Everything Your Mother Has Ever Told You Is Right

“Blah Blah Blah” or “I’ll find out for myself” were my two main thoughts every time mother told me something. I just assumed she was wrong because she isn’t a teenager anymore so how would she know….. WRONG. She knows what she is talking about and she is right

  1.  “Don’t Date a Boy Who is Disrespectful to His Mother” Well guess what, I did. I learned the hard way that my mother was right. He is going to treat you exactly how he treats his mother.
  2. “Don’t Drink the Punch” Though I have actually never drank the punch, I have smelled it and seen it being made. Oh my goodness, no way would I drink that. I have also seen other girls drink it and we all know that didn’t end to well. Don’t drink it unless you want to be best friends with the bathroom all night.
  3. “Don’t call after 10 pm” As goofy and old fashioned as this sounds it is totally true. Even though today texting is more common than calling this rule still applies. If he texts you after 10 pm that shows you what he truly thinks of you, so imagine what he thinks when you text or call him after 10?
  4. Don’t rush into anything” At 15 I had a serious boyfriend who was two years older than me. Looking back at it, I think it is really weird. But I rushed into that relationship ignoring everything my mother ever said about it. Don’t rush into a relationship ever. You could end up making decisions you will regret or getting your heart broken.
  5. Cross Your Legs” Do it. Just do it. 
  6. Don’t Show Cleavage” To this day every time I get dressed that is something I make sure is fully covered. It makes me uncomfortable knowing that I am just flaunting my body when I am showing cleavage. We also all know what we say when we see a girl revealing everything she has…. you don’t want anyone to say that about you.
  7. Read Your Bible” The Bible is full of advice, mood boosters and all around good stories. Being prepared with the knowledge of the Bible is something that will help you in everyday life.
  8. Kill Them With Kindness” We all know there is nothing worse than a bitter girl fight. But don’t stoop to their level of being rude and starting rumors, rather be so kind to them that it just eats them alive.
  9. Actions Speak Louder Than Words” We all know this is true. You could be the sweetest, most considerate girl but the second you get up on that table and dance multiple opinions are formed by the people watching you, before they even get to know you. Remember, first impressions are the most impactful.
  10. You Are Only As Good As The Company You Keep” Yes. This is completely true. I was “best” friends with a group of girls in high school that had questionable reputations which made me have a questionable reputation even though I had never done anything to earn that reputation besides be friends with that group of girls.
  11. A Smile Can Bright Someone’s Day” We all know this is true. So no matter how hard it might be for you smile, do it. You could change someone’s whole day.
  12. Don’t Go Back” An Ex is an Ex for a reason. Keep it that way and move on. The future is brighter than the past.
  13. Don’t Post Anything On Facebook You Wouldn’t Want Your Grandmother To See” Everyone looks at Facebook and makes judgements at the snap of their fingers. Keep your social media clean.
  14. Don’t Wear To Much Make-Up” Learn to wear your make-up with out caking it on. Make is there to help enhance your natural beauty. Natural is pretty.

25 Reasons Why Having a Best Friend is Better Than a Boyfriend

  1. Borrowing clothes isn’t the same. His clothes won’t make you look like a perfect ten, but more like number 10 of the football jersey you are wearing. 
  2. You’ll get more likes on your Instagram pictures with your best friend. People get sick of seeing you and boyfriend all the time.
  3. He won’t care if you are having a bad hair, he probably wouldn’t even notice. Your best friend would come over with bobbypins and lots of hairspray.
  4. Who else are you going to send screenshots of the text messages he sends you and ask, “Like what do I say back to that?” 
  5. Make-up. He doesn’t know the difference between a smokey eye and a cat eye, but your best friend knows that neither of the those are a good look. 
  6. He won’t dance around to Timber by Ke$ha with you while you’re getting ready to go out, but you may get some movement out of him if he plays a good game of Fifa. 
  7. You can’t count on him to always have lip gloss.
  8. He won’t know the different between Steven Madden and John Madden.
  9. You can’t try out new Pinterest hair and make-up ideas on him, but if you can kick him to the the curb pronto. 
  10. You can’t tell him when you think your waiter is cute, but when you’re with your best friend you can leave your number or hers. We all do it.
  11. He won’t be able to be your “Other Half” at a party and if he is prepare to not being able to make the “the best snapchat my story” you ever made…. since last week. 
  12. You can’t order the whole Taco Bell menu with him on a Tuesday afternoon and then go eat dinner later that night, then follow it by some ice cream from Braums with out a little judgement.
  13. He won’t tell you when your make-up/hair/outfit looks bad, but your best friend will tell you then follow it up by taking some pictures and laughing at you.  
  14. He won’t do a juice cleanse or the new fad diet with you, but your best friend would do it and convince you cheat and go get a taco and pretend like it never happened.
  15. He will never understand why your Starbucks drink order is like fifteen words long but your best friend knows it is because it is less calories, more caffeine and of course a latte, duh. 
  16. He probably won’t make you a picstitch on your birthday of your best and worst pictures and then post it on Instagram, and if he does he is probably a stage five clinger. 
  17. You don’t wear the same size shoe. Enough said. 
  18. He will never understand the power of the monogram. It makes everything you own so much more classier. 
  19. Binge watching Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill or RomCom movies on Netflix while all snuggled in to bed is only fun with your best friend. 
  20. Pinterest is like a foreign language to him and you don’t have the patience to teach him but thank goodness your best friend is fluent. 
  21. Doing a homemade avocado face mask with him is just plain weird. 
  22. He will never be down to go get his nails done. 
  23. Target shopping trips will be boring. Say bye to walking through the clothes. the shoes, the make-up but most importantly the dollar spot.
  24. His pockets are not going to hold all of your stuff when you do not want to carry a purse. 
  25. Your best friend will always be there for you even when he is not.
