Have you every considered the excessive behavior associated with wanting and demanding? We are insatiable. Our detailed existence offers us so much content; yet most people seem so discontent. This statement may cause frustration or even anxiety in you. This is because the mind will offer thoughts that insist that you are happy. It will deny wanting anything. The internet dictionary defines discontent as “A restless longing for better circumstances.”
Resentment is a synonym of discontent . It is defined as “bitter indignation at having been treated unfairly.” Why do we always demand something new or different? Is it because we think people, situations and even life are treating us unfairly or cruelly? Furthermore, there is also an unquenchable need to search for something, anything that might satisfy the unhappiness that seems to thrive on our discontentment like a parasite.
