Every once in a while, we all have those days when the world feels much heavier than it usually does. Days when nothing feels right, and instead of dealing with your daily responsibilities, all you'd like to do is stay in bed and not talk to anyone. For at least a few years.
Though sometimes, without you even realizing it, all it takes for you to get out of this mess might be a few kind words. A simple and kind "How are you doing today?" has the potential to change a person's whole day, and if that's not magic, then I don't know what is.
I'm sure that these 30 teachers know this feeling quite well. Recently, a Twitter user Cova_Gab shared a wholesome message that was sent to her by her student. "Are you okay? What did you eat for breakfast?" reads the message. Turns out, she gets texts like this from the student almost every day.

Someone replied to the original post by saying this: "This 2nd grader needs to teach a connection and empathy course at my school." "Kids are really like little best friends. My students can always make my day no matter how rough the week may have been," another user added.
On the other hand, there were people who found messages like that quite concerning. "This is super sweet, but also makes me wonder if the child is experiencing extreme stress due to Covid and quarantine. Maybe just check in to make sure is ok at home?" someone wrote. "Just food for thought as I do not know the details—Kids with trauma often with ask others the questions they need to be asked. They parent trusted adults in their lives in hopes of being parented in return," another user added.
Some other users shared instances that are quite different from the previous ones. "I work with 1st-3rd graders and the best I get is a good morning from 2 of them," someone wrote. "My students locked me out of the building and asked me what WAP means," another user said. "Must be nice.... my middle school students ask me what strip clubs I've been to," someone added.
