The story of a blind girl

There was a blind girl who hated herself just because she was blind. She hated everyone, except her loving boyfriend. He was always there for her. She said that if she could only see the world, she would marry her boyfriend.

One day, someone donated a pair of eyes to her and then she could see everything, including her boyfriend. Her boyfriend asked her, “Now that you can see the world, will you marry me?”

The girl was shocked when she saw that her boyfriend was blind too, and refused to marry him. Her boyfriend walked away in tears, and later wrote a letter to her saying: “Just take care of my eyes dear.”


This is how human brain changes when the status changed. Only few remember what life was before, and who’s always been there even in the most painful situations.

Life Is A Gift

Today before you think of saying an unkind word–
think of someone who can’t speak.

Before you complain about the taste of your food–
think of someone who has nothing to eat.

Before you complain about your husband or wife–
think of someone who is crying out to God for a companion.

Today before you complain about life–
think of someone who went too early to heaven.

Before you complain about your children–
think of someone who desires children but they’re barren.

Before you argue about your dirty house, someone didn’t clean or sweep–
think of the people who are living in the streets.

Before whining about the distance you drive–
think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet.

And when you are tired and complain about your job–
think of the unemployed, the disabled and those who wished they had your job.

But before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another–
remember that not one of us are without sin and we all answer to one maker.

And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down–
put a smile on your face and thank God you’re alive and still around.

Life is a gift – Live it, Enjoy it, Celebrate it, and Fulfill it.

    This is such a meaningful story… The girl was so stupid and foolish not knowing that once upon a time she was blind and was loved and cared by a loving and loyal guy who was ready to sacrifice anything for her… and now after she had the ability to see, she forget the love that her bf had showered on her!!!

    As a girl myself, I think that this girl should be punished and rejected. The guy in the story is just who I am looking for, a guy who does not care about how you look but care about how much the girl loves him. He knew that the girl loved him so he stayed loyal to her and asked her to marry him after she could see… but she idiotically rejected. He should have told her his intentions before donating his eyes to her.

    By the way, a very touching story that made me cry!!!

    Love is nothing but sex. If you don’t agree, if you say that it is false, then keep your hands on your heart and ask yourself, have you slept with your bf/gf? But one thing, don’t love a girl or a boy for sex but love to keep them happy and content.

  • Prasiddha Bhaskaran January 19, 2011, 9:37 am

    The girl is so unfortunate.

  • Biplab January 16, 2011, 6:53 am

    The story is short but has high morality in it.

  • Dey January 16, 2011, 6:51 am

  • Romnil January 13, 2011, 5:45 am

    Well, actually, Eric just mean that, how can he cry “WITHOUT” eyes?
    Anyways, the story is so touching ..

  • Dont fall 4 me January 13, 2011, 3:05 am

    If I were she I’ll marry him cus he sacrificed dat.

  • Trupti Ranjit Jain January 10, 2011, 5:03 am

    It’s a really very nice story. Why the boyfriend did’t tell her that he donated his eyes.

  • Jonard January 6, 2011, 10:43 am

    I wish I will be in love the way the boy did….

  • ParanormalCookie January 2, 2011, 8:53 pm

    I don’t know what to say to this.. Makes me cry :’/
    I understand the girls point of view..
    But the boy.. He gave up what he had and she didn’t
    Just for her love.

  • Sapan Raghuwanshi January 2, 2011, 11:06 am

    This is a very true & realistic story….. I think such incidents..somewhat we all have experienced…. but can anyone tell the solution of such human nature…..

  • Nihal mahanto January 2, 2011, 6:50 am

    This is a nice story and whatsoever is written is very understable and the morals should be adapted by people… thanks to writter who wrote this story and for the valueable morals.

  • Nihal mahanto January 2, 2011, 1:29 am

    This is very good story.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson said it best “Though we travel the world over to find the bueutiful, we must carry it with us or we fihd it not.”

