How can people describe their moms in such simple words? If I had to tful describe my mom I have a feeling I would go on forever. Why? you may ask, well it is because she is one of the only people in my life that will never leave. She has seen me at my best and at my worst and she does not love me less or see me as less of a person. She has forgiven me for the countless mistakes I have made out of anger. But most importantly she has helped me overcome the biggest obstacles I have faced in my life. To some my mom may seem like the typical house wife but in reality she is so much more. Her and I have always had a bond that is so strong it can not be broken. I am after all her only daughter. Even if she’s strict I know it is only because she wants the best for me and would never let me do something that would ruin my future or emotionally hurt me. This year I started struggling with eating and constantly comparing myself to others. I was certain I was going through this alone or so I thought. My mom soon caught onto my behaviors and I could tell she was more than concerned. I was in such a bottomless pit of struggle and I didn’t know how to react to her finding out. I have been struggling with this for a while and she makes sure I eat which I may not appreciate right now but I know I will in the future. It may not seem like she’s doing enough to some but she is doing the best she can at the moment. She is always the first to notice when I am under a lot of stress. She reassures me that everything will get back to normal soon and that I have to push through life as best as I can. My mom is my rock, she is the person who will never leave and forever be by my side. She makes sure she is the person I can talk to too when I am having a bad day. She has been for me not only at my lowest when I was having a bad day everyday and I give her attitude but she’s also there for me on good days and the days that feel surreal. My mom is the best mom. I know a lot of people say their moms are the best but my mom is truly the best. I could go on forever and why she is the best mom out there. My mom is an immigrant so she is ten times harder on me when it comes to education and things that will make me a better person but I love her for it. She has shaped me into the person I am and has shown me how to put a smile on my face even through hard times. She will forever be the person I will turn to when I need advice and life gets a bit harder.
