cont. Stories to live by

(Happiness and sadness run parallel to each other. One of life's mysteries.)

Once there was a blind girl who hated herself because she was blind. She hated everyone, except her boyfriend. He was always there for her. One day she told him, "If I could see the world, I will marry you." One day, someone donated a pair of 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 closed eyelids shocked her. She hadn't expected that. The thought of looking at him like this for the rest of her life led her to refuse to marry him. Her boyfriend left in tears and days later wrote her a note saying: "Take good care of your eyes, my dear; for before they were yours, they were mine." Only a few remember what life was like before, and who was always by their side in the most painful situations. The human brain often differs in thought when our status changes.
