are you satisfied with the present lifestyle you have or do you wish you should have a different one? Do you feel you have messed it up or do you blame your luck? I am satisfied with what I have and I feel that when one desires more and if it doesn't come then that itself is the cause of unhappiness or restlessness- what about you? I feel that we should enjoy with what we have or get rather than always crave for more

I believe that no man has satisfaction in life as we are a constant travelers.As we are living we always look for some new things to explore and try.We can be satisfied in some way but not as a whole.Any man who continues to uncover new things are never be satisfied.

I believe that too- that no human is satisfied - probably the only people who are satisfied are (1) those saintly types who have given up all materialistic thoughts as well and live a secluded & reclusive life far away in the forests or mountains, away from civilisations or (2) people in the mental asylums who have no control over their thinking!! when I said 'satisfied' I meant and forgot to mention that it does not mean completely satisfied ( as no human is) - mostly satisfied of his needs & goals.

People normally feel dissatisfaction in life. I am happy with my life right now but honestly, I am not yet satisfied with what I have achieved. There are still a lot of things I would like to achieve and accomplish. I want to have more and enjoy many more things. I believe that a person can be satisfied if he/she has already reached the highest in the hierarchy of needs according to Abraham Maslow which is self-actualization. It is the highest achievement one can ever have. This is all about personal growth and fulfillment. It will still take many years for a person to obtain this. Some people cannot even reach to this point in life.

At the moment, I'm enjoying my life and is satisfied with it. Even though at times I might feel down because I don't have proper paid job, but it's fun to stay in front of the computer responding to discussions and earning some money.

I'm satisfied. I just need more income to make ends meet, be able not to have the pressure to cook everyday, be able to go to dinner more often and be able to go on a vacation with my family from time to time.

i am NOT satisfied with what i have and with who i am. i think this kind of pronouncement will motivate people to achieve more and become better than what they are now. my unsatisfaction lies in the belief that there is something better for me if i persevere and work hard. i deserve that situation if i put my heart onto it. i will become better and i will achieve that without hurting and harming others.
