I found out early that you can throw yourself away, missing what you've lost.
Our entire society's based on discontent: people wanting more and more and more, being constantly dissatisfied with their homes, their bodies, their decor, their clothes, eveything. Taking it for granted that that's the whole point if life, never to be satisfied. If you're perfectly happy with what you've got--specially if what you've got isn't all that spectacular--then you're dangerous. You're breaking all the rules, you're undermining the sacred economy, you're challenging every assumption that society's built on.