  • Kenta December 28, 2010, 9:57 am

  • Baxw6 December 26, 2010, 1:13 pm

    I think It’s a weird story because the boy could donate her, one of his eyes then both could see

  • Kamo December 12, 2010, 3:17 am

  • Sarah December 11, 2010, 10:01 am

  • Ghanashyam December 10, 2010, 1:52 am

    I liked the way you all are responding to this story, this is what we need to know the views of each individual, thanks to all…
    and about the story, I also liked it sooo much and just want to say this: When you love someone truly, you’ll not think any more u just want to give to the extreme to make ur love Happy….so the boy does….but got just opposite……

    So I just want to say u all …that don’t expect any thing from any one and give everything…..may be one day they’ll realise that…..

  • Ashok December 9, 2010, 7:55 am

    That is a reality one with all the girls.

  • Kapil December 5, 2010, 12:35 am

    Love is not blind but people are blind who can’t see love.

  • Nyaah November 30, 2010, 7:42 pm

    I’m sure that nobody sits here and reads all of these posts, and I’m guilty of it too, I read the first 5 or 6, then went to write my own and read the last, but I hope that someday, someone will read this, and hear my words that this is a great story, and it wasn’t the story at the top that touched me the most, it was the things underneath it that hit me the hardest…

    Today before you think of saying an unkind word – Think of someone who can’t speak.

    The first line of the underneath passage brought me to tears, because I realized how true it was, and I know, because my very own sister cannot talk, she has nothing wrong with her, but damaged vocal cords, and she is quite the person you would do anything to be with, and with the simple fact that she cannot talk, but I sit here and say mean things, and laugh, and complain about alot, but she can do nothing at all with her voice…

  • Mark Allan November 27, 2010, 10:07 am

    The story is good. People just tend to forget what it is like to get to have what we have right now. It’s just so sad to think of that but, I still believe in what we, people can do for better.

  • Mash21 November 24, 2010, 6:11 am

    I love it.. I feel sorry for the boy .. maybe the girl now realize that she owe her eyes ..

  • Rajmohan November 21, 2010, 12:22 am

    Oh, What a touching story, Imagine, Now Jesus says to all of us MY DEAR SON AND MY DEAR DAUGHTER ‘TAKE CARE OF MY LIFE’ (BECAUSE HE GAVE HIS LIFE FOR OUR SINS)

  • ANGEL November 10, 2010, 2:29 pm

  • alex boxer November 10, 2010, 1:12 am

    omg that’s soo sad, what a pour man, a girl like that shouldn’t be trusted, the guy was a nice guy he shouldn’t be with a girl like that πŸ™ πŸ™ …….

  • Rahul November 9, 2010, 4:39 am

    I personally feel that each and every person has their own thinking & feeling as all the fingers are not equal so please do not hurt anyone’s feelings & take things positively

  • Aaron Issac November 1, 2010, 2:01 am

    Very inspiring and touching story. Sometimes we forget our past and ungrateful to others who help us.

  • Mary October 26, 2010, 4:33 am

    It’s so sweet of that guy.. :'( πŸ™

  • Jaspreet October 26, 2010, 12:23 am

Few days back my boyfriend broke up with me due to some problems and he wants to marry with a girl who lives in canada and obviously she is much more richer than me may be thats why but still i really love him and wants that he will be happy forever even with that girl also but i love him forever!!!

  • Lauren October 13, 2010, 3:14 pm

    It’s quite selfish because she wanted to marry her boyfriend but found out he was blind. She wouldn’t like it.

  • Nupur Chugh October 13, 2010, 7:59 am

    Really wonderful story, it shows boy loved girl heartly.

  • Anish Sony October 7, 2010, 11:27 am

    Really, very insuperable story. Its sad story but it also shows that some people love/like us because we help them in many ways. Its my request to those people who are selfish that in their life they never ever cheat anyone.

