On my more pessimistic days (so, pretty much everyday), I like to remind myself that no matter how hard I try, I will never be truly happy. It's just highly unlikely that I, or anyone else for that matter, would be able to obtain that state of pure satisfaction where everything in life turns out perfect. We're human beings; perfection doesn't exist. We take things for granted. Some of us can't go for a day without complaining about something, anything, everything.
This is inevitable, and not necessarily a bad thing. Even experts have trouble coming up with the best solutions to solving problems - oftentimes they settle on one way, carry it out, only to find a better method afterwards. I think it's beneficial that as we step forward, we also take the time to look back and recognize that it's all about perspective. We should not be so easily satisfied with ourselves - in fact, we have to be harsh critics so as to constantly strive for improvement. We should be cognizant of the fact that nothing is perfect.
This came to my attention when I was asked whether I believed there is that one right person out there for us.

How do we know when we meet "the one"? Chances are, there is probably someone out there that is a better match for you than anyone else, and you will never meet them. But, we eventually want to settle. How do we know when to stop looking?
