Mothers play a huge role in our lives, mothers know the art of being a friend to the children, she listens to your problems like your friend and gives your solutions like a good wise best friend. We all hope to forge a separate identity from our parents, we are their own flesh and blood after all, which means we are bound to have some traits in common. Even if you feel like you’re super different from your mother, you may be exhibiting some signs that you’re more similar to your mom than you think.
TC46 put out a post for Mother’s Day giveaway on Instagram here asking our followers, “Share something about you that’s exactly like your mom!”. And, they shared heartwarming habits and traits that they got from their moms! “I have always looked like my mom, and I love it. She’s uniquely gorgeous, strong, smart, and super sweet, so I feel pretty honoured to look like her. Plus, the feminist in me just thinks that it’s really cool to be instantly recognizable as the daughter of my awesome mother. It’s like a family legacy is being passed on through me just because I look like my mom.” – Sneha*
“The ability to cook is something #IGotItFromMyMum! I am not there yet but I have inherited her cooking skills and have grown up watching her come up with recipes on the spot!” – Ananya* “I recently got married and now I understand why my mother was cleaning everything. As a kid, I used to say that there was no need to clean the house daily but now I also find myself cleaning everything. I think we can say that I got the cleanliness habit in my blood.” – Bhavika*
“My mom taught me selflessness. She always provided me and my brothers with the best things she possibly could. She gave me the best piece from the dessert or the main dish or even my clothes. Little did I know she was being absolutely selfless and doing everything for her children (sometimes even more than I thought was possible). I inherited this selflessness, now I started saving the best stuff for my 6-month-old daughter!” – Palak*
“That perfect V-shaped chin. Naturally, I got it from my mom, both my sister and I got this from her. And guess what? My daughter now has the same chin from me, so this is a natural affair for 3 generations and future ones too…” – Somya* “I got all my facial features from my mom. They say I’m her true replica. So much so that for as long as I can remember, the fact that I look strikingly similar to my mom is the first thing anyone who has ever known her ends up saying to me, within seconds of our introduction.” – Riya*
