Mother's Day 2018: What's the best piece of advice your mum ever gave you?


Whether it’s how to handle heartbreak, financial savviness or just general life hacks, our mums know best. Those of us fortunate to have mums are pretty lucky to have such wisdom imparted on us. 




Who better than the woman who birthed and raised you to advise you how to live your best life? So, it being Mother’s Day, we asked a number of Metro.co.uk staffers and members of the public for the best pearls of wisdom their mums have imparted…even if they weren’t really listening at the time:

Mother's Day 2018: What's the best piece of advice your mum ever gave you?

Work

 ‘My mum always used to tell me to keep things in perspective. If I was getting stressed out or anxious about work/studies she would say “this a tiny moment in the whole of your life”.




 It helped to calm me down and remains on my mind during times of stress today,’ Zoe ‘My mum told me that you can get out of anything if you REALLY don’t want to do it, you don’t have to do anything. except when you’re in labour – that’s the only time when you actually have to push. 

‘Any time I’ve been really freaked out, she’s always said if you if you really don’t want to do it, there’s nothing stoping you from pulling out. 

You don’t HAVE to do that exam, go to work, go for that job interview, meet that person. Nothing in life is compulsory,’ Miranda   

Finance 

‘The other great piece of advice that her mum gave her and she gave me is the old classic “not a lender nor a borrower be”. ‘Give without counting the cost and you’ll never be disappointed, don’t offer if you can’t afford to never see it again,’ Miranda. 
You can freeze bread. 
‘That changed my life,’ Coral. Well, freezing bread does save money, so it’s pretty economical advice. 



  Health 

‘One of my mum’s most consistent pieces of advice has been “nothing’s more important than your health”. I used to roll my eyes considerably at this, especially as a teenager.

Even when I was diagnosed in my early 20s and having bipolar disorder I tried to forget about my condition, just take the pills and work myself silly. But now I’m in my 30s I understand the wisdom of her words. If I’m not healthy I can’t be sane let alone live an enjoyable, balanced life,’ Yvette.  

 Dating 

‘Find a man who supports Arsenal because he has demonstrated his loyalty years before he even met you. I haven’t followed this advice and maybe that explains why I’m still single,’ Tobi.

 Other useful nuggets of advice 

‘Never leave the house without good underwear because you never know what can happen. I thought it was an old-fashioned maybe even sexist piece of advice. 

Well … two weeks ago I was rushed out of work into A&E and let’s just say I wished I listened to my mother that morning when I got dressed,’ anon.



‘Don’t shave the top of your legs. Despite unfortunately having to shave lower legs (and other areas) I have never needed to shave the top of my legs because never doing so in the first has meant the blonde hair has stayed blonde. 

‘Don’t let anyone else decide or tell you what you can and can’t do. ‘Spend a little more on classic and good quality clothes and they will last you a lifetime. I now own a lot of my mum’s old clothes as well as my own hoard’




 ‘Adults can be bitches too,’ Natasha. 

‘You should pity stupid people but bear them no mind. You will never fail if you value intelligence and treat others as you wish to be treated,’ Paul. Thank God for mums.
