Tonight I was cuddling my MK at bedtime. She goes, "Mommy, I need to whisper something to you in your ear". So I told her go head. What she said made me SO sad for her, but SO happy she "gets" it.
"Mommy I have this difficult voice inside of me. The voice says, MK you're a bad kid. You don't deserve to be loved by anyone. You are just a big joke. But I am telling that voice with my brain, that it is wrong and I am stronger than it so I am just going to push that voice out of my body because it doesn't make me happy".
I am hopeful that she will eventually push that voice out of her. I explained to her for the first time tonight that she isn't the only kid that feels that way and has that voice. That I know she is strong enough to stand up for herself.
I love those little moments where she "lets me in" to her mind.
