Mother’s day was once a day that was extremely important to us. It was a day that we got to celebrate the most important woman in our lives, spoil her and spend the whole day together.
We’d take to social media and write a corny post how we are the luckiest in the world for having such a great mom. It was a day that seemed like it was all about bragging that your mom was greater than everyone else’s.
My mom was everything to me. She was my best friend, my confidant, my cheerleader and my biggest fan. There was not a human alive that could take the place of her and the way that she loved me.
Since losing her, Mother’s Day has went from being one of my favorite days to a day that I dread for weeks and weeks leading up to it.
Everywhere you go is a shrine, thrown right in your face that you no longer have a mom. Nearly every email, commercial and advertisement become mom related. You can’t walk into the store without a mural of cards and advertisements slapping you in the face, reminding you that you no longer have your mom to spend this day with.
It's lonely. You feel different. You are experiencing something that so many people around you have never had to go through. Nobody gets it. Nobody understands how and why you feel so alone.
No matter where you are in your grieving process and how long it’s been since your mother died, this time of year never seems to get easier. If anything, it seems like it gets worse and worse as time goes on.
Every year, it’s just another reminder. Another cause for sadness. Another reason to desperately crave and miss your mom.
Remember the way we used to take to social media to brag about how wonderful your mom was? Well now, that has turned into a morbid shrine of pictures with a bittersweet post telling the world how much you miss the most important person in your life. That is, even you can even pull yourself together enough on this day to check social media and have to see the wrath of mom posts from everyone that you know.
This day will never get easier, however, THANKFULLY, it only comes once a year and will be over soon.