  • Bhevs October 7, 2010, 8:03 am

    Aaw. How sad πŸ™

  • Salman September 25, 2010, 10:40 am

    It’s realy touching. He has proved his love….

  • Ice skater September 23, 2010, 1:46 pm

    its not sad story instead if people forget your kindness move on, dont grumble instead see next 1 who needs it,
    telling frm my experience, its difficuilt but worth it.try it

  • Pakman September 23, 2010, 8:12 am

    Very touching story, everyone here really fights alot but instead of being so negative just look at the story, learn from it and apply it to your life. Usually its the simple stories like this one that teach us simple but extremely powerful lessons, if we only allow ourselves to learn. So cherish your loved ones, thank the good lord for everything we are blessed with and be grateful for the people that love us and make sacrifices for us that we know about, and dont know about…..but thats just me though πŸ™‚

  • Sarah September 20, 2010, 10:01 pm

    Awwee! Poor guy :d

    That girl is mean !!!

    This was a really sad and good story! πŸ˜€

  • Nazariy from Ukraine September 15, 2010, 2:09 pm

    Unfortunately, in this world many people are hard-hearted. But I think that good-hearted people much more.

  • Ravi Bhatia September 10, 2010, 7:49 am

    Our heart always recommends to sacrifice, but our mind should always remain sensitive to recommend who deserves it

  • Vijay_iiit September 6, 2010, 3:15 am

    Wow

    It’s really heart touching n inspiring.

  • Siddiqui September 4, 2010, 5:12 am

    It’s really touching, only those with that disability can feel the pain and suffering.

  • Yuvraj September 3, 2010, 2:04 pm

    This is a very nice story. Wowww!

  • Kriti September 2, 2010, 7:19 am

    Wow !

    That’s a great story, a really wonderful story. My mouth was wide open when I read it, really emotional.

  • Anmol August 30, 2010, 8:52 am

    Very sad story.

  • Simran August 29, 2010, 7:13 am

    This story is really a heart touching story. Girl should take care of boy’s feeling, love & emotions

  • Nice story August 28, 2010, 9:30 am

    It’s a moral story about humans… we are capable of such incredible cruelty,evil etc.(represented by the girl) and also capable of great love,compassion etc.(represented by the boy). it can have many “translations”, but in the end it`s about our human nature…

  • Nuzhat August 28, 2010, 4:12 am

    The story teaches us never to come to conclusions in haste ans to show understanding and compassion during others difficult times. Moreover one must never forget the past…Good story and perfect end as it helped us learn from it.

  • Henry August 25, 2010, 5:38 am

    Our teacher has just given this story in our periodical test.

  • Dippi August 17, 2010, 6:46 am

    Very heart-touching story..like it πŸ™‚

  • Jasmine August 11, 2010, 2:38 pm

    She is like an example for selfish people who just like themselves but the boy was the right example for people who love others from their deeps, I mean the real love and I always think that a true love can never be and this short story which carry so many meanings made me believe that more.

  • Major*cutie August 5, 2010, 7:21 am

    They say that love is blind but in dis case it was absolutely blind.

    The boy loved the girl despite of her blindness BUT WHEN D GIRL WAS GIVEN D GIFT OF EYES ON REALISING dat her boyfriend was blind left him in his miserable condition forgetting dat once upon a time she was blind too. The boy’s lov 4 d girl really sparkled through her selflessness.

  • Bella August 3, 2010, 12:57 pm

    @Nia – I think that her boyfriend just loved her and I think he thought that she loved him back because of what she said before about marriage with him I think that it was the girl who was foolish, she let go of someone who was selfless and understanding and loyal.

    I think that the girl was ungrateful too because apparently she threw away her perfectly good future in favour of an eye. Now I know that eyes are important – they are my life really. But the poor boy thought he could get married to her and well – love is blind !!!

