We often find ourselves envying the lives of people we both know and don’t know lead. Seated from our comfortable seats in front of our 32” flat screen LCD monitor, we wish we could trade lives with someone whom we very easily think is having a ‘better’ life. Be it in terms of having a blessed family, or a weekend full of crazy parties, or the one who gets to displace themselves physically every other week or month. In a nutshell, we think they’ve got it all and forget to consider the issues and struggles they have chosen note to share via the online medium. The wrong decisions they’ve made, the disappointments they’re trying to come to terms with and their sadness gets masked beneath their multitude of posts to share their beautiful and happy moments.
But, is the grass really greener on the side of the pasture or is it just our wants and desires that’s getting the better of us?
Remember that for every person who you envy and want to swap lives with, there will be at least one other person willing to be in your seat. So, cherish what you have got as cliche as it may sound, cause the grass may not always be greener on the other side.
Have you caught yourself in this position before?
