Bigger, Better

“Is it just a human problem that we’re never happy?”

“No.”

“No?”

“It’s not a human problem.  It’s a sociatal problem.”

“Really?”

“Yes.  We’ve been told we need bigger, better things from a young age.  We reach our goal and go for another one.”

“A bigger, better goal.”

“To get bigger, better things.”

“Gotta go to college to get a bigger, better job so you can get a bigger, better car and a bigger, better house-”

“Where you put all your bigger, better things.”

~5 minutes of silence/staring at each other~

“Why can’t we be happy with what we got?”

“We just have to realize we don’t need anything more.  We just want more.”

    Oddly, perhaps not oddly, I am working in another direction to have less, perhaps not smaller, but less. And moving in a direction where I don’t need to work as hard or as much to have the life I want.
