Like mother like daughter is a saying for a reason.

There hits a time in most mother daughter relationships where the child ventures into mom's closet.


That time arrived for Friends alum Courteney Cox and her 14 year-old daughter Coco Arquette. Coco is Cox's chid with ex-husband David Arquette.

Mom shared a side-by-side comparison of herself from 1998 wearing a purple dress with embroidered flowers and velvet trim straps and Coco in the same dress 21 years later on her Instagram account.

Cox captioned the split image:

"I'm not one to hold onto things but this was a damn good purchase! 21 years later..."


The post drew some famous attention from her fellow artists including Coco's aunt, Rosanna Arquette.

Like a lot of famous Hollywood parents in the age of social media, Cox and Coco appear on Instagram together often.

Cox also loves trips down memory lane. She shared several blasts from the past on her Instagram.

Including a certain video... with a certain Boss...

Thanks for sharing your post Friends life with your fans Courteney and letting them enjoy the wonders of watching Coco grow up.

Coco's parents famously worked together on genre changing horror movie Scream, available here.

Some years ago, I had to advise a college friend to stop chasing the girl he was interested in at the time. She'd already turned him down. Explicitly. At least two or three times.

He wouldn't take no for an answer and didn't see anything wrong with his behavior.

Perhaps he'd seen too many movies where the guy eventually breaks through the girl's defenses and essentially coerces her into going out with him?

Parents make mistakes. We want to believe that parents are doing there very best to raise their kids, but sometimes they do more harm than good.

Research into childhood trauma didn't actually begin until the 1970s, so we don't have as much knowledge about our mental health as adults as we might like.

However, a study that followed 1,420 from 1992 to 2015 found conclusive results about childhood trauma:

"'It is a myth to believe that childhood trauma is a rare experience that only affects few,' the researchers say."
"Rather, their population sample suggests, 'it is a normative experience—it affects the majority of children at some point.'"
"A surprising 60 percent of those in the study were exposed to at least one trauma by age 16. Over 30 percent were exposed to multiple traumatic events."

Not all of the things our parents do that were not so helpful technically classify as trauma, but it definitely has an effect on us as we get older.

On the outside, so many professions and careers look glamorous, financially enticing, and fun.

Often we sit back in our own lives and wallow in our dead-end jobs with that "wish I could do that for a living mentality!"

But if you look a little closer or, much like Dorothy Gale in OZ, just wait for a Toto to push the curtain back, you'll see that a lot more is going on behind the scenes.

And the shenanigans we don't see, make all that fun... evaporate.

So many careers and high power industries are built on a foundation of lies, backstabbing, and stress. And not in that fun "Dynasty" way.

That quiet, dead-end gig may not be so bad after all.

Redditor MethodicallyDeep wanted hear all the tea about certain careers, by asking:

What is a secret in your industry that should be talked about?
