words that sting

Yesterday he told me he doesn't love me.  And even from a 3-year-old, it stung.  I was surprised how it stung.  "I don't like you."  "You're not beautiful."  "You're not nice."  These I have heard a lot.  But not loving me was new. 

How do you not take it personally, moms?  How do you just let it roll off your back like it didn't pang your heart?

I don't really know yet.  I feel like we should be able to.  Or maybe I just hope I'll be able to.  Because I fear that with him, I may still be hearing these types of things when he's sixteen.
