Lowered Expectations

This job doesn’t pay well but I have a great profile.
The job pays really well but the work is crap.

I am marrying this great guy who I don’t really love.

I bought these shoes on sale, yeah I know it’s so last year!!

Everywhere an endless ocean of people seem to be compromising with what they have and what they can have. The wait for the perfect someone/something is constantly punctuated with a lot of compromises.

How does one tackle people with suppressed desires and consequential lowered expectations? Do these people really ever get back to their normal selves? Or do they start believing that what they have is what they always wanted?

What would you do if you had to choose? Would you chuck the offer looking for the dream or postpone the dream in exchange for its fraction?
