Brain and Status
The Brain – Something to Think About
The brain and our status affect our lives in many ways that we should pay more attention to in order to understand ourselves.
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. She was then able to 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. She then 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, for I loved you so much that it was I who was the donor of your gift”
This is how the human brain changes when our status changes. Only few remember what life was before, and who’s always been there even in the most painful situations.
The brain and status – perceptions and reality!
