When I'm down or upset about something, my mother is always there to pick me up. She always knows what to say to make everything better. She is the type of person that always thinks, "The glass is half full, not half empty." When I'm dealing with a tough situation, whether my opinion is right or wrong, she always stands by me. On the other hand, there are times she is forced to show me a little "tough love." I understand that a mother sometimes has to do this so that it teaches the child life lessons. Regardless, her love is completely unconditional.
