basically. Maybe this sounds crazy to some, but it makes sense to me. As a result, I'd rather be a bit uncomfortable & "buttoned up" than to look sloppy. It represents a level of care & thought, and that level should be appropriate to the situation. There's a correlation between beauty & how much one cares about something.

    In a larger way, I took this to mean that making things aesthetically pleasing is a process, one which can have obstacles. Nothing just happens on its own; few things are beautiful by accident. I see the work, creativity & thought behind beautiful things, and so I can also appreciate them on a level that goes beyond their appearance.

    My mother taught me to be empathetic to people. Something I don't completely grasp quite yet.. but I realize as I've been out in the world I have a higher sensation of this as a result of her teachings.

    My mother is the one that taught me to be independent and self-sufficient. She also taught me that women do just as much work, and just as hard of work, as men, through her lifestyle in the struggle to support us.

    She also taught me patience and hard work, and how everyone has to do their part to make something matter. She taught me tradition and the importance of it.

    - try to put yourself in the other person's shoes- aka be more empathetic!

    - try not to make a total mess of the kitchen while cooking... it's also easier to keep clean if you clean as you go

    - whether you feel like it or not, smile... it makes a big difference when interacting with others

    - grocery shopping is cheaper if you make a list first

    - there is no worse shame than being a disappointment (not taught intentionally in the least, but by punishment method! also why I went for a few years without talking to my family...)

    Don't be too soft with women.

    And tbh, I could be kind of a sucker when I was younger. She wouldn't have told me if I wasn't.

    *Tomato soup is really comforting. In fact, food is one of the best things about being alive.
    *Have a good relationship with the universe, and good things will come.
    *Work hard and you will succeed.
    *Never stop being yourself, fight for what you want.
    * Always stay in touch with your family, you shouldn't tackle life by yourself.
    *Exercise, eat good foods, make friends, and be an active member of life every day, and you will be happier.
    *Keep your house clean.

    (Probably much more, those are the first things that come off the top of my head.)

    My mother is a dip. The only lesson she taught me that has stayed, is not to be like her!

    My Mother is indeed the pearl and guiding light of my upbringing.
    Without her influence I would likely have turned out to be an uncultured barbarian.
    Every day of my life I am thankful for many, many lessons she taught me.
    The first few that come to mind are:

    (1) When dealing with people, speak to them as A PERSON, not THE POSITION they are working in.
    (2) Never let anyone who is trying to annoy or harass you get a rise out of you. That's the worse outcome for them, to be a failure.
    (3) When someone is a thorn in your side, kill them with kindness.
    (4) Eat healthy, live healthy, be clean, be fit, and dress well, and you will be treated with respect wherever you go.
    (5) Open doors for ladies, period.
    (6) If you are interested in a girl, give her some flowers and say "Hello" to her.
    (7) Don't risk anything you can't afford to lose.
    (8) It's not just the length of your life that matters, quality of life is just as important.
    (9) Be a good guest in the homes of others if you ever wish to be invited back.
    (10) Don't ever call me a Saint, Saints are boring, I am not.
