Fights with the people we love are not uncommon. Altercations are a by-product of living closely and interacting on the daily. Thus, it’s not uncommon to feel the urge to sometimes lash out at our parents, or even our mother who has raised and nurtured us.
When you are faced with these moments, try to take a deep breath and count to three. In these intervening seconds, try to remember that words once uttered can inflict the gravest wounds that will scar forever. And maybe, just maybe, you will be saved from hurting your mother — that person in our lives whom we sometimes take for granted and sometimes don’t appreciate enough.
We’ve curated these cautionary quotes for you. We hope they will be a reminder on how to treat our mothers right.

When you hurt yourself, there is one person beside yourself who hurts even more. Your mother.
Just because she’s your mom and she’s going to love you forever, no matter what – you can’t treat her just any old way and think it doesn’t matter. Don’t treat the person who loves you the most… the worst. Don’t take her for granted. She may not let you see it, but your shortness, impatience and harsh words make her steal away to a quiet place and cry. Her heart hurts to understand why you seem angry with her. She will not always agree with you, but she will always love you. And it doesn’t matter how old you are, or how old she is, treasure your mom. You’ll never have another one.
Keep calm and respect your mother.
