With 飽 you can complain that you’re tired of things, including “the monotony of daily life.” Of course, someone may reply, “I’m getting sick of hearing you complain,” again using 飽. It’s not all negative; this kanji enables you to say, “His unceasing efforts to achieve success have made him what he is today.” See why it takes courage to lose interest and why we crave change after 7 years.
