My mom always amazes me. She is always pushing us to not make the same mistakes as she did in her younger years, but I wish she had a better way of getting that across. Her wisdom is deep, but we're always pushing her on every one of her points. It's only after much stress on everybody's part that we realize, yes, mom is right. But why in the world does it have to get to that? I know I have my part to blame, but where does all of this pushing come back from? It's a cycle. Mom tells me how her mother pushed her to do things, and she fought back and made her own mistakes, but that fighting back still occurs in the next generation (me). How can this cycle be broken? This is so ridiculous!
