The grass isn’t always greener on the other side. In life, there are times when we always look to find something better, something different or want change. Throughout my life, I have observed this in relationships and friendship between people. Why is it in life, most of us tend to see the negative in our partners or our friends?
When we have an argument with someone, we tend to point out all of the negatives and never consider the good in the other person. We may try to move away from the relationship with that person in order to find something different. Unfortunately, the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. Instead of us abandoning relationships and possibly missing out on the best things we have in life, why can we not take time to be grateful for those that are in our lives?
Sure, we always won’t agree with our friends or partners. Instead of getting caught up in the nasty web of negativity, why is it so hard for some of us to be grateful for what we have? I would like to challenge you all and myself to take a step back and be grateful for those in our lives. Let us find positive reasons why we like other people and focus on that. Let us take a moment to reflect on the good in people. Our world has too much negativity in it. Focusing on good in others is a key to strengthening relationships.
Can we build each other up instead of tear each other down? Please don’t let our way of thinking allow us to lose someone we may actually care about. We may not realize it until it is too late. Remember, the grass isn’t always greener on the other side.
