The grass is always greener on the other side. For the human race it seems that it always is. We seem to be under the odd illusion that the best things are the ones that we do not have. The ones on the other side. Why the hell is this? Why do we long for other things? Why do they seem so much better then what we have?
I have a theory. An odd one too. I believe that the world around us moves so fast that we get extremely bored easily. We get use to what we have. We start to notice the flaws of what we have and suddenly what someone else has seems so much better.
Curvy people long to be petite. Petite people long to have curves. I’m going to be honest, it utterly sucks.
The thing is the nature of humans is to always want more. We consume lots, we are on the top of the food chain and we have a lot of power. There is always more in our lives. It’s easy for us to be able to get better things. We are so use to the idea of new things that we get bored of the old ones.
So in short I think the fact that the grass always seems greener on the other side is related to consumerism and the fast moving pace of the world.
