This statement doesn't only refer to relationships, but I believe it refers to life in general. Is the grass really greener on the other side of the fence? Yes I believe sometimes it is, but also, most times it's not. Why? Because unfortunately we focus too much on how green the grass is and not so much on what it took for the grass to maintain it's vibrate, lush, green hue. Work is what it took, or the appearance of a greener grass is fake.
Wanting better is not a bad thing, it's what motivates us to push harder to achieve our goals to live that happy carefree life. However if your desire for something different is based on a false sense of reality you are definitely setting yourself up for great disappointments.
You don't like your job, the pay isn't great, however that management position sure looks easy and the pay is better. Hmmm, the reality, that management position comes with longer hours and more stress. If you can handle that, go for it, but don't be fooled into thinking it would be better than the position you correctly have if your want for it is only based on money.
You are tired of renting and everyone that owns their own home seem to be living it up. I bet there are many homeowners that would trade places with you in a heartbeat. Don't get me wrong, owning your own home is a wonderful investment, but you have to realize it comes with huge responsibilities. Making sure your mortgage is paid on time; if something breaks - you my friend have to fix it. Paying your property taxes or homeowners association fees are not an option. And the list goes on and on. So be wise about your desire to purchase before you get into it and find out you weren't ready.
The relationship you've been in for a year or more isn't working out exactly as you'd imagined, you think maybe being with so and so would be better than the person you're currently in a relationship with. Again, don't be fooled. Don't go into relationships with fairy tale ideas of what things should be like. No two relationships are alike because the individuals are different people with different personalities, etc. What makes a relationship work is work. Trust, open communication, love, loyalty and so forth has to be there. Everyday is not going to be lovey-dovey, you're not always going to be happy, however you must know that will be the case in any relationship. So don't jump ship for the wrong reasons only to find your self right back where you started.
Is the grass really greener on the other side of the fence? Be sure before you make that move.
