Jealous Perspectives

So, you’ve heard the saying, “The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.” So, here’s my question: Is that true or false? Is the grass always greener over there? My answer might surprise you, but hopefully it will give us all something to think about.

The answer is: TRUE! The grass IS ALWAYS greener on the other side of the fence.

If you’re looking down at grass you see grass with dirt around it. You’re seeing from a perspective where the blade is not getting its best showing. However if you change the angle at which you are viewing the grass, perhaps from the other side of the fence, you’ll notice that you don’t see much dirt and you see the full side of the blade of grass. Things are definitely greener from this angle. Now if you walk over and stand on the greener grass you were looking at, then look back at where you were standing before, now that grass looks greener. It’s all a matter of perspective. You may be jealous of someone, but you might not be if you could see the dirt in their life that they put up with daily. You were given the perspective you have so you can change things that need to be changed, not so you could be jealous of someone you think is better off than you.
