Why we want what we can’t have and take for granted what we do have

There once were two lovebirds that loved each other more than anything in the world. They spent each waking moment with each other and even whilst they slept they were in each others dreams. Soon the Goddess of Love heard about this magnificent love which stood stronger than any love she had created. She became jealous and decided to teach the two lovebirds a lesson. She separated the two from their nest with a strong wind and then wove a spell that made the female lovebird nearsighted and the male lovebird farsighted. Now when the male lovebird is far away from his love he notices her from afar and misses her and seeks her out while she grows idle and restless. When he gets close enough she becomes attached again and tries to keep him close but then he doesn’t see her in the same way so he flies away only to turn around and fall in love again.
