There's always someone out there who will tell you "the grass is always greener on the other side..."
Well there's also Aesop telling you that a fox deemed some grapes high up the vines sour and unripe just because he couldn't get to them.
Well just because some people around you may be contented eating the same grass everyday, and telling you that grapes on the top part of the vines are sour, it doesn't mean that they're right.
In fact, most likely you're wrong to follow their thinking.
Wrong in the sense that what they want may not be what you want. Some may want to live ordinary lives. Others may want to go on an adventure. Some prefer climbing corporate ladders. Others prefer to make a difference.
No right nor wrong. It's just a matter of perspective.
