Because people enjoy complaining about what they don't have. If it was all taken away from them, then they would learn to appreciate what comes their way.
Somewhere in someone's life they do.
They think happiness comes from things. When they lose that momentary happiness or thrill, they get bored with what they have.
It's easy, and you know that as well. One will miss things the most when those things are gone -forever. Or when they see what they don't have, but what others have.
You can compare....for example you would be happy to have a functional family or some real and close friends.
Others might have that, but they don't know how it is to not have this. So this is their world.
One will always have something they don't get along with. Be it the parents or whatever.
If they have parents, it might be them. If they don't have parents, just then they will miss them, and won't get along with something else.
But they're not always to blame completely about it. Exept the ones that are truly just stupid brats.
Its greed, what you have is never enough. You always want more.
Those who feel satisfied with what they have are happy individuals who enjoy life.
Ignorance. Not Saying That In A Bad Way,Their Just Blinded By Internal/External Issues That They Don't Realize What They Reallly Have
I'll Admit,I Can Be Ignorant. But I'm Not Proud Of It.
because we are greedy and are always going to want more
Everything is relative to your experience. If you are referring to material posessions, a guy in a shack in Chile once told me he had everything he ever wanted. I also have students, here in America, that would go to bed hungry, wake up hungry, and wonder if they're going to get beat to death by their parents on meth. By American relativity, I come from an extremely poor background. But since it's America, it didn't stop me from becoming what USED to be upper middle class. So I tell those students the same thing I tell you; Yes, life sucks now, but if you want it to get any better, stop complaining and get making it what you want it to be. It's worked for a few of them.
Maybe most of them have never NOT had it, and so have nothing to compare.
Today's people only?
How many of us are appreciative of those today's people WE have got?
take a good look at you
no one is different really
maybe some people don't appreciate things that come to easily to them
