Have you ever been to a restaurant with your friend and became frustrated with yourself after seeing what your friend ordered?
We all have been there, but, it isn’t a place where anybody likes to be. Unfortunately, it is a part of human nature to always look over to the other side of the fence. Because of that, people have become generally unhappy and have learned to always be frustrated with something in their life.
Even though there are constantly things in our lives to be happy about, people choose to look at and dwell upon the few things in their life that could be better.
If you just think about the things in your life that you want to change, you are going to be unhappy, which is exactly what happens to people. It doesn’t matter how much money you have or how good looking you may be, there will always be something you want to change,but, you can’t focus on it.
That’s what people have trouble understanding.
People like to complain about everything that they don’t like just to “get their feelings out and try to make the world a better place”, but, they are just wasting their own energy and taking away a few minutes, not only from their life, but, from somebody else’s life as well.
Plus, there is always hundreds of things laying in front of you just waiting for you to complain about them. Saying that, when you wake up one morning and the biggest complaint that you had disappeared, something else begins to annoy you and you begin to go on and on about that.
Even though there are some people who are very happy all the time, human nature and our first instinct is to dwell upon the things that don’t go our way.
