Beautiful, Love, and Parents: She Was Ashamed of Wearing A Swimsuit Due To The Stretch Marks On Her Thighs. But Never Knew Her Sister Would Say This The summer before I started middle school, I gained a lot of weight and had unsightly stretch marks on my thighs. I was ashamed. While my parents worked during the day, my older sister took me to the neighborhood pool. I braced myself when I walked out of the changing stall. My sister never said one word about my body. She only said, "I love your bathing suit!" I remember like it was yesterday. It meant everything that she managed to think of one nice thing when she could have said something cruel or nothing at all In the days that followed, other people were not so kind. But the pain was eased by remembering what my sister said. She'd said one nice thing, and her opinion mattered more than all the others. Although my sister was very smart, had long, beautiful hair, and good conversation skills, I realized that anyone could be that person-the person who thinks of one nice thing when no one else does. From that moment, I set a secret goal to be the person who thought of one nice thing - especially when I noticed someone looking uncomfortable, insecure, or left out. Those people were easy to spot. They always looked a little sad or a little angry. But saying one nice thing almost always brought a look of relief. Sometimes it started a conversation; other times it didn't, but I always loved seeing that tiny flash of relief on that pained face. <p>Girl Is Ashamed Of Wearing A Swimsuit Due To The Stretch Marks On Her Thighs.
