They say that the grass is greener on the other side.
Well...it probably is.
Sure, they have a bigger house, better jobs, more schooling, better behaved children, etc.
I'll let you in on a little point, however...
Most if not all the people that you know and/or interact with on a daily basis are problematic.
I'm not calling their actions problematic, no, I am truly calling their entire being problematic.
Of course, I do so in love and not out of spite; I don't wish to see others as problematic, but it is unfortunate when I see people being blown around and about by an EF-5 twister, everyday, every hour, every second.
They are by definition unstable, since they are after pleasures. Pleasures by themselves are not the problem (they are actually quite 'pleasurable') but people make a big mistake here.
A crucial mistake...
They go after pleasures instead of letting pleasures come to them.
When you are the object of pleasure, you will be pleasantly surprised about how many things around you are quite pleasant.
Seemingly mundane things like pictures, or nature, or cars driving down the road, or people and their conversations.
You see, when you thought that pleasure was to be found in the individual things that you were seeking, you immediately cut yourself off to everything around you; cutting off life itself.
When you have nothing to pursue you have nothing to fail at.
Let your dreams and desires come to you for a change.
So sure the grass might be greener on the other side,
but it's your grass too.
