I thought I would share a story that I came across this week whilst I was writing some content. It was about change and how our thoughts change when our circumstances change.
There was girl who had no sight in her eyes and she hated herself for having that affliction. The only person that she didn’t hate was her loving boyfriend, because he was always there for her. She said that if she could see the World, she would marry him.
One day, someone donated a pair of eyes to her, out of the blue. Now she would get the opportunity to see everything, including her boyfriend.
Her boyfriend then said, “Now that you can see the World, will you marry me?”
The girl, no longer blind, was shocked when she saw that her boyfriend was blind too, and she refused to marry him.
Her boyfriend was crushed and walked away in tears. Later, he wrote a note to her that said simply,…
“Just take care of my eyes”.
The moral to this story?
When our circumstances change, so does our mind. Some people may be unable to see the way that things were before and might not be able to appreciate them.
There are many things to take away from this story. What is your take away?
