Is the grass greener on the other side?
It's human nature to wonder about this. When we're in a relationship, when we're at work, we wonder if this is as good as it gets, and we wonder if we're missing out or holding ourselves back from something better.
The grass always LOOKS greener on the other side, but when we get closer, we see that it doesn't look quite as attractive as it does from far away.
And sooner or later we find out that whether we’re on this patch of grass, or another patch of grass, we've still got to mow the lawn and water that grass. You've still got to maintain it for it to look green and healthy.
One of the hardest things in life is to acknowledge and admit that our happiness and our successes are not dependent upon external circumstances.
This awareness is the key to being happy in any relationship or any job, because it means we understand one very important thing in life - and that is to always look at what we can do to make ourselves happy, as opposed to what we could have to be happy.
A sign of whether we do have the grass is greener on the others side mindset is if we start to feel sorry for ourselves, that we start to feel shortchanged, that we feel that we deserve better... because that's when we'll stop putting in the effort to water our own grass, and things will get worse, not better. 
When something isn't working out, we acknowledge it and we exit the situation, whether it's a relationship or a job.
But if we find that we're constantly unhappy wherever we go, or whomever we're with, we have to start examining if it's the wrong relationship, the wrong job, or do we simply have the wrong mindset and attitude towards life.
It's never what's happening to us that makes us unhappy, it is always our reaction to what's happening that causes our misery. Not letting people or things dictate our happiness means never being the victim, and that is true freedom. Water the grass, and be happy always.
