"I babysat this six year old, and I was wearing shorts today and my scars were showing, I guess. He poked them and he said, “I know how those got there.” I replied, “How?” He looked at me with a straight face and he said, ‘I’ve seen them before. My big sister had them, and she said mean people put them on your body when they weren’t nice to you, because when people are mean to you, you end up being mean to yourself. My big sister went away. I don’t know where she went. Mommy said she’s on a happy vacation somewhere, because she was too sad here. I miss her. Don’t go on a vacation, please.’”
I read this today… And immeadiately broke down. Little kids don’t even understand how powerful their words can be.
