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 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 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."
