sometimes it depends on how much 1 expects out of life.
if 1 is struggling jus 2 meet basic financial commitment den lo.
single ppl like me get no sympathy cos i got no (non at d moment) mouth 2 feed. den if i got no $$ i cant even get a date...
i've read her post. i dun mind if i m well compensated loh, but tt not d case. being bored is a state of mind. w/ all d current technology available locally, 1 can oni fault 1self. its all in d attitude- d willingness 2 do things outside our comfort zone. S'pore has more 2 offer if 1 tries 2 find, attempt 2 appreciate things. dun always find excuses, if i'm always infront of my PC i could go out n explore Sg on foot, 4 eg.
i guess d prospect of being rediculed by frds is a major concern 4 most ppl? most ppl prefer d "old" you, to a "brand new" you. like a mental trap....
Happiness? A State of Mind rather.
If one is perpetually depressed, he can be living in Bhutan for goodness sake and still plagued with demons of ideals and wondering if it is 'democratic' for Bhutan to be so 'closed' and ruled by a 'royal elite' that doesn't appear to have any elections.
Quoting an observation on the World Happiness Index that was carried out on several nations, its found that Citizens of so-called '3rd World Countries' score higher on the happiness index than most developed countries, including Singapore.
Strange? Not exactly. Perhaps materialism and the unconscious obsession with the word 'success' is the culprit to make everyone lose the contentment spirit that is often seen in developed countries as an 'excuse for laziness'.
"Wonders of the Human Mind. Unfathomable to the highest degree."
I don't believe in "positive thinking".
If you are miserable, you are.
No amount of positive thinking will change that.
Back to topic.
Most people don't have the luxury of choice which country they wish to live in.
Most just take the lows with the highs and adapt if they can.
There will be trade-offs even if you have the choice.
