If you look around, everyone is searching for something. Everyone wants more and is not content with the lives they are living. Nearly everyone is unhappy with the majority of their life. They might find happiness briefly, but in the long term they/we are always in the pursuit of happiness.
Our world is full of hatred, anger and impatience. Our society might be moving in the wrong direction. We need to rethink our lives and look at the bigger picture. We are all the same species, so our ultimate goal in life is to (well reproduce, but) work together and progress as a species. Right now it seems like everything is a competition and we are working against many other subdivisions of our same species.(such as different religions)
