“We refuse to make decisions because there are too many options and possibilities, we don’t know what we want or we don’t want to miss a better alternative. We dabble in this, we wait for that, we live for the moment – and yet the grass is still greener on the other side. Apparently, it’s because we’re part of the Generation Undecided. Sounds like it’s a very dissatisfied generation to me..”
I read this on the Facebook profile of one of my friends and I could’t agree more. Everytime we achieve something, we already long for more without even celebrating our achievements. We are never happy with what we have, we always want more and more and more. When will this ever stop? When will we ever settle down and be happy about what we have. Just for a short little moment – only appreciating what is there and not thinking about what we might need on top of it.
Why do we keep dating more and more people and never settle with one of them? Are we afraid to miss out on something? If we think that someone is perfect and made for us we also directly start thinking that there might be more out there, something better that we are just about to find… that’s what keeps us searching and on the run.
I wish I could just settle down somewhere. Find my own little space that makes me happy and stops me from asking the inevitable question of “is there more? Am I missing something?” I wish nothing more than being happy but why is it that I just can’t be happy with what I have? I am constantly longing for something else, something new, something exciting without even knowing what it is I am longing for.
