Parable of the Day: A Blind Girl Hates Herself Just Because of Her Disability
Stacy is a 23-year-old blind young woman who cannot stand the fact that she has a disability. In turn, she also hates everyone because she feels inferior to them.
However, there is only one person whom she loves dearly, and it is her boyfriend, Thomas. He is always there for his high school sweetheart; hence she only trusts him.
Thomas checks up on her every day as even though her family is also supportive. They are also overwhelmed because their daughter does not give them the time of day.
Stacy blames her parents for her blindness and gives them the cold shoulder every time they try to care for her. Growing up, Thomas was the only boy who gave her attention.
To him, Stacy's disability was not an issue, and he liked her despite her differences. They have been dating ever since, and Stacy always feels better about herself when she is around Thomas.
She even said if she only could see the world, then she would marry him. One day, someone donated a pair of eyes to her, and she now had eyesight.
Stacy could now see her boyfriend. Thomas then asked her, “now that you can see the world, will you marry?” She was shocked when she saw that Thomas was blind too and refused to marry him.
Thomas was shattered, he believed Stacy would also love him just as he did when she was blind, but it was not the case. He walked away in tears and wrote a letter saying:
“Just take care of my eyes.”
In another story, a poor slave whose master ill-treated him helped a lion. The feline then returned the favor in the greatest way possible.
The slave’s master mistreated him, and he ran away to the forest. While walking in the woods, he came across a lion in pain because of a thorn in his paw. The slave bravely removed the thorn gently.
The lion then went away without hurting him. Days later, the slave's master came hunting in the forest and caught animals, putting them in cages. The slave was spotted by the master's men, who caught him and brought him back to the cruel master.
The master ordered the men to throw the slave into the lion’s cage. While awaiting his death in the cage, he realized that it is the same lion that he had helped. The slave helped the lion and all other caged animals.
The moral of this parable is that one should help others in need whenever possible. We get the rewards of our helpful acts in return.
