They say “The grass is greener on the other side of the fence”. This refers to the way we tend to look at other people’s lives and other things that we don’t have in general.
It comes from the idea of you looking at a neighbour’s lawn and seeing it as better looking, healthier and especially greener than your own, but actually you are just NOT looking at the negative aspects of it, but only giving a lower profile to your own.
At times you make all you can to jump to the other side of the fence and then, once you see things from there, you see the grass was not as greener as you saw it from your former perspective.
Sometimes it is already too late to jump back to your original lawn. Things have changed. And your old lawn is no longer there.
I have been told many times that there are things we are unable to learn from the experience of others. Some things we need to experience in our own flesh in order to really understand it and get the lesson from it.
So how are things now on your side of the fence?
Have you REALLY evaluated the place where you are standing on now?
Believe me, most times if you are not happy where you are at now, it will be very difficult to find happiness on the other side. There are some exceptions of course.
I am not saying looking for a change in your life, activities or place of residence is a bad thing.
