Nabila Aziz Siddiqui Posted almost 2 years ago Why are humans never content? Stimulating question, Zac. I would say because the world we are born in is designed that way, offering us a new opportunity to expand and grow at every step. Being content is a good thing but 'not being content' makes you go for more, which is also a good thing as long as it is making a positive impact on our life and not taking the form of greed. At some point in their life, one has to find their state of content. Happy are those who find it early in life though we all know that is rare.
