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:

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

4. “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.”

5. “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.”

6. “I secretly want to be just like you when I grow up.”

8. “I’ve been flushing tampons for over a decade. I only found out a few days ago that I’m not supposed to.”

9. “I’m pregnant.”

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

11. “I feel sorry for all of my friends because they don’t have you as a mother.”

12. “Getting high with you was a great bonding experience.”

14. “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.”

15. “I hate that you retweet my brothers, but not me.”

16. “I don’t love your cooking, but I love you :)”

17. “OK, I did eat that Hershey’s kiss. I’m sorry.”

19. “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.”

20. “I’m glad I’m like you.”

21. “I’m sorry I’m not who we thought I was going to be.”

22. “Sometimes you drive me crazy, but I know I’m really lucky to have you as my mom.”

23. “I wish you were still around so you could tell me if you’re proud of where I am today.”

25. “Thank you for believing in me, even when you knew better.”

26. “I wish I was better at saying good-bye to you every time I leave.”

27. “Because of you, I survived.”

28. “I love you and I miss you.”
