Is the grass greener on the other side?

“The grass is always greener on the other side,” the old saying goes, implying that we may never be satisfied with our current situation. Is that actually true?


Instead of wondering what could be better, we suggest doing the opposite: view your relationship with rose-colored glasses.

Try to imbue as much positivity into your relationship as you can, which helps to form what we call the positive perspective. Cherish your partner and what you both have together. That kind of upbeat view on things will make handling any negativity in your relationship much easier.

That doesn’t mean you won’t experience tough times between you and your partner, but if you remind yourself of what you have that’s good, that will help you not to get hung up on the tough stuff.

Remember, the grass isn’t greener somewhere else. The grass is greener where you water it.

Relationships are all around us, relationships with others not only intimately.

Trained as a psychotherapist I’ve come to find a  more fulfilling approach to helping others through the practice of  “Transformational  Life Coaching”. Online, telephone or in person.
