You look JUST like your mom....

I don't know many people who like to hear that, I am no exception to that, I do however think that my mom is beautiful and had things not gone the way that they have the last uh 15 years she would (probably) still be very beautiful, but I hate to hear it, it makes me cringe, because just because you look just like a person doesn't mean you are LIKE that person.  For some reason I have always associated the 2... And if I know ANYTHING its that I am NOTHING like my mother, especially when it comes to being a mother.  Anyway, I love my mom, I wish things were different but you can't change people and addicts have to choose to be helped or you're just wasting your time......

I'm always cautious telling someone they look just like...any family member. It's definitely risky!

I, for one, do not want to be compared. Not in looks, not in personality. I want to be me.

That is certainly a loaded comment to make. My mother has always struggled with people saying that to her.

We love our grandmother so much which makes watching her being completely consumed by addiction so painful.

Amazingly, my mother has risen above all of that to become a beautiful and righteous woman. So now when someone says I am just like my mother, I consider it a huge compliment.

Similarly, because of the mother/wife you have chosen to be, when your boys are told they are just like you, they can be buoyed up and honored by the compliment.

I've been so out of the loop lately but it is so nice to check in and see how things are going with your family. You continue to inspire me through your faith and happy nature!

I definitely do not take it as a compliment if someone says that I am like my Mom. ugg.
