Dissatisfaction?

Being dissatisfied is an easy trick. Anyone can do it! That is the reason why many people are seen walking around with a dissatisfied appearance. One is dissatisfied and does not want to do anything about it. So one remains dissatisfied.

The challenge is to present a writing that is well-founded so that it makes the reader think instead of finding yet another confirmation of his / her dissatisfaction in what you write. The challenge lies in ...

Are you up to the challenge?
