    Instead of sharing it with strangers,
    But you could apply that to anything on this forum. :erm:

    I'm sure telling the actual mums would make it an unforgettable day...
    I actually thought that this thread was a really cute gesture and surely it's evident that if you're posting here expressing gratitude that you'll be showing it irl too.

    well i wasnt sure if everyone on this thread was planning on telling all the stuff to their mums irl. if you do, that great
    its like them people on instagram that write essays on how much they low their mum dad whatever, where in reality no one gives a damn, and then end up not even telling that specific person

    Why the heck are you guys posting it on a student forum where it's never going to reach ur parent, just trying to get attention from other people.
    It's like when kids wish their mum a happy birthday on Facebook, just tell them instead of getting reactions from other people wth.

    Well I was assuming that everyone had already said this stuff to their mums, also it was to raise awareness, that your parents are not around forever so you should make the most of them while they're around.

    Isn't that what Mother's Day is for anyway?
    What's point of posting on here if they've said it to their mum because literally it's having no effect on their mum, just try to get sympathy from other users by saying "I still love u even though u did this and that". That just contradicts everything because they're trying to turn it on them.
    I don't get these things one bit

    well if you don't get it why post? I don't think anyone wants to get sympathy anyway. TSR offers a place for you to share your thoughts with a certain level of anonymity, maybe users would feel more comfortable putting their feelings across via their virtual persona rather than in real life.

    Some people are just bitter and want to complain about the "gosh darn kids these days!!! *shakes fist*"

    Whilst I am not the type to post huge essays about my mum on Instagram or Facebook, I know that she would appreciate it, just like she would appreciate me posting about her in this thread. It's nice for your mum to show ~everyone~ how amazing she is.

    And if you had/have a terrible mother, then it's a chance to vent about your feelings (i.e. what forums are for lmao), and you can find support from people who have been though the same thing.

    This thread is a fab idea. People should just chill, and stop searching for negativity in everything.

    thanks mum for being a normal mum and loving me. not.
    (Original post by bluemadhatter)
    Thank you for attempting to be an "alright" mum despite not being alright inside.
    Spoiler:

    Thanks mum for having kids despite knowing you were too mentally messed up to look after them. And thanks for "trying" to be great to us despite not even knowing how to deal with yourself. I appreciate all the little things you did to make us turn out normal and happy but unfortunately it didn't really work out. Oh well, I still love you :hugs: and I hope grandma goes to sleep and doesn't wake up soon so you can be the mum you always wanted to be Although I feel like even then when the source of the problem disappears, you still have to sort out yourself which could takes years so.... Thanks for putting us first most of the time even though you needed it most.

    Are you an idiot? I'm pretty sure most of us wake up on Mother's Day and wish our Mums a happy Mother's Day. No harm in raising awareness for the occasion on TSR? No one is trying to get attention. If anyone is, it's you posting such stupid comments on a great thread. And who, other than the recipient, reacts to you wishing them a happy birthday? Lmao. :rofl:

    The first paragraph of the OP makes me so sad.

    'One day of the year where we celebrate all the good that our mums do for us'

    Showing appreciation and acknowledging her efforts on just one day is quite sad.

    I v much doubt the OP only appreciates his mum on Mother's day. :dunce:

    It probably just could've been phrased better but I'm pretty certain you understood what he meant.

    There is no need to be so pedantic. >.>

    True...but it was traditionally a day where servant daughters were given the day off to visit their mothers. Anyway, of course mothers should be appreciated because they are not around all the time, like I said in my OP
