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.

    Purity of love is that, we can do everything for loved ones without asking them and we never expect anythinfg from them. Please make sure when u comment bcoz it is love, the amazing word which will wind up happiness.

  • Ramyasudheer May 3, 2012, 6:50 pm

    Very good story forever, but he should have discussed with her first.

  • Anthony May 2, 2012, 4:26 pm

    Lina: NEVER wish someone to die. I believe she should have told him thank you for letting me see the world through his eyes.
    It was a very touching story nonetheless.But he did what he felt was right in his heart.

  • Nakia May 1, 2012, 9:56 pm

    This story is very touching. I understand the guy only wanted the girl to be happy. If I was the girl in the situation and I read that letter I would feel really bad for what I did to the guy.

  • Nau April 30, 2012, 6:30 pm

    The last paragraph really touched my heart deeply.

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

    Most of the time, I feel depressed and stressed, but when I read this, it actually put a smile on my face and I thanked God. πŸ™‚

  • Mayank April 30, 2012, 12:59 pm

    Very touching………..

  • Lito Sanchez April 27, 2012, 7:31 pm

    Love is a very substantial topic to discuss and argue with. . .something that we can’t really explain well that is simply because our heart doesn’t have brain that is why it is being placed in our chest part. let us stop fighting and airing the best views about the story above instead lets us be thankful that this story would helps us in anyway realize the value of LIFE and LOVE. . .point here is. . when you genuinely in love to someone regardless of imperfections be it physical, emotional and what not – it will find no answers to a questions! just live the way it is.

  • Rigio Yadi April 27, 2012, 6:42 am

    She did not love her boyfriend.

  • Venni April 22, 2012, 12:11 pm

    Touching but unrealistic.

  • Somebody April 19, 2012, 4:33 am

    I think this is a good story and reading the first couple of comments, not a whole lot of people really get this story. Yes he wanted to marry her but it’s talking about love and sacrifice. He knew that his gf all she wanted was to see so he sacrificed his own eyes for her for wat it to blow up in his face that girl was un greatful and ditched him but he didn’t get mad or upset because he loved her and it says something that I’m only 12 years old and I get this story and other probs older people don’t get it <3

  • Harsi March 24, 2012, 4:14 am

    Very thought provoking story, yes human instinct towards the same thing change with their progress in life, but it can be curtail if one having the power to be truthful.

  • Guest March 20, 2012, 11:27 pm

    The moral is plain and simple, he loves her so he gave her his eyes, and she probably felt terrible after finding out that.

  • Lizbina March 7, 2012, 3:35 pm

    Heart touching….

  • Ara March 7, 2012, 4:42 am

    God puts us in the situation we are right now because He has a purpose in us. His thoughts and ways are higher than us so never under estimate Him rejoice and be merry because He had given us the life to celebrate … smile though…

  • Arooj March 5, 2012, 11:27 pm

    Lovely and touching story <3

  • Slanderzen February 28, 2012, 12:58 am

    …But it doesn’t mean that if we sacrifice we can get what we wanted.. sometimes our own sacrifices is for the sake of other people.. like Jesus. To whom does he sacrifice for? For us, not for his personal reason…

  • Slanderzen February 28, 2012, 12:21 am

    What a nice story of sacrifice..

  • Raghini Rai February 22, 2012, 7:51 am

    love was all that the boy had for the girl in this wicked world there are very rare people whose love is true and straight from the heart.

  • vann February 21, 2012, 3:59 am

    I like this story very much, very heart touching.

  • Munazza February 20, 2012, 9:54 am

    That’s a great story……..day by day we are going to be materialized and doesn’t bother anyone. You should live for others never for just yourself.

  • Rukon, Dubai February 18, 2012, 8:23 am

    It’s really heart rending story & it makes my cry for this boy who generously donated his eyes to his GF. but alas ! how she refused to him it’s really touching story… women’s hearts are like that.

    Sky’s color & women’s heart both can change in a few minutes. πŸ˜€

  • Rizwan Kazi February 14, 2012, 5:43 am

    This story is heart tuching… The girl is so stupid when that boy can give up his eyes for her happiness so he can do any thing for her…

  • Zainab February 13, 2012, 3:39 am

    Really! Life is dynamic but we should take it easy.

  • Cedo February 11, 2012, 3:37 pm

    The moral of the story, as the honourable Mahatma Ghandi said, “If we believe in an eye for an eye, the whole world would be blind”, so he loved her very much to give his sight to her.

  • John February 9, 2012, 10:55 pm

    Are we blind in mind? Story teaches us a moral. Are we seeing it? Some of comments spell people only use their physical senses but not vertual and spiritual sense!

