8 Times Your Mom Was Your Biggest Cheerleader
Remember those times you were feeling down, unsure of your career path, or even to go left or right? But the constant person there for you and remind you that your path a has a few bumps but to keep going.
There’s no one we can count on more than our mom. Whether it’s doling out invaluable life advice, showing her love through small gestures, or just being there when we need her the most, she’s often our biggest supporter. We gathered these stories from women to share a favorite anecdote with their mom’s actions that made a lasting impact.
1. When you needed to skip town
2. When you needed career advice
“My mom is truly my cheerleader every single day, but she was especially my most important supporter when choosing a career path. Before landing my dream job, I faced many ups and downs. I remember advancing very far in the interview process for a position with another company and ended up not being offered the job. My mom motivated me to keep moving forward and reassured me that I would end up where I was meant to be, and she was 1000 percent right. Thanks, Mom!”
3. When you needed her to reassure you
“When I was applying for jobs during my last semester of college, my mom took the time out of her day to talk me through my anxiety. I’m extremely neurotic, so every extra day I had to wait for a callback or a response to an email was another 30 minutes she stepped away from her work desk to calm me down over the phone. She read every cover letter, along with every single version of my résumé. I made her absolutely crazy, but never did she stop helping me.”
4. When your achievements were her achievements
“My mom is always sharing the stories I write on social media and giving me constant encouragement about how proud she is that I’ve found my dream job. She’s totally my biggest cheerleader — in fact, she still wears a shirt that says “cheerleader mom” from when I was an ACTUAL cheerleader in high school.”
5. When you second-guessed yourself
6. When she wouldn’t let you give up
7. When she was your everything
8. When she surprised you when you needed it the most
