Rosa Mamá Is The Internet Mom We All Needed And Wanted For Laughs And Comfort During These Crazy Times

Mothers are always ready with advice and love when you need it most. Some times the best advice might even come for your friend’s mother, or a mother you see on the internet. There’s no doubt that Rosa Mamá has given us the laughs and advice we have needed and wanted. Whether she is reviewing the latest movies or bringing us peace after DACA was rescinded, she is one of the greatest mothers on the internet. Here are just nine of her greatest moments.

1. Rosa Mamá proved that Latina moms all walk around with Mary Poppins purses.

It is a fact that the food and drinks at the movie theater is just too expensive. It’s a good thing that our parents taught us how to bring all of our favorite snacks into the movies without being caught.

2. She made us laugh when she learned the lyrics to “Bodak Yellow.”

I wish my mom danced to “Bodak Yellow”.

Posted by We are mitú on Wednesday, September 13, 2017

Legit, we all thought about our own mom’s learning the words to “Bodak Yellow” and all collectively cringed. Like, it’s a good thing that they know the artist, but do they need to start singing it around us?

3. And she was even more shook when she learned the words to “Despacito.”

Do you know what the lyrics to Despacito really are about?

Posted by We are mitú on Wednesday, July 5, 2017

This is why Latino parents don’t let their children listen to reggaeton. The lyrics tend to be overly sexual and would make any mother blush so there is no wonder moms don’t want us listening to it.

4. Who can forget her funny af voicemails?

Nothing sends our mothers into a full freakout like us not answering the phone. It doesn’t matter if you are sleeping, in the shower, or in the middle of retiling your house, mom expects you to answer. Mama Rosa proved that she is just like every other Latina mother with her immense concern for her own son.

5. She has tackled some major topics as well, like mental health in the Latino community.

Latinos can’t talk about mental health without calling you “cr…

Latinos can’t talk about mental health without calling you “crazy”! Why?

Rosa Mamá admitted that her own children have had to go to therapy and she was confused why at first. However, like most mothers, understands that some times you just need help and there are professionals out there to do that. There is no shame in getting the help that you need.

6. Rosa Mamá even gave us some insight into what some of those mom sayings really mean.

Mexican moms have sooo many sayings, but what do they mean? #GrowingUpMexican

Thanks to Rosa Mamá, we now know what “Te salío más caro el clado que las albóndigas.” (The cure was worse than the disease.) This truly is a look into the minds of our mothers that we have never had before. Gracias, Mama Rosa.

7. Her commentary on different movies, like “Baywatch” will remind you of your own mom.

See this Mexican mom REACT to Baywatch with Zac Efron and The Rock.

Legit, this is probably what every mom thought when they saw the remake of the classic show.

8. She’s been dropping some solid relationship advice too.

This mom’s advice on how to get out of the friend zone is savage af. ????

Now that’s what you call savage advice. “Kick them to the curb.” That is probably the greatest advice anyone could ever get about getting out of the friend zone.

9. And, when things get scary, Rosa Mamá, like all of our moms, will be here to make sure you know that everything will be okay.

How many times have you heard your mom say this? It is never when you need to find something because dad never knows where to find stuff. That is just a cold hard fact about life in a Latino household. This was always posed to you when you asked mom to go to a sleepover or anything that required approval.

This will not only make your mom laugh, but dad will chuckle as well. After all, he knows that his word is only as good as his vieja will let it be. Lol.

Maybe it is just a quick laugh but we all know that she will wear it to manifest her nietos.

Reddit Users Are Sharing Advice On How To Get Over Your Fear Of Being Hurt By A New Partner

Reddit Users Are Sharing Advice On How To Get Over Your Fear Of Being Hurt By A New Partner

Heartache often proves to be a heck of a mountain to get over.

Isolating, physically and emotionally draining, and ultimately desperate, the feeling of having your heart split into can be a traumatizing one that can bleed into future relationships. No matter how healthy or new, the relationships we get into after heartbreaks can be difficult to navigate, and often times feel like a minefield of potential problems.

Users on Reddit know this truth and are doing their best to help us all get over our dating fears.

Check out some helpful insights below!

“By healthily distancing myself and having more to focus on in my life than a current relationship. I find that I have more trouble with these feelings when I’m lacking outside hobbies and friends. It’s easy to constantly worry about a new relationship when it’s the center of your world, and giving yourself space outside the relationship can also really help if you’re prone to being codependent on partners/spouses.”- SwirlyButterfly

“After certain number of heartbreaks, you start to realize you’ve always survived and you’ll survive if it happens again. Having a full life apart from the relationship is a big part of that.”- 1VulgarWoman

“When I started going on out the weekends with friends, it helped soooo much. I noticed when I was getting depressed I wasn’t going out at all. Giving myself the space allowed the relationship to flow perfectly.”- itristain

