Girls - Turning into your Mother?

September 16, 2009 9:55am CST
Blokes say it all of the time - women will turn into their mothers. For me, this is not a scary concept. I love my Mother dearly and although I would not describe her as 'cool' in the social sense, she has an attitude towards life (mostly) that I would not mind taking on. As I get older, I can see both her and my Father in me and day by day I think I am more like them. So, would it be a terrible thing if you turned out just like your Mother? And can you see it happening like I can? Men, do you agree that this is the general consensus?

No way...my mom's attitude is very negative. She's not at all a people person (more of an animal hoarder) I'm very different...I believe (with effort) anything is possible and I'm more of a social type. Who's to say I won't change as I get much older..but even with all the bad experiences I've had...I still feel like the best is yet to come-bring it on.

Hi Georgina, My mum is a depressive who relies on medication to get through the day, so if I can I would like to not have to be like her when I am older, though I could see it happening since depression does run in the family Away from that when she is happy she is a nice person, and we do have the same writing. I can still remember sitting in a lecture and looking at my quickly scribbled notes and thinking, 'oh heck, that's my mother's writing!' I can't look at any of my writing without seeing her hand in it lol! She is a thinker as well, and a dreamer. I think more so before the depression took control. I would have liked to have seen her before she got depressed, she would have been amazing. So maybe if I could be my pre-depression mother I would be happy, but I wouldn't want to be the person she is now. I don't think I could handle it !! All the best, Dranz

I am so my mother... When I was younger I would always say "I am never going to be like her" Well guess what, I talk, walk, write, I am the spitting image of my mother... We both laugh about it all the time! Its not a bad thing! I love my mother, if it wasn't for her, I wouldn't be here! lol... Its just amusing to see ourselves transform into something just like our parents.
