Life is a mirror . . .


. . . let me tell you a story:

Life is a Mirror

A poor boy was in love with a rich man’s daughter. One day, the boy proposed to her, and the girl said, “Your monthly salary is equivalent to my daily expenses. How can I be involved with you?” She went on, “How could you have thought of that? I can never love you, so forget about me and get engaged to someone else of your level.” But for some reason, the boy could not forget her so easily.

Roughly 10 years later, they stumbled into each other in a shopping mall. She immediately said, “Hey, you! How are you? Now I’m married, and do you know how much my husband’s salary is? P20,700 per month! Can you beat that? And he is also very smart.”

The man’s eyes became wet with tears on hearing those words from the woman he used to care for. A few seconds later, her husband came around. But before the lady could say a word, her husband saw the man and said, “Sir, you’re here! And you’ve met my wife!”

Then he turned to his wife, “This is my boss who runs the P300 million project I’ve been working on! And if you want to know something strange about him, he once loved a lady but he couldn’t win her heart. That’s why he has remained unmarried since.” He went on, “How lucky would that lady have been if she had married this man right here?”

The lady looked in total shock but couldn’t utter a word.



Life is very short and just like a mirror. We can only see as much as it reflects. So don’t be too arrogant or proud by looking down on others because of their current situations. Things can change with time, just like the weather. Don’t underestimate anyone, because everyone has a different story!
