Discontentment in life

ETERNAL PEACE by honeytech

There should be more to life than there is.

We don't talk about it, but our discontentment with life shows: we grumble, get angry at small things, eat too much, drink too much, drive too fast . . .We can blame ourselves or we can blame others. It really doesn't matter; it doesn't change anything. We want things to be better - we may even want ourselves to be better - but we can't seem to make it happen. We have conflicting desires within ourselves, so that we don't do the things we want to do - much less the things we think we should do. We mess up our relationships, even though that's not our intention.We find God irrelevant to our lives, but something in us wants to believe anyway. We should explores the roots of our discontentment with our lives, with other people, and with ourselves. It considers the possibility that there can be more to life: more meaning, more freedom, more joy. And provides a web of ideas to explore rather than a single path to follow because each person's way of thinking is unique.
