Hello all ... when we are prevented from doing something such as taking sugar in diabetic we feel of great desire to do that thing ... but when it was available for us we didn't feel od this desire ... why do you think this happens ??? why do we always want the things that don't belong to us?

When you can have something or when it's readily available, we tend to take it for granted because it's always there. Once we can no longer have it, we realize that we will miss it. However, there are usually alternatives...other things that we can have to fill the void so all is not lost.

I don't know why people want what they can't have. I guess they just love the chase bc it makes their lives more interesting? Or perhaps it makes them feel rebellious and/or more grown up? For example, underage drinkers. Cravings and distance also make the heart grow fonder. I kinda despise that saying, though. It just shows that humans take what they already have for granted.
