"The Blind Girl "
Once upon a time there was a beautiful but blind girl who hated herself just because she was blind.
The only person she didn’t hate was her loving boyfriend. He was always there for her while no one else was. He loved her how she was, no matter what.
She always said that if she could only see the world, she would marry him and continued saying the same thing.
One day, someone donated a pair of eyes to her – So she could see everything, including her boyfriend. She was healed!
When she woke up after the operation, the first thing she saw was her boyfriend. Then he said: “now that you can see the world my dear, will you marry me?”
But the girl was shocked when she saw that her boyfriend was blind too, and refused to marry him because he was blind.
Her boyfriend was devastated and walked away in tears. A couple of days later he wrote her a letter. She opened it and inside it said:
“Just take care of my eyes dear, love you always ..........”
She couldn't stop crying in pain and remorse, now that she could see the world she refuse the person who made himself blind to make her look this wonderful world through her eyes.
Moral of the story:

Translation into Portuguese
Título da história: A garota cega
Era uma vez havia uma garota linda, mas cega, que se odiava só porque era cega.
A única pessoa que ela não odiava era seu namorado amoroso. Ele sempre estava lá para ela enquanto ninguém mais estava. Ele a amava como ela era, não importava o quê.
Ela sempre disse que se ao menos pudesse ver o mundo, ela se casaria com ele e continuou dizendo a mesma coisa.
Um dia, alguém doou um par de olhos para ela - Então ela podia ver tudo, inclusive o namorado. Ela estava curada!
Quando ela acordou após a operação, a primeira coisa que viu foi o namorado. Então ele disse: “agora que você pode ver o mundo, minha querida, quer se casar comigo?”
Mas a menina ficou chocada ao ver que seu namorado também era cego e se recusou a se casar com ele, porque ele era cego.
Seu namorado ficou arrasado e foi embora em lágrimas. Alguns dias depois, ele escreveu uma carta para ela. Ela abriu e dentro dizia:
“Apenas cuide dos meus olhos querida, te amo sempre ..........”
Ela não conseguia parar de chorar de dor e remorso, agora que ela podia ver o mundo, ela recusou a pessoa que se tornou cega para fazê-la ver este mundo maravilhoso através de seus olhos.
Moral da história:
"Quando as coisas mudam para melhor, podemos escolher como nos comportar. Algumas pessoas podem não ser capazes de ver como as coisas eram antes, e podem não ser capazes de apreciá-las. Lembre-se de como era sua vida antes das mudanças, e quem sempre esteve lá por você, não importa o quê ".