  • Bahar July 23, 2010, 7:34 am

    It’s really a nice story and the true fact that very few people remember the curse which was done on them by someone but we all should remember one thing that if we do wrong with anyone the god is seeing us and writing it in his notebook and we definitely gets the reward of it one day so think before you speak and than do.

  • Nia July 20, 2010, 6:22 am

    Hmm… it’s a great story…but was her boyfriend foolish according to you?

  • Anisha July 16, 2010, 6:24 am

    I was very tense but when I read this story I am relax now and I will try to smile every time. Thanks.

  • PN July 16, 2010, 3:45 am

    Touching story! Good one!
    But utter foolishness of the boy to trust the girl! Should have discussed with her and given one eye only!

  • IROP July 13, 2010, 6:10 pm

    As a story it has pathos and bathos. It had to be written as given but to be totally realistic the guy could have given up one eye not two. Both of them could see fairly well with one eye. True there are problems but one eye is enough. BUT then you have no story. AND lucky you I would not be writting this missive. I have one question, would the girl spurn her lover if he only had one eye? If she did I would be heartily dissappointed. BUT WE WILL NEVER KNOW.

  • Shruthi July 13, 2010, 11:08 am

    I felt good reading this story, I learned a lot also and I know that what the girl did was wrong but I am feeling great about the love of the boy towards the girl and I also felt touching and bad for the boy who donated his eyes for his love.

  • Shruthi July 13, 2010, 11:06 am

    I felt good reading this story , i learn’t a lot also and i know that what the girl did was wrong but i am feeling great about the love of the boy towards the girl and i also felt touching and bad for the boy who donated the eyes for his love.

  • Sania July 9, 2010, 11:17 pm

    I read this before too
    how sad
    well he probablt wrote the letter before donating his eyes to her GF.

  • Majdoleen July 1, 2010, 2:16 pm

    Really nice …. it’s a very touching story!!

  • Sham July 1, 2010, 2:07 pm

    I really like story but I am very sad because girls want only god looking and reach person. This is heart touch story. Each person who felt down in love they must read this story.

  • Preethi July 1, 2010, 8:16 am

    I really felt sad for the boy. It is a very touching story.

  • Jigs June 26, 2010, 4:22 am

    Very nice story. Even if blind people can cry then this boy had eyes why can’t he and why he can’t write? It is a really nice story. People these days are very selfish.

  • Yusuf June 13, 2010, 7:54 am

    Amazing story… This is d first ever story i read nd felt in my heart… I don hav words to explain my feelings…

  • People with heart June 13, 2010, 2:44 am

  • Kim Ya Kul Pie June 7, 2010, 8:07 am

    Ya, this story is really so nice or so to say its AWESOME!

    AND the bottom of the story is so beautifully made to understand that even a person who reads it finds very interesting n leaves a touching sense of joy to the readers.

  • Sur May 30, 2010, 8:45 am

    A very touching story. It speaks the reality of modern era.

  • Anand May 14, 2010, 5:50 pm

    It is really an awesome story ….

  • Manu krishna April 30, 2010, 10:07 pm

    Stephen your stories are really interesting. God bless you. You make more than a thousand hearts happy.

  • Jono123 April 27, 2010, 1:52 pm

    What an act of complete selflessness. In most cases anyone giving away any object is a remarkable act of kindness. Giving away something so personal to an individual like your own eyes…. it is a manifestation of gods eternal love which we should be sharing with one another. What an example of absolute faith. Performing an act not knowing the outcome. Absolute faith.

    Remarkable. I think many could walk away after reading this with much affliction of some sort.

  • Tamasha April 25, 2010, 2:42 pm

    Yea I understand that, see what he did was giving her his eyes and she left with them not saying TY and not even accept the proposal. When you look at what people have done for you, you turn your back on that person, never do that because it repeats. So don’t be selfish, learn how to mean things and live what you said you were going to do. Selfishness is not the case so think about it. Don’t ever do what she did because life goes around and comes back.
