Friends are the only reason why we survived our troubled teens and our rocky 20s'. They've seen us through our heartbreaks and failures, and not abandoned us during some stupid weird phases we went through. What's more, they have even joined us in those weird phases, and boy, did we look stupid together! But we didn't care we've had our so-called swagger on.
We've fought many times, haven't spoken for days, moved in different directions, but at the end of the day, we've managed to stick together. Our differing personalities is one of the reasons that make hanging out with each other so much fun!
There's this particular friend that everyone must have, the mommy type. You know that because of this friend you have survived a number of situations, you can let yourself go because there's this person worrying for you.

If you can't recognize these qualities in a friend, that may be because you are the mommy of your group. Here are some signs to prove it.

Your purse contains everything.

Your purse has literally everything that anyone would need. You like to keep things in your bag just in case someone needs something. From granola bars to sweaters, you've got it all. If you're ever stranded on a deserted island, your purse is going to save them all.

You're the designated driver at every party.

You're not the one to get carried away and have one too many drinks. You have the will of steel and can resist temptations come what may. Everyone knows there could be no one but you behind the wheels and you really don't mind it.

You always make emotional speeches.

You remember the time when your highly disorganized incapable-of-doing-almost-anything-without-you friends actually managed to surprise you with a birthday party?

You always have food on you.

You make sure that everyone's hunger is well catered for! If they're hungry, they come to you for some munchies. Basically, you're like their personal vending machine.

Once in a while you're termed as the buzzkill.

Your friends are carefree always into some crazy stuff or the other. You're the one who has to take care of things when they're too drunk or hurt. In school, you were always reminding them to do their homework, now you're keeping tabs on how drunk they get or something like that. So one in a millionth time, you're called a buzzkill.

You know your friends are lost without you.

Without you around to tell them, your friends may be lying in some ditch or might have landed up in jail. It is your cautious ways that prevent them from texting while driving, or playing a game of arrow roulette. The day you decide to let your hair down and party hard, they get a bit nervous.

Parents love you.

Yes they do! Be it your parents, your friend's parents, your partner's parents, or their partners' parents, they all love you. The friendly homeless guy who gives soup, even his parents love you. They know their kids are going to be fine as long as you're around.

According to your friends, you're a superwoman/superman.

Yes, you can do almost anything, while your friends just stand and watch you in awe. From stitching a tear to changing the tire, you've got everything under control.

"Be safe" and "Text once you get home" are your parting words.

You want to make sure that everyone's alright. You worry whether each of your bud has reached home safe or not. The last thing you say to your friend before leaving is to go home safely and let you know unless they want a rescue team to come looking for them.

You take care of everyone.

Getting them soup, keeping them company, taking them to the doc, or getting them their homework when you were in school.

Make sure that your buddies are well taken care of.

Your friends call you mommy every now and then.

You love them and they love you. They're definitely lost without you, and you know that. You cater to their needs and take care of them without really minding it. Once in a while, either of your friend calls you mommy, and you don't mind it.
