Explained by Sukiesnow...

Why are people made that way?

We think that "the grass is always greener on the other side." We feel like we're missing something better.

Why do people have to feel that way? Psychologically or physiologically...what might be the reason....

We just need more. I don't know why anymore than you do. Probably a combination of both physio and psycho but I'm no scientist.

I think a lot of people live their lives in self-denial. When you are constantly not experiencing new things, not having new things...you can always see that life might be greener on the other side.... JMHO

I usually have a sip or two of diet coke at night. When I don't have it I feel I really need to have it and look all over the house to see if there is any soda here at all. I really don't want much except a new house . Yet I know I must wait for the right one. Cheap but livable

I was realizing (see below)...that when a person wants something they can't have it means...or it might mean...that you want something like that in your life...or something better.... Like if I want a bracelet I can't afford...it means that I want something better...symbolically it probably doesn't even mean i want the bracelet ....if Freud was here he would say I want ****...yeah...well that, too...lol... Okay...no more wine for me...ha...

It more means that you are striving to better your life and this is how it is showing up...

I can understand the appeal to some people, but not in my case, nope. If I want something, is because I like it. I never thought if it was because I can or can't have it.

You want a bracelet at Tiffany's but it's 800 bucks...a guy you like is with a girl you don't like...you don't like him just a teensy bit more for being inaccessible ??

I don't care if the bracelet is expensive or not - if I like it, I'll want it. The price doesn't change that for less or more.

And no. Inaccessibility isn't attractive to me.

How is it not to want something better...aa better apt., house, or life....sometimes you don't know it what you see it...until you see it...

I think I'm getting a handle on this, a little bit.

How did you conclude that? You weren't talking about wanting better things - you were talking about wanting something more when you can't have it. That's not the same thing.

So, I don't know how it is to not want something better. There's a lot of stuff I want better.

So...when you see a bracelet for Very High Price...it doesn't make you want it? Even more?

I think that the "grass is always greener" etc. might mean that it instigates people to want something better...:)

In response to “So...when you see a bracelet for Very High...

No. Just because it's expensive, it doesn't mean it's pretty or something I would wear.

Do I want better things? Yes.
Do I want it because I can't have it? No. That's not why I want it. I want it because I like it, because it's more comfortable, makes my life easier and such. But the fact that I can't have something doesn't make it more or less appealing to me.
I was talking about the second question, because that's what I saw on your post. I didn't see it as you talking about wanting better things, but as talking about wanting something more when I can't have it. How the inaccessibility is attractive, which I don't think it is. And then you lumped it all together, which confused me. Sorry about that.
