The Girl and the Mirror Written by Alberto Monnar

Linda Weinerman (Editor)

It was dark, and Britney was very fearful. Britney, who was 14 years old, thought that she was the prettiest girl in the world. Very frequently, she would gaze into the mirror and think she saw perfection. Britney was conceited and arrogant. Days, weeks, months, and years passed and Britney still had those characteristics.

Her mother was very patient and explained that beauty was not all in life. Kindness, sympathy, compassion, and consideration to others are the key to happiness; as well, determination and tenacity are the answer when it comes to studies and goals in life in order to succeed.

Britney would see her mother moving her mouth, but the advice went in one ear, and out the other. Until one day when her world was turned inside out. It started after school when she had a fight with her boyfriend because he refused to carry all of her belongings. He would usually carry her stuff around because he was madly in love. Her beauty was what attracted him to her from the second he met her, plus he cared for her spunkiness also. But after a while of her being so demanding, pushy, arrogant, and conceited, he grew tired of it. He felt weary, and very exhausted. He continuously had to prove himself to her by answering to her demands just to please her. The more he did the less satisfied she was. As they fought he told her, “Unless you decide to change, I don’t want to be your boyfriend anymore!” But Britney didn’t believe in changing.

At that moment, Britney decided to go for a walk to cool down. As it started to get dark she noticed a pathway. It led to where she had never been before. As Britney walked she realized that the passageway led to her house. As it grew darker she also recognized that she was in the middle of nowhere—lost, hungry, and thirsty. Britney’s day was not going well at all.

"What should I do if I’m lost and lonely while everyone should be doing what I want instead?"
