At some point in your life, words will fly out of your mouth and you will come to the conclusion that you’re turning into your mother. Even if you love your mother dearly, this isn’t something that you’re looking forward to.
The good news is, you’ve recognized what is happening so you can start to shape it before it shapes you. Take a good, long look at your mother and how she has influenced your life both for the good and the bad (you may not be perfect, mom, but we love you). Decide what you would like to keep and what you would like to pass you by. Start cultivating the good parts and correcting the bad – this will require actual work on your part!
Everyone is defined by their experiences but we are not held hostage by them. You have the power to determine your future.
