The grass is always greener on the other side


In simple layman terms, "I see you good, you see me good jeh".

It's human nature that we will never be satisfied with the things we have. Well, depending on how you see it, it can easily be a good thing and a bad thing. The bad thing is, you can easily be devoured by greed. And you'll most likely going to end up losing more things than you can ever bargain for.

On the other hand, when you're not satisfied, you tend to either work harder or work your adaptabilities right to make you feel happier with your life as it is. Some people see company trips to Phuket like a dream come true and they worship the company like it's god. But some people see that as some ridiculous nonsensical nightmare, that the company is too stingy for its own good.

At the end of the day, it all just boils down to perspective. And it would always remain a fact of life that we will never be satisfied or entirely glad with what we have until we lose everything.

Perhaps there is a middle perspective between the two extremes of good thing and bad things.

Living in the moment, accepting the transient nature of life as is: it is neither rapturous nor wretched.
