You make a very valuable point there. Everyone wants what they don't have, whereas our assets are "a given". For example, imagine anything that you could ever want. If I gave you it, some time later you wouldn't even acknowledge that you wanted it so badly. I think we all naturally "look forward" to certain things or sometimes overstate our desires, thinking that by getting that thing we'll be very happy. Yet, when we get it, although the instantaneous utility is certainly present, it tends to wear off very quickly.Don't you think, that what comes easy to you, you value less, and don't get why it is so hard for other people?
Bottom line: we should all be grateful for who we are and what we have
