People Turn To This Online Community When They Need A Mother Figure, And It Delivers Every Single Time (96 Posts)

American adventurer Christopher McCandless, who the movie Into The Wild is based on, is attributed with the phrase "Happiness is only real when shared", and I guess the same can be said about a lot of other emotions, too. We humans are social creatures, and our lives are heavily dependent on the connections we form with one another. Out of those, arguably the most important one is with our mothers. However, not everyone has one.

Luckily, there is a subreddit called 'Mom For A Minute' to fill the void, even if ever so slightly. "We are Mother Geese to our loving Ducklings," the community introduces itself. "When you need understanding, congratulations, praise, or advice from a mother figure, but don't have one in real-life able or willing to provide that for you — we are here for you. We support you and love you unconditionally!" And they deliver every single time.

Over the years, we at Bored Panda have covered a lot of corners of the internet but this is one wholesome tearjerker. I know it can sound like a cliché, but sometimes knowing that there's a person who cares really is all that you need to get through the day.

#1 Mom, I Do Neighborhood Cleanups Each Week And Everybody Looks At Me Like A Fool. I’m Disabled And Alone. Please Tell Me I’m An Okay Person

My dear, I’m proud of you for cleaning up neighborhoods. It’s hard work and takes a big person to do that. You’re alright love.

And if you’re ever too alone, I’m here. Make sure you dress warm, that photo looks cold. (:

Dearest just because we are disabled doesn’t mean we aren’t capable of great things

#6 Mom, My Family And My Friends Made Fun The Platypus I Crocheted. No One Wants To Buy It Either. Should I Even Continue With Making These?

They're adorable, don't listen to negativity crocheting is quite a talent!!! Animal shelters to sometimes are looking for sweaters and toys for their littlest of survivours maybe reach out to a local shelter? Children's ward of your local hospital (Preemie's) need little friends to hold - hats to keep them warm - blankets to snuggle in? Keep doing what your doing xo

That is adorable and they don't know what they're missing. It looks like it would make a good stuffed buddy for a new born :)

Congrats! Make sure you drink lots of water and have some Tylenol or Advil on standby. You’re probably going to be feeling very achy tomorrow. That second dose is a real doozy. I’m speaking from experience having received my second dose of Moderna on Monday.
Everytime I see someone get vaccinnated it's a shot of dopamine I desperately need, so thank you for sharing and congratulations! I'm so so grateful that you are protecting yourself and that you will be safe, and so proud of you for doing your part to protect others. I hope your side effect aren't too bad but even if they are, it will be over soon and what a relief it is to know you'll be protected. I'm thrilled for you.

As your mother, I feel like you need a good talking to. You are letting the voices in your head tell you mean things. Stop it. Your drawing skills eclipse my drawing skills by several orders of magnitude. I do not want to hear you denigrate your ability or talk down about yourself ever again. You hear me, honey? You have worked hard to get to this level, and you need to acknowledge that to yourself. I personally am very proud of your ability and I tell all my friends what a great drawer you are. Now get out that drawing pad and keep drawing. Love you, (signed) Mom.

#57 Hey Mom, My Wife Is Getting Hit By Her Seasonal Depression Hard This Year. I Was Just Wondering If You Could Give Your Honest Opinion On Her Embroidery To Cheer Her Up A Bit

Oh Honey, Depression is hard. It is a bunch of lies that feel real and carry a heavy load. You are trudging through a storm and what you can’t see is that beyond the sand in your face and rain and wind and the darkness of the clouds is that sun sun is shining on the other side and will be there when you’re through this. Don’t let those clouds convince you that there is only darkness. It’s a lie to keep you stuck. One foot in front of the other and you will eventually find your way to the other side. Girl, you are an artist! I love the everything about the mushroom lady right down to the snail detail on her head. Please make more art and continue showing the world your awesome creativity and point of view. All these pieces are remarkable. You can see that you put a lot of effort into these. Don’t ever stop. I hope you are being as kind, gentle and compassionate with yourself as you would be with any of us. Take care sweetie. Love, Mom

You’ll never really get your nails done with out her, you are forged from her.

You have accomplished something so amazing and it's definitely worth celebrating! Good job honey. Sending you my love and a big celebratory hug (only if you like hugs, of course.)
Congrats! I'm proud of you! Gaining weight can be a big struggle and you did an amazing job! You look so healthy and you look really happy. :)

#66 Hey Mom, It's Been 16 Years Since I Lost You, But I Think I'm Ok Now. I Finally Could Understand The Real Reason Behind Your S*icide And Your Mental Health Issues At The Time. I Going To Make Sure Everyone Understands Why You Did What You Did And What You Were Going Through. Miss You :(


You sweet beautiful child, how much you look like her

May time continue to heal, introduce new and happy experiences and people, and her memory be bright as always.

