In Honor Of Mother’s Day, 50 Daughters Share The Best Advice Their Moms Ever Imparted To Them 

This thread from Ask Reddit should inspire you to thank your mom this Mother’s Day!

41. “Make sure he loves you more.” I never understood this until I got my heart broken again and again, and now I finally think I understand what she meant. She wasn’t be callus when she said it, she was saying that women (for whatever reason) tend to love more, and love harder, and so are more susceptible to being hurt. I’ve been in two long term relationships, both of which were physically abusive. I stayed, and I loved and I got hurt badly each time. Now, I’m in a relationship with a man who’s open to showing affection with me, who cares about me and what I think, and who I don’t question whether or not he loves me or find myself fighting for his attention or love.

Btw, my mom’s not some crazy feminist and her and my dad have been happily married for 28 years.