“By going slow. When my now fiance asked me out I was five months removed from being raped by two guys at a house party and was still really shaken up about it. I didn’t trust men, I didn’t crave sex or intimacy, I was anxious and hurt. But against my gut I agreed to go on the date and was delighted to find he was sweet and respected my wishes. After we’d been seeing each other for about three months I told him that I’d been assaulted and he was always there for emotional support. We’re getting married in August, our sex life is great and I’m infatuated with him. It just took time.”- Mineralista406

“I know that moving forward after a bad relationship I will never ignore red flags and chose partners with morals and goals similar to mine. Do not ignore red flags because you’re lonely. It’s not worth it.”- Melyjane312

“It’s hard because it took me a long time and a lot of conversations to feel secure and that i was finally with someone who wasn’t going to hurt me. And he said all of those right things with no doubts, no red flags etc. However sure enough one day- heart broken. So I don’t know how i will ever do it again.”- icecream112233

“Depends if you are with them, or want one right away.

For me, distance, u dont need someone else to be complete, put those standards high. If you want a loving gentle yet strong and dependable partner, manifest him.”- Koroklass

“I think it might be helpful to adopt a mindset where you realize people aren’t really going to change for you (unless you have a really special bond or something and you’re in a really deeply committed relationship where your partner is willing to compromise etc.) and that whatever they do is a reflection of who they are as a person and not who you are. Yeah you can communicate and if they choose to listen then great, If not well there’s almost always a choice on whether to stay or not. Sometimes it’s not that people want to hurt you it’s just that they simply don’t know better or they have some character “flaw” that speaks more about them. Or that due to timing or the nature of things it can’t work right now, or some people aren’t built for relationships, and that relationships can be vastly different with different people. No one is perfect and we can only do our best. And like what other people are saying, shift that focus onto yourself and work on being a good person living a happy and healthy life doing things that you love will help!”- imightforgetthis11

“Aww man… it took over a year. I’ve been with my boyfriend for a year and some months. I used to have bad anxiety. I never been in a healthy relationship. This feeling was sooo new to me. I felt so uneasy and still wouldn’t and couldn’t trust him. I prayed ALOT. And It was proven that I could trust him and just relax but I still couldn’t. I tried 3 therapist that didn’t help. I just wasted money. What helped me was reading books and going out with my friends. I am currently reading 4 books and reading them has helped my issues. It’s therapy for me. I read books about relationships and men and women. I learned more about myself. I got a relationship/life coach by researching the book and found that there are people who will coach you. She told me I get anxiety because I’m going against my feminine ways. I was trying to control my bf for no reason, nag him and etc. I stopped doing that and became relaxed. I focused on becoming a better person. I read books on being feminine in a relationship and I tried it. I started being more happy and just letting go. I stopped worrying and it feels great. I don’t think he will hurt me. I don’t have those thoughts anymore. I don’t think he’ll cheat either. He adores me so much and I get reminded of that every single day. I just sat back and did nothing and focused on ME. You have to fix yourself before you get into a relationship or else marriage will unravel it all and it could go bad. When I prayed I already had confirmation. I downloaded scripture apps and got more into prayer. If you’re religious then trusting God will help you trust yourself

I also learned that thinking negative has ALOT to do with it. I learned to only think positive and I’m normally happy the whole entire day. I just changed my life around. My coach also said when I change, my partner changes. He was always loving to me, but now he seems to have falling deeper.”- itristain

“Books have also been a huge help in my healing journey and figuring out how not only my partners, but I was hurting and sabotaging my relationships.”-Sea-Delay

“I am and always have been laid back, loving and trusting in my relationships. But they have always ended in the the guy treating me bad eventually (I have broken up with them pretty quick after such treatment). But now I always have a feeling they will betray me no matter how loving our relationship is, like they are always just pretending to be loving and will eventually be horrible to me and it makes me feel really sad.”- callmedeniro

“Time and taking things slowly in the beginning. Took me a while to get there but I worked through those feelings and got there eventually.”- kinkyspidersex

“My fiance came home from work and instead of helping my friend move that was standing right outside, he told me he actually didn’t love and dint want to be in this life with me anymore. So that was rough. I dont think… I have gotten over that fear? I still think about how my current, long term partner of almost 3 years might do that. And there’s not much I can do about it? It wasn’t my fault the first time, shit just happens, he might fall out of love with me this time too. I just remember those fears are mine,and not rational, and thats not fair to put on my current partner to make me feel better about.”- seeemilydostuf

“It all came down to the right man. He could have other women but he wants me. He doesn’t have to be with someone to be happy but he chooses to be with me. He never tells me something he doesn’t think is true. In light of all that I just can’t really imagine him hurting me or lying to me about how he feels… he’s just had so many opportunities to do something else and he hasn’t.”- phasestep

“Day by day, by being vulnerable with my new partner and most of the time he doesn’t let me down.”- StrongEye1738
