Have you noticed that we’re always thinking that we’ll be happy when we’ll have “that thing”? But have you noticed that we almost never go beyond that? Like, really going beyond. Have you imagined how your life is going to be if you have “that thing” or that person? If so, for how long? A day? A month? But have you ever thought about “having” for one year or for five years? Do you think you’ll keep the enthusiasm you have now?
I think that we’re getting stuck in the idea of having a certain thing or being with a certain person which will make our lives great, but we’re not truly thinking about how our lives are going to be after a while with that person or thing (I know I’m not thinking about that). Would we really appreciate that as we did before? Probably not. In time, we’re leaving everything to fade away. Why? Because we’re always in the pursuit for something new. That’s our nature. We can’t help ourselves.
Maybe the solution of getting over this point is to imagine your future life after you have that thing or person. Think about it in detail. Is your life truly going to be that awesome you think now? Why do you think that?

Thats why we never appreciate our parents take them for granted..
They always there for us… I realize this when I fight with my friend but hug him all the more tightly once we undergo a hiatus.. and i think more aware you are of someone’s presence in your life the better :)))) we need to stop looking for highs and looking for what makes us feel at home 😇
I couldn’t have said it better! Life seems to be unconsciously full of moments of hoping and trying to believe the future will be better.
