My mom once told me to always believe in yourself. Even if your chances are slim, or everyone else doesn’t believe in that, people will look up to you because you’re sticking to what you believe in, and they will admire that in you. That was the best advise I ever got from my mom.

Be happy. For we have only one life and that too is very short.
The best advice my mother ever gave me is “Don’t let other people make the choices for you and don’t let no one push you around.”

My mom is always telling me to be independent and follow my dreams and I will live a good, happy life.

When I was young and dating men, my mom always told me to watch how my boyfriends treated their mothers. She said they would treat me the same way. I found this to be so true. I have a husband who thought the world of his mom and shows that same love to me. It’s the best advice my mom ever gave me.
