affection

Mom (and Dad for that matter) is an F, a Feeler, while I am a T, a Thinker. (Yes, I am talking about Myers Briggs...again.) I don't need a lot of physical affection or words of affirmation. In fact, often I would rather you not even bother with it. But that isn't very nice for the people that want and need to give it. 

I just walked through the kitchen, on the way to the table to paint my nails, where Mom was cooking and I put my arms around her and kissed her on the cheek. Was that so hard? I seem to think it is. She even mentioned a few minutes later how much she liked her kiss. How selfish am I, that I cannot take a moment to show my mother I love her?
