Are you close with your mother?
October 8, 2007 8:17am CST
This afternoon, my Mom called me. She told me that some unhappiness happened between her and her best friend. She felt badly,so she called me. She knew that I have no idea what had happened,but she wanted me to listen. Most of time,our old Mom never tell us about their relationship. I'am happy because I'm the first one she wants to call. My Mom and I are very close. We share secrets. She knows almost everything about me,even I have left home since 18 when I went to college. When and where I met my first boyfriend, and Who he is.What type of the guy will be my Mr Right. What I do after work. My hobbies. My close friends's name etc. When I need help,she is the 1st one I would call. I told her everything because I trust her. It seems like strange to some people that adult daugher get along well with her older and older mother. But It's real. I'm proud of it. I think that's a naturally kindred relationship . Are you close with your mother?

I always been close to my mother. We don't call each other much or see each other much, but that doesnt matter. WE've been calling each othe more since I'm pregnant. I know she,s there to give me advice. We are like best friend. She helped me when I was down, but I've done the same thing for her. She's my mother, my friend and also my role model

Hi Tujiagirl. Well, I am glad to hear that you are that close with your mother. Basically, I am close with my mom but not that kind of "close" as you and your mother. My mother is someone that like to hide her true feeling all the time and I am someone that don't really know how to talk. I know she loves everyone of us very much but we just somehow don't really talk about things and it's only things between the inner of me and her. Sounds weird, right? Haha. She is quite particular with which type of bf I will have, so, I know most of the guy will never reach her expectation, so we never talk about this. So, if it happened which guy and who confessed to me or I am interested in, I will never bring it out. My mother is someone that is very great, so nearly everything she will able to handle, guess she won't really bring her "true" problem to us. I mean I am close with my mother but..haha..doesn't seem to be really that close after I read yours. Haha.

There is a notion that son is often close with mother and may not get along well with father,girl is often close with father and may not get along well with mother. Now many people here and I prove that girls can get along well with mothers too. Thank you to respond.

I am pretty close to my mom too. We don't get to communicate daily though, even if we live in the same vicinity. She is always busy with her business, and so am I with our own business and our kids. She spends a lot of time with my siblings, as they are working with her in the family business too. I used to be with her in that business, but when my fiance and I decided to build our own, I had to divert my attention to our own business. My mother comes to visit me or calls me every now and then when she needs something,or during those times when she has some concerns that she cannot openly discuss with my younger brothers and sisters. When I prepare something special to eat for my family, I make it a point to send some for her and it always makes me feel that I'm sharing a part of me to her. She does the same thing too, and sometimes it surprises me when she would call me over to tell me that she had something for me. I just love it because it makes me feel that no matter how busy we both are, she still remembers me everynow and then.

I'm happy there is other lucky girl who handles the problem well. Maybe someday when I get married I would not call her so much. Maybe I don't have as much time as now to keep in touch with her,but it doesn't mean we don't love each other anymore. Thank you to response. Wish you lucky! I hope one day I can solve all the financial problem and she can to live with me in this city.

None of my family is overly close, though it's not that we don't get along. I probably speak to my mum roughly once a week, but it's never about anything too personal. It's normally just a conversation that just skims the surface of our lives, never delving too deeply. If anything, it's a bit more of a go-to relationship. I call just to see how things are going back home, she calls if she has a question relating to the computer, mobile phone or writing a report. I know that I could make the effort and develop a stronger relationship with her, but I know that I won't. I'm happy living my life, and letting her live hers.

Hi,kriszelunka. This situation may begin since you are a teenager. I had a hard time with my mother when i was teenager. When the day I found she was as normal as other housewive and there was no gorgeous thing had happened to her, I didn't want her go to my room anymore. I yelled to her. I said that she could never understand me. You can imagine how bad I was then. But we get over it. Now,we get along well with each other. May be we're lucky ones.

Mother is our first tuitor after we came to this world. She not only takes care of us but also guide us. They tell us what is right,what is wrong,what we can do ,what I can't do. When we make mistake,they forgive us and give us another chance. Whatever we do,where we are,she is the one who will always worry us,guide us,surport us. They never give up us.

Yeah,you're lucky too. If you get along well with you mother,that felling is great. At least you don't worried about the surporting thing. Because your family will be your back whatever you do. Thank you for your blessing. Thank you for your response too. Good luck!

Congrats!!! to you because your mother takes you as her best friend. And you should be proud to be her 'recycle bin' and it is not an easy way to get or possess that such common communication between mom and daughter. I'm close to my mother and father (parents), they will tell me everything that they consider as 'highly confidential' because I'm a good 'recycle bin' to them, never explode at mouth for any secret, only at stomach level.

Yes, I am very much close with my mother and my mother is very dear to me. I remember and I know I would never forget how much my mother took care of me when I was a kid. She always gave me the best of what she have and she never get tired of taking care of me no matter how naughty I was when I was a kid. I really love her.
