In life you need food & shelter and when you have this, half of your problem is already gone.  The other half, $$.  If you're missing 1 of the 3 stresses come.  The rest, are minor issues.  Life is beautiful and it is truly how you make it.

My question was more philosophical than physical... but here are my observations.

Single people wishes they were married or with someone, then once they are married or attached, their husband/wife/partner becomes a burden to them. Now they feel trapped because they have to dedicate their time, money, and attention to a single individual, having to answer to him/her. One solution creates another problem.

You need to lose weight, so you buy a gym membership and joins a health club. Now that you have a gym membership, you have to allocate time to go to the health club which takes you away from time with your family, time from your hobbies or time from friends. One solution creates another problem.

Your truck just die and you buy a new Tundra. Well, now you have a huge monthly car payment, Insurance just jumped 20% and your gas budget jumped 50%. You're starting to wonder if you will make ends meet. One solution creates another problem.

I can go on and on...

No, because it’s all in perspective.

Clearly put that we all can relate. 

You have income rushing in but when you pay your bills, more bills are stacking behind it. 

It is like different bills are coming out of nowhere to foil your game plan.

Ditto...depend s on the individual and his/her "perspective".

I create my own problems.

Thanks everyone for your input... My goal was to get people thinking and as some of you pointed out, it is really mostly about perspective. 

Generally speaking, I think Human Beings, at least in my view, are never ever happy with what they have, NOTHING is ever enough. Deep down inside, if you were to win the Lottery, wouldn't you rather win 1 million dollars as opposed to just 100k, if given the choice. And then wouldn't you rather win 10 million rather than just 1 million? And again, if given a choice would you rather win 100 million rather than 10 million?

My buddy, who's only 28, and his wife just got divorced after being married 5 years. They have a child together... both he and his ex-wife were always arguing and fighting. Everytime we talk, it was about him wanting out of his marriage and how he hated being married. Well, now, 6 months later and all he wants to talk about is how lonely he is and how he wants to go overseas to meet someone.

It's a vicious loopback.

first part, true, second, not always. it's how you resolve your issues and prevent them from happening again. but everyone's situation is different depnding on their life's circumstances. some things are out of our control..they say its all in the mind, but that's not always true...when you have to take a dump bad, your mind won't be tricked..haha problems will eventually arise in our lives. nobody escapes health issues and the wear and tear in our mind and body as we get older..haha

You are a pessimist. You think of problems or that everything is a problem.

Optimists are just the opposite: they think of problems as either solutions or opportunities only. Every problem is an opportunity for something.

“Life is essentially an endless series of problems. The solution to one problem is merely the creation of another.”

I understand what you are trying to say.  And yes, like others pointed out, it's a matter of perception.  We can be in a huge hole of a mess, but even in that moment we can convince ourselves that things are temporary and that the problems aren't as huge, etc.  How we see things really depends on our own perception of the situation.  Do you see your life and/or your problems as cup half full or cup half empty, etc.

But, I understand, too, that human beings are generally never satisfied.  We aim to reach a certain level in life and when we finally reach it, we're like, "uhhh, I think I want more than this, maybe."  Most of us can never be fully satisfied.  Even the super rich and wealthy are probably not fully satisfied, because they may have money but they may be lacking in family, love, happiness, etc.

There are sayings: "Be happy with what you have" and "Make the most of what you have."  There are reasons for these sayings.
