“To the person without a positive mother figure this Mother’s Day…

I know your heart aches for the mothers we so often see in the movies and Hallmark commercials.

The moms of friends and loved ones who we wish raised us the way we deserved to be treated.

The moms who gives unconditional love and always have our best interests in mind.

The same-blooded person you can lean on in your times of need, vulnerability, confusion, and heartbreak.

And even to lean on in the times of joy, laughter, and triumph.

And unfortunately, it is simply not your mother.

In fact, your mother is nothing but a source of headache, pain, and unease.

You feel a pang of sadness every time Mother’s Day comes around.

And perhaps it’s even the day tensions rise more so than usual between you and family.

You feel left out of all of the mom appreciation posts.

You can’t help but feel a little bit of jealousy for all the children attached at their mom’s hip.

You know, the ones who consider their mom a ‘best friend.’

What’s that like? You will never know. And it hurts.

Sometimes, you even wonder to yourself, ‘Is it all my fault? What did I do to deserve this?’

I want you to know,

You are not alone.

You are not alone.

You are not alone.

And you are deserving of love.

I see you. I hear you. I am you.

You are not broken, you were simply chosen to be strong.

And boy, you are doing a great job at it.”
