Are you like your mother?

When it comes to your mother's life and your life, how much do they resemble each other? Did you follow the same "life path" your mother did, or did you decide to go your own way? Did your mother influence your life choices, or did she teach you that her life isn't the best one you could be living?

Oh god, yes I am...and I almost hate myself for it, but it's for all the right reasons. I mean, my mother knew how to cook and clean...but I hear her in my voice whenever I'm scolding my children on their messy ways of cleaning up their chores. Help me! *Pleiades

i should say my life is totally different from my mother's.she is a traditional chinese woman.when she was born,the economial conditon was awful.she had to work hard from very early on.my mother is a brave woman,she never fear anything and she believe she can make us live better by her own hands.it is her personality that influences me a lot.now i had a good job,i often send money to my family.

I think that as I get older I get more and more like my mother. We don't look a like and we didn't follow the same path but we have very similar tastes and similar senses of humour. Some of the goofy faces I make are identical to the ones my mom makes. We generally have the same opinions about things as well. We get along very well because we have such a similar outlook of things.