Your strength and outlook is something I’m in admiration and awe of. Thank you for loving her, knowing she did indeed love you so. I pray life brings you beauty.

#67 My Mother Invoiced Me $116,000

Oh darling. You don't need to pay for maternal love. I saw some of that thread and it seems you have a lovely, supportive wife. That letter must have hurt you lots. Are you ok?

PS I'm really proud of you!

#69 Hi Mom. We're Engaged And Will Get Married Next Year. My Family Doesn't Support Us Out Of Religious Differences. It's Hard On Us Sometimes; Like Today. Mind If I Ask For A Few Words Of Encouragement?

Wow!! I’m so happy & excited for you kids! ❤️ In all relationships, just as RBG’s future MIL told her about marriage, “It helps to be a little deaf”

Enjoy your love. Enjoy your engagement & enjoy each other.

#73 Mom, I Wish You Could See How Much Progress I've Made As A Person. I Wish You Were Still Here. Maybe Dad Wouldn't Have Such A Problem With It, If You Were Able To Talk To Him. I Miss You And Love You!

#74 Mom I Did It! I Won A Scholarship, Im On My Way To Become A Welder!



Now, take your safety seriously. Never EVER use eye protection that has even the smallest scratch on it. If you live where it gets cold a Carhart jumper will help keep most of your body warm while allowing your arms to move if you have to work in the cold.

Welding is a great career.

#84 Mom, I Did It. I’m First Generation, Graduated Magna Cum Laude With A Bachelors Of Art Therapy And Community Arts Cert. I Won My Schools Faculty Award For Most Outstanding Achievements In The Art Therapy Department

Oh my gosh congratulations! What an amazing accomplishment—I'm so proud of you! And what an amazing and important field to be in! This world definitely needs more art and beauty in it, and it makes me so happy to think about all of the people you're going to be able to help with your talent, passion, and hard work. I hope you take some time to celebrate, even if it's just something small, because there's no doubt in my mind you earned it!

It sounds like college was tough, but this is just the first step into the rest of your life, and you'll find your people—I just know it. The nice part about studying something so specific and personal is that soon you're likely to be surrounded by a bunch of people with the same interests and passions as you as you start your career, and I know you'll make some amazing friends along the way. I can feel your shine from your photo, and this world is lucky to have you in it! We're all here cheering for you and rooting you on, and there's no doubt in my mind there are even more great things to come! Congratulations again—you deserve it!

#85 Mom, It’s Officially Your Birthday. This Isn’t How I Wanted To Celebrate You This Year. I Hope Heaven Is Throwing You A Kick Ass Party Today. I Miss You So Painfully Everyday. I Love You, Mommy Salami. Happy Birthday

I am so, so incredibly sorry. Words don’t work and nothing we say will soothe your soul like we want it to. She loved you immeasurably, that’s evident in both your faces and smiles. She is still with you, and I don’t just mean her earthly remains, either. She will always be with you; she is beautiful and you look so much like her. She wants you to be happy and find your way thru life with her happiness of spirit, and the unbounded love you have for each other. Talk to her, she is listening. Honor her. Be a kind and gentle person but stand up for what’s right. She was a strong woman, this I can tell as well—and she has imparted this into you whether you know it yet or not. Be well and Godspeed to you, sweetie. If you ever need to vent, cry, or just talk, please inbox me; (I’m a mom too of daughters about your age), so I truly understand. Peace and Love to you!...

From: A mom.

#88 Hey Mom. I Don't Remember You. You Realized You Were In Too Deep, And I'd Be Better Off With Another Family. You Were So Strong To Make That Choice For Us. I Still Have Bunny, Though. Maybe You'll See This, And You'll Recognize Us. I Don't Get Sappy Often, But Sometimes I Wish I Had More Answers

Oh baby. I am forever sorry. I wanted more for you and me but I didn’t have it to give. So I made the best decision for you. I couldn’t think about me. I had to think of you. And I love that you have your bunny. It makes my heart hurt with love.

I remember you every birthday. Every time the sky is blue and has big white fluffy clouds and smells right, I think of the day you were born. When I see people your age, I wonder what you’re doing. When other people talk of their children, you are in my heart. It hurts but that’s how I know I’m alive and that I love you. I wonder so many things. But one thing I do not wonder - that I made the choice that was best for you.

I am a birth mother. My son turned 30 in September. I haven’t seen him since he was 4 weeks old. I cried when I read your post. Because I’ve always wondered. But don’t think that your mother doesn’t still love you. Ryan lives in my heart. You live in hers. I believe that. I hope you do, too. All my love to you.