    Lets re-build ourselves higher than the buildings!

    Yah. Life is really a gift but Godliness with Contentment is a great gain.

  • Chuvi February 2, 2012, 3:28 am

    Really I felt like crying… she is unlucky… she doesn’t know d worth of that guy…she also forgot how lot she suffered without eyes, after getting eyes she proudly giving the pain to another…

  • Keji olalekan January 31, 2012, 3:39 pm

    I might sound like a very callous person here but i really doubt the plausibility of this story even though it might be non fiction. This is due to the fact that the boy should have notified the girl in the case of what he did to make her visually alright. Secondly, are we not thought to believe that love tolerates but despises not, so when you love any girl i think you should love her with every abilities and disabilites of hers. To draw the curtain i think this story is based on the guy’s inability to be logical: this is it, if the girl eventually gets her vision back and the guy loses his how would he be able to cope with his life activities? while the girl would able to. Would the girl be able to support him? Would the girl be willing to accept him as a blind man? This was just the guy’s failure to know much abt his girlfriend. More importantly it should be known that life is all abt give and take as you don’t sow where you can never reap but he sowed and he never reaped from his actions. Chikena.

  • Pallavi January 31, 2012, 7:10 am

    A wonderful and touching story.

  • James nathaniel January 28, 2012, 6:06 am

    How very touching this story is, really feel like letting the tears drop… but in my opinion, I feel the boy wasn’t so wise because he forgot one of love’s rules: don’t always love with your heart only, also love with your brain i.e (being rationally alert)… however this is a great lesson that’ll help one makes a wise choice to any situation one may face in life!

    Nyaah… sry about your sister, I manage to read ur story & I can tell that you’re now a changed man. Don’t worry much…..God can heal her, still trust him….

  • Lorna B. Chua January 27, 2012, 5:24 am

    A wonderful story for my values education class.

  • Jerry January 26, 2012, 5:26 am

    It an interesting story but in practical life, the boy should have asked himself questions like, does this girl really love me. Is it not bcos she can’t see. Is she not treacking me. Will she abandon the beauty of vission and marry him in same condition. Vission is one of the most wonderful gift from god. Those that can see break hearts talk more the blind. Well we all are in class rm learning everyday. Nice story

  • Jeanrol January 26, 2012, 2:46 am

    It’s a nice story… I can’t blame the girl, she knew that it’s not easy to live in this beautiful world without even seeing it… She knew the feeling of being a burden to someone you love, second is, She never asked the boy to give up his own eyes, and she never asked because she doesn’t want to have a blind BF… and it’s not right to marry someone just because he/she gave you something that’s important, you can thank him/her for the whole life, but to marry for that reason? That’s suicide..

  • Khushi January 22, 2012, 5:50 am

  • Swetha January 8, 2012, 8:24 am

    This story….made me cry..! :'(

  • Nithaam January 6, 2012, 7:52 am

    THIS story actually made me very emotional. It shows that WOMEN DO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF MEN, its not just the other way round. However, I feel that this should also be a lesson to men to not believe everything they are told, although it is debatable. We too can get hurt as well, I truly feel that guys pain.

    Thanks

    The story was good. I really enjoyed and sorry to say the boy but his girlfriend very bad

  • Ms LiLmJ January 2, 2012, 5:20 am

    The story is awesome.

  • LIFEHEALER December 29, 2011, 6:04 am

    It is mostly 100% human behavior. They judge so quickly that they forgot the essence of love they once had and shared. Love is a feeling, It will fade anyway but the most important thing is, how we give importance and never give up the one we have love.

    Let the love grows each day. Even one day if its taken for granted, trust me, it will end up so quickly that you will lost interest and thrill to your partner.

    Keep loving, be forgiving and forget the arguement and mostly always wear your most beautiful smile when you are with him.

  • Nightshade December 28, 2011, 8:11 pm

    I didn’t read everyone’s response as there are too many but I have my own view on the morale or should I say what it says to me personally…To me I think it means that even though the girl was blind and yes you should feel sympathy for people in that situation but that does not mean that they are good people inside……or something like that.

  • Shri December 27, 2011, 6:49 am

    The moral of the story is good but this type of boy is not born on our earth.

  • Devilic December 26, 2011, 6:19 am

    aww.. that’s called whta they say is “TRUE LOVE” …

    feels sorry for the boy πŸ™

    yet a very very touching story!

  • Varnika December 23, 2011, 10:19 am

    The story rightly says we must not give up and try to have confidence on us.

  • Logu December 22, 2011, 12:16 pm

    This is how the majority of boys do when they fall in Love !! They will do anything for girls !!

