I Am Never Satisfied

    I like to chalk it up to my ambition,

    , but I always want more. Whenever I meet a goal, the satisfaction is short lived. Sure, I enjoy victory. Who doesn't? But for me, it just means that I now have to accomplish something greater. I always think, "There is no way that I could outperform myself," but I always find a...

    I spent years of high school hating everything,

    everyone. I got college and it was all great. And here I find myself sitting at my desk, crying, because I got bored again. I keep getting bored. I got bored being home-schooled and left for public school. I got bored of high school and graduated early. Now I'm getting bored...

    Sometimes it's a flaw

    and sometimes it's a bonus. Sometimes me being unsatisfied leads to me complaining too much or over thinking things. Or it can take a turn into another direction and lead to me making major progress by making me want to continuously improve things. But everyone has their flaws.

    Never.

    With anything in my life. I don't know how I can fix this, or where I even start.

    I'm not, with anything.

    I'm not satisfied with Earth, the way us modern humans live. I'm not satisfied with the food we eat, the jobs we do, the places we live. I'm not satisfied with everyday chatter about fake stuff that don't even matter. I'm just not satisfied with this existence. I try and I try...

    Are we ever fully satisfied?

    I think, as curious human beings, we not only want to know everything, but we want to be everything. That's definitely an issue that resides within me, at least. Perhaps, some may blame their elderly figures; I for one do see that a lot of these 'un-satisfied' traits do stem...
