The phrase of grass being greener on the other side is a popular one. In several cases, the grass is not as green on the other side as it appears to be. However, there are some cases when the grass is much greener on the other side. Whether income on the other side is better or there is more happiness on the other side, there will be moments when the grass is greener on the other side.
The most common choice is to simply stare at the greener grass with the “I wish that was me” attitude. Looking at the greener grass on the other side does not make your situation any better. Your grass will not get any greener than it is now. In fact, the grass on your side may get worse.
The less common choice is to do what you can to make your grass greener than the other side. You do not necessarily have to convert to the other side to have greener grass. Many times, by going to the other side, you will be able to understand what you lost by going to that side. As a result, the grass on the side you left suddenly looks greener. The best thing you can do is work on making your grass greener. There is no reason to accept the rules that everyone else follows.
Don’t go for the greener grass. Make the grass you already have greener.
