Perspective and mamahood

As you know if you’ve read this blog before, the focus is all on perspective.  How our perspective changes depending on what lenses we’re wearing.

We think we’re neutral and objective but we’re not. We’re biased.  Way biased.

We see things as only we see them.  We see things based on our culture, our perspective, our history.  We see things uniquely.

The trick is teasing out our perspective.  Making the lenses that we see the world through visible.

Here’s a perspective on mamahood.  It caught my eye because I have a 13 year old.  It made me chuckle.  I hope it does for you as well.

It’s all about perspective.

3 yrs old: “Mommy, I love you”

10 yrs old: “Mom whatever!”

16 yrs old: “My Mom is so annoying!”

18 yrs old: “I wanna leave this house.”

25 yrs old: “Mom, you were right.”

30 yrs old: “I wanna go back to my Mom’s house.”

50 yrs old: “I don’t wanna lose my Mom.”

70 yrs old: “I would give up EVERYTHING for my Mom to be here ……with me.”

(Despite being all over the internet I couldn’t find an attribution for this perspective.  Thanks, whoever you are.)