  • Kris December 16, 2011, 3:19 pm

    The moral of the story is good. It’s really the reality of life.

    “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.”

    You don’t need to scrutinize the story by details because what’s important is the moral that we get out of the whole story. That’s the problem of us people we tend to see the defects rather than the good that we can get. Let’s check ourselves first before we try to act as if we’re smart.

    If you don’t have anything good to say, don’t say anything.

  • Somayajulu December 12, 2011, 5:20 am

    It is heat touching story. But we are not Karnas. Whatever other person requires, we cannot donate. We have to think 10 times before we take the decision whether we are taking the right decision or wrong. We have to avoid to take the decision while we are in sad mood or angry mood. Otherwise, we have to face the consequences like this.

  • Manu December 6, 2011, 7:04 am

    It’s really heart touching, I see the same story in my life. A poor girl lost her parents, a selfish guy entered into her life, she loved him honestly. In few days, a rich girl enter his life.

    He left the girl, she attempted suicide. After two days she is late… but he is very happy with his new girlfriend…

  • Human December 3, 2011, 7:46 pm

    This story is reflective of how some of us treat the Lord. We always want more than He has already given us. Forgetting to be thankful for the blessings we already have. We ask for more, then when we receive it we reject him. God gave the ultimate sacrifice by sending his Son Jesus, He gave His life to save ours and everytime we disobey Him we are rejecting Him. Just as the woman in this story.

  • AShi November 30, 2011, 6:00 pm

    It is an Amazing story πŸ˜› The girl was so mean and selfish shame on her πŸ™ but that’s call true love which the boy did πŸ™‚

  • Rita Swetha November 27, 2011, 4:44 am

    Love this story. I am sure at any situation I won’t leave my lover… love you Safar… πŸ™‚

  • Wise one November 25, 2011, 7:46 am

    Someone told this story but it was the other way round; the boy was blind and rejected the girl when she gave him her eyes and he rejected her.

    Both men and women can be cruel heartbreakers so there is no point trying to argue that one gender is worse than the others, or ‘harpies.’ We are both cruel to the opposite sex, not because we want to hurt others but usually because we are not satisfied within something within ourselves, whether that’s because they’re not who we’re looking for and we’re disappointed and take our frustration out on them, or they are what we’re looking for but we’re too insecure to trust the other person. There are people who treat the opposite sex horribly in both genders- look at shows like Tool Academy and Beauty and the Geek. I have met so many woman who have had their hearts torn to shreds by men (including myself) and I have met some men who have had similar experiences with women. It is not a competition of who is victimised the most by the opposite sex.

    Personally I think using the story to re-inforce ypur negative, bitter experiences with men/women is the complete opposite to what the story is designed to tell us.
    I thought that the story meant that when you really really love someone, be careful because if you give too much of yourself to the other person, it will repulse them and drive them away. They will take your over self sacrifice as a repulsion, not an asset. So if you do fall in love with someone, be careful not to lose yourself to them. If he had given her one eye, personally I think she would have looked at herself in the mirror, realised she was a ‘better person’ but not got such a haughty opinion of herself because she wasn’t ‘spoilt’ with too much. She would have then looked at her boyfreind and as others have said, recognised him as an equal. He would have had the power to present himself to her in that way by controlling himself and despite his feelings, being careful to give himself to her, but not his whole self which in the real world, is how love usually has to be if you don’t want to be seen as a desperate doormat and dumped.

    so the real moral of the story, or message I thought was that in the real world, Love is delicate and precious and you have to work hard not to break it. Falling for someone so much can’t really be avoided, but be careful how you behave with that person and be careful not to give yourself away too much to that person..give enough that they will be enhanced and see you as an equal but don’t give your whole self away so that they have all of you and you are left with nothing; it won’t make them love you anyway it will just repulse them and make them see you as a desperate doormat who will do anything for you. We are all attracted to Confidence

    Superb story… lovely.

  • Vidisha Ghosh November 22, 2011, 12:20 am

    It is a beautiful story. The girl is so bad. Makes me feel like crying.

  • Anil Chauhan November 20, 2011, 6:59 am

    This story tells us about sacrifice, because he loves her, but as on today there are very less person they will do the sacrifice like this.

    It’s very interesting & touching story, this story tell us don’t blindly love someone.

  • Princess Mia November 15, 2011, 5:15 am

    OMG! That made me feel really sad inside.
    That is the sweetest thing in the world!
    The girl is an idiot and very shallow if she finally gained her sight then dumped her boyfriend.
    I feel sorry for him.
    Very touching, loved it.
