Yes very true this reminds me of a story of a person who preferred to be blind by one eye because his neighbours would lose two eyes we are not satisfied with that we have rather we compare ourselves with others ignoring the fact that everyone is born with different destiny some ppl lives in palaces and some in huts it all depends on your destiny

The grass on the other side is alwys green. What we have is probably what the other person desires to have. being happy is a state of mind. Its being greatful and accepting what ha sbeen bestowed on you

There is a very thin line between satisfaction and being content....both make you happy...you have to decide because one does not contain envy other does.
