In life, people are always searching for something better than what they have. That’s what it’s really all about. You want better for your friends, you want better for your family and of course you are always in search of better for yourself. And while striving and searching for improvement is a noble trait to have, too often we warp and manipulate this trait into something that becomes a detriment to ourselves.
“Cue The Rant!”
There are a lot of single people that think they deserve better. And that’s why they are still single. Humble yourself. It’s just like gambling. You win $500 in the casino and you can either walk way on top or you can tell yourself “I can do better” and risk your winnings. Just like with life, the house always wins. All the losers in Vegas thought they could do better too. Take the lesson from the situation and quit while you’re ahead. While you are busy checking out how green the grass is on the other side, you don’t realize how great your grass is right in front of you. Because you assume that there is someone else out there that is better than the good you have already, you make a questionable decision that you will more than likely end up regretting later. That’s called being greedy.
And I’m not saying you have to settle or pick any ol’ person. My point is that it is already hard as hell to find a good person suitable to date out here and if you have been dating you’d know that. You know there isn’t this big excellent pool of awesome candidates to choose from. You are a hungry fisherman that caught a huge fish to eat but decided to let it go to try to find something bigger and better. Do you really want to try those odds?
Greed is a bottomless pit which exhausts the person in an endless effort to satisfy the need without ever reaching satisfaction. – Erich Fromm, Escape From Freedom
What it all boils down to is having an appreciation for you already have and what has been presented to you. Don’t let your ego or greed contribute to you losing out on something that is good for you. That gluttony will almost always come back to bite you in the ass. But if you fancy yourself a risk taker and are really stuck on the notion that you will get everything you deserve, remember, that is true. You’ll get exactly what you deserve.
That’s it for this week. Don’t forget to cue the Sir Charles.
