Red face Too old for mom? - December 9th 2010, 05:51 AM

So I don't have a Mom, and I've never really thought it was a big deal. However lately, I've just been wanting a mom. I've had a few rough days where I just want to come home to Mom and cry and vent ya know? Is it unusual or weird for me to want that? I have a co-worker who is kind of like a mom to me, and we have been talking about things like this lately and she thinks it's perfectly normal. In fact the other day she came over just to talk because I had another "bad day" and we just watched movies and talked and it felt really great. So, my question is, is that weird? I think it kind of is, because I've never really had a mom so I shouldn't miss it, if that makes sense. Besides I'm all grown up now.

I think, at times, it is human nature to gravitate toward the love of a parent. I assume you've watched and heard friends talk to/about their mothers. Sometimes that nurturing, which is different from that of your father's, is exactly what we need.

The old saying that you can't miss what you've never had is false, sometimes, and this could be one of those moments.

It's totally normal for you to lean on someone you view in a mother-like capacity. If she is comfortable in the situation and you are as well, then there is no reason to avoid it. One is never too old for the love of a mother, and if it brings you peace of mind and is not unhealthy in any way, I can't see a problem.

Cherish those people who love you. Love them back. Sometimes that's the best we can do.

Hope that helps some...

i am not my scars and my history
i am, i am, i am who i am...i am who i am.
there are true things inside of me;
i have been afraid to see.
