Why you should talk to your mom about your problems

So, of course, you talk to your mom about everything trivial like how your day went or what you would like to eat for dinner and about general things. But some people find it difficult to share their emotions and feelings with their parents. Since most dads are busy with their work, you have an excuse that because they are busy, you cannot talk to them. And nowadays, with so many moms who are also busy working, the child may end up feeling lonely. This feeling is intensified in the case of teenagers as they have so many things going on in their life. Some are bullied by their peers while some have serious body image issues and other problems. At this stage, it is essential to share your feelings with someone; a friend, sibling or your parents. Thus following are some of the reasons why talking to your mom might be a good idea.

You might think that she won’t understand but you might be surprised

As soon as the idea of sharing your feelings or problems with your mom crosses your mind, you might end up completely neglecting the idea. You might think that she would not understand what you are going through because she is an adult or she might end up scolding you instead. But you will be surprised by how understanding your mom can be. She has also gone through the same problems as you when she was young. She loves you and cares for you more than anyone in the world. And will be the best listener than you can hope for.

You can guarantee nothing but best advice and unconditional support

Your mom has seen the world and if you feel confused about something and are in need of some advice, then she is the best person to go to. She will list out all the possible suggestions and give you a piece of motherly advice that will help you in the long run.

 If you have made a mistake, she will not hesitate to point it out to you and reprimand you for it. But that is because she cares for you. Her anger will soon simmer down and she will help you rectify that mistake so that you don’t get into trouble. Your mom will love and support you unconditionally and that is something that you can expect from very few people in this world.

Sharing always helps

You might think that you can handle your feelings and emotions and solve everything on your own. And while being independent is not a bad thing but relying on your loved ones is also necessary at times. There is only so much stress and emotional burden that you can carry. If you talk to your mom about your problems, you will observe that half of your burden has already lifted. She will offer you her shoulder to lean on and her lap to lay your head on with lots of love and motherly advice. And you will feel happy about the decision to talk to her.

The world consists of both good and bad people and you may put your trust in the wrong people and end up getting betrayed. Therefore, you should hold on to those who you know can never do that; your momis one of them.

Best guidance

Teenagers often sway from the right path sometimes. It could be due to the bad company or because you wanted to experience something new. Underage drinking and drugs are often used by teenagers just for the sake of having fun or because they were forced into this habit by their peers. And if you are one of these people, then you might know how difficult it is to break this habit. If you have already recognised that you have a problem and you want to get better. Then the best solution is to talk to an adult. You might be scared of how your parents might react and rightfully so. And even if they might get terribly angry with you at first, they will offer you with the best guidance. They know what is best for you and will support you unconditionally.

Many children now hold the ideology that their parents won’t understand their problems. The generation gap is one of the reasons for this and the gap between the thinking patterns of children and parents have widened. But at the end of the day, they are our parents and if they won’t understand us then who will? And since, most children do not feel comfortable having the ‘deep talk’ with their fathers, talking with your mom is the best option. Hence, next time if you do not feel good or are having a problem, you now know who to turn to.
