... the other side of the fence". No matter what we do, if there is an option, we always seem to find a way of wanting that option and considering it to be better than what we already have. Then, if we end up getting the option we were craving for, we begin to desire our original situation once more - because it seems like the better option! I have had some of the most ridiculous, dumb and stupid occurances of this happening to me ... and still havent learnt from it. I wonder if anyone would like to share their most ridiculous occasions where 'The grass was greener ..."

Yes because we think that what we have not tried might be better than what we have tried. We do not know. Some people feel that having got what they want that they have been cheated because someone else has something that they do not have. It is just greed. They want everything so they are angry that having attained what they wanted it is not enough it does not give them everything and they go on a hungry crusade to get more. It will kill them in the end.
