    Why do people believe that the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence?

    It seems that a lot of people are never satisfied with what they have.

    Becuase tha neighbors lawn always seems to be richer in nutrients then yours so the greener affect is one that get is done by watering and chemicals. the secret is to fertalize your neighbors lawn with salt so that it will keep the grass from growing and will eventually turn brown. Then your grass will be the greener side smile

    We're selfish. We always want more and are envious of those we believe are better off than us. It's petty, but almost all people do it at some point.

    Contentment is a matter of the heart - it does not go outside of itself to be satisfied.  Though other people may seem to have it better, as we view from a distance, we have no clue what is going on in their lives ... and money does not bring happiness.  A person who has learned to be content with what they have or where they are in life has learned the secret of true peace.

    Because it is human nature to strive for more or better. It is the key to survival. Ok, well maybe it's just the key to being American. Unfortunately, most of the time we realize that what we were looking for or hoping for is already here.
