We only care about the problems we are facing right now, forgetting the problems we were facing at some point but have overcome now. We’re not grateful for the problems we don’t have to face, only miserable for the ones we’re facing now.
If you are living a comfortable life and everything is being provided for you and still you keep wanting more, you got things to learn. People are really struggling out there to get the resources you have. What you take for granted is someone else’s privilege.
If you don’t stop and think of the problems you don’t have, you will live an ungrateful and perpetually dissatisfied life. In that case, however much you may get, it would fail to make you happy. For you will keep looking for more, while forgetting that you could have had less.
