There was a blind girl who hated herself because she was blind.
She hated everyone, except, perhaps, her boyfriend.
Yet he was always there for her.
She told him:
"If I could only see, I would marry you."
One day, someone donated their eyes to her.
When the bandages came off, she was able to see everything.
Including her boyfriend.
He asked her: "Now that you can see the world, will you marry me?"
The girl looked at her boyfriend and saw that he was blind.
The sight of his scarred eye-lids shocked her. She hadn’t expected that.
The thought of looking at them for the rest of her life was something she didn’t want.
She refused to marry him and left him.
Her boyfriend cried but respected her decision.
Days later he wrote a note to her wishng her well:
"And take good care of your new eyes, my dear, for before they were yours,
They were mine."
This is how Headmind often works when our situation improves.
It is ungrateful, forgetful, complaining, and blind.
Only a very few of us remember what life was like before
Only a very few of us remember those who stood by us in adversity
Only a very few of us give thanks for what we have.
Life Is a Gift.
Before you complain about your food – think of someone who has nothing to eat.
Before you complain about the place where you live – think of the homeless.
Before you complain about your partner – think of someone who lives alone.
Before you complain about your parents – think of the children who are in care.
Before you complain about traffic jams – think of those who have to walk.
Before you complain about your job – think of the unemployed, and those who cannot work.
And if life is too much for you – think of those who need you and love you.
