    BuzzFeed asked a bunch of people to anonymously write a "secret" to their mother. Their only instruction was to keep it short and truthful. Here are the responses:

    "My biggest regret in life is the way I treated you when I was a teenager."

    "As much as your accomplishments inspired me, I learned equally as much, if not more, from your failings, which have made me a stronger woman today."

    "I wish you knew how brilliant and gorgeous you are. It kills me that you still have so much self-doubt, and I feel so much anger toward the family members who ever made you feel ugly or unworthy."

    "I secretly want to be just like you when I grow up."

    "I've been flushing tampons for over a decade. I only found out a few days ago that I'm not supposed to."

    "I'm pregnant."

    "I never take the vitamins you give me. And yes, that is a sniffle you hear in my voice."

    "I feel sorry for all of my friends because they don't have you as a mother."

    "Getting high with you was a great bonding experience."

    "I'm not sure if you realize, but I've always admired you. I still look up to you and I'll always value your advice above anyone else's."

    "I hate that you retweet my brothers, but not me."

    "I don't love your cooking, but I love you :)"

    "OK, I did eat that Hershey's kiss. I'm sorry."

    "I've always considered you a good parent, but now that I'm an adult, I can only hope I do as good of a job as you did with me."

    "I'm glad I'm like you."

    "I'm sorry I'm not who we thought I was going to be."

    "Sometimes you drive me crazy, but I know I'm really lucky to have you as my mom."

    "I wish you were still around so you could tell me if you're proud of where I am today."

    "Thank you for believing in me, even when you knew better."

    "I wish I was better at saying good-bye to you every time I leave."

    "Because of you, I survived."

    "I love you and I miss you."
