You may have been best friends with Rachel and Jackie since you were 10 years old, but while these two have your back, there's one person who's been there for you from the start, and that's mom. You two may not always see eye to eye, but that doesn't mean she's out to ruin your life. In fact, she wants to do the exact opposite. Here, seven ways mom is the ultimate BFF.

1. She’s always looking out for you.

Moms have an uncanny ability to sniff out trouble, so if she senses that the man you’re dating is bad news, she’s going to try to protect you any way she knows how. Yes, even if you’re already 32.

2. She knows exactly how to cheer you up.
After an epically bad day at work, you can count on mom to prepare all your favorite dishes or surprise you with a cute blouse she bought from Instagram.

3. You can tell her anything.
And she won’t judge you or leave you like other people would.

4. She’ll fight tooth and nail for you.
Did your boyfriend cheat on you? You can bet mom will be right there by your side, all the while texting your now ex-boyfriend never to darken your doorway again.

5. Did we say that she’ll always have your best interests at heart?
You may be in the middle of a cold war right now, but the minute you need her, she’s there. NO QUESTION.

6. She has the best advice.

"Always respect yourself. Magpa-importante ka!"

7. You don’t have to be anyone else around her.
She’s been with you ever since you were born. She understands why you fear heights, hate cats, and love cheesy Tagalog songs. You don’t have to pretend you don’t know the lyrics to "Pangako Sa’Yo."
