The abominable “Grass is greener” accusation

David accused me of being that person. You know, the “grass is always greener on the other side” type of person. I guess I was supposed to be offended by it, but I never truly understood why was that such a bad thing.

Here’s what happens when you want your grass to be greener:

1. It means that you want more

2. It means that you are willing to push yourself to get it (in my case at least)

3. It means that you want change

4. It means you acknowledge status quo and want to do something about it (since if status quo was satisfactory, such observations wouldn’t be necessary)

Now, before you say I am going off on a tangent and that the grass is greener usually implies that the other circumstances¬†really are not any better…. I will tell you what I told David.

I told him the whole “grass is greener” is true. There’s a reason why we think something is better elsewhere… because somebody else is doing something better than we are….and their results are staring us in the face.

Most of the time in my life where I did something to change my situation because I wanted more, it worked out better for me. I improved what I wasn’t doing that good and perfected it…. and guess what, my grass got greener than too.
