Inspired by a red link in Lonely Rich Kid. It's the idea that writers cannot write about beings who are more fortunate than they are, without being unhappy. It should be noted that this phase is often used improperly. The phase actually refers to people who try to justify who they should be happy to not get what they initially wanted.
