Therapist Thursday: "What's the best piece of advice you ever got from your Mom?”

Therapist Thursday: "What's the best piece of advice you ever got from your Mom?”

John L. Pantera

It's "Therapist Thursday", and we're paying homage to Mom.    

This week's question was “What’s the best piece of advice you ever got from your Mom?" I posed this question to my team yesterday, and received many different and some funny responses.  We'd love to hear from our clients on the timeless advice they've received from Mom throughout the years.

Here is what my team had to say:

1. Do not rush to grow up.

 ~ Ida

2. Education is the best investment.

 ~ Katerina

3. Don't make the same mistakes I made. Be creative! Make your own.

~ Abbi

4. The golden rule: treat others the way you would want to be treated.

~ Andrea

5. Back when I was a freshman in college, my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. I can say without a doubt that it was the hardest moment of my life -- my mom is my world. Despite the chaos and the chemo and the constant barrage of radiation and doctors visits, my mother stood firm. She told me, "Sam, life is an adventure and sometimes you just have to go along for the ride." I do and thankfully, 12 years later, she does too. 

~ Samantha

6. To be honest, it was simply her whiskey sour recipe. 

~ Jamie

Its a tie between "don't wear so much black" and her "take vacations by yourself"

Be yourself. Always be a leader not a follower

My mom taught me the value of structure and good manners. Always be kind to others

Always wear a safety helmet when riding your horse and never sleep with anyone unless you love them, they love you and you think you want a long term relationship. I have followed both these suggestions and it has stood me in good stead! No traumatic brain injuries, no STDs and a solid, happy l
ong term relationship!
