Things my mother taught me...

*Mother is only half a word.

*Do NOT assume that someone knows what they're talking about, just because they are old enough in years to be called an 'adult'.

*'Relatives' are the people with the genetic pool that you are born in to. 'Family' are the people that you love. These are not the same people in a lot of cases. If you would not be around these people if they were not related, then don't be around them anyway.

*Ducking does not always work; never get pinned or backed into any kind of space. These days DHR might be the answer.

*If at first you don't succeed...don't do like mother and try marriage another seven (7) times. (I do wish she'd try sky diving.)

*If your partner is driving you 'crazy' during dating, they will continue to be that way after marriage; they are what they are -- don't try to change them, just move on to someone who IS compatible. Bitching constantly will NOT change another person; it just makes them bitchy, too.

*If you did not do something, yet it is being demanded that you tell who did do it (but you have no idea), give your best shot at telling who did it anyway. This way, at least, YOU will not get whipped/beaten for simply not knowing who did whatever it was.

*Life is not fair; it's least fair with those who should matter the most in your life.

*Never marry for money or security; no other person is worth tying your life to (especially since no one knows how little time we have on this planet) due to financial or so-called (usually gravely mistaken) issues with 'security'.

*It does matter who the 'sperm donor' is -- in fact, it may be the child's only hope of being at least a semi-'normal' person in life if the 'egg donor' is screwed up worse than a football bat.

*Therapy is usually a waste of time, unless you put that person in a category of 'acquaintance' (that you rarely see) -- which will negate the need for therapy since the poison is not in your air.

*So-called adults, especially mothers in her age range, rarely know anything worth hearing about sex. (She asked me, when I was in my 30's making her in her 50's) what a 'blow job' was.)

*She had sex with someone at least three (3) times; she has three (3) children.

*Say what you mean; mean what you say. Sure, it's going to hurt someone's feelings (supposedly), but in cases like a so-called mother (a.k.a. egg donor) it will cut down your stress level. It;s probably not going to ever actually change the situation, but at least she will possibly understand that she is the cause of how you feel.

*Mother's Day gifts are still mandatory; otherwise, she will use the no gift event as a reason to come around you and bitch more. She will bitch regardless, but that's why you bought an answering machine or got voice mail. However, since she will bitch a little, regardless, remember back to all the times she mentioned what she didn't like; gives you a wide range of things to pick from that she will hate (and will cut down on shopping time).

*Some people serve as an example -- of what NOT, NEVER to do in life.
Make sure, each and every day, that if you have kids you do NOT raise them like your egg donor raised you. Some things are environmental, but some things are genetic -- make sure you over-ride anything with your kids that you saw/see in your egg donor's raising (if you can call it that) of you.

*Remember that you are an adult now; that doesn't mean you always have to take the 'high road', though -- some things (and people) shouldn't ever have been allowed to breed. But they did, so move onward and upward with your life; because it is YOUR life, regardless of who brought you into this world....

That wasn't my mother's advice -- it's things she did that I make sure that I did not, do not, nor ever will do in my life (that she did); thankfully, I have my Daddy's genetics and outlook on life or I'd be screwed up worse than a football bat. I suppose there are lessons in everything; on the other hand, it's not like I 'miss' having a normal, loving mother (because I don't know the difference, never having had one). I'm pretty adaptable and empathetic at least.
