We tend to believe that we earn what we get in the world. That belief can lead to a mentality of entitlement. The belief that we deserve the privileges and special treatment given to us in the past.
Beware… that is a toxic attitude. It can lead you to complacency and continual outrage when the world fails to give us the special treatment that we feel we deserve.
What value does entitlement hold? I can’t think of much. Perhaps, it might cause you to advocate for yourself? Under the right circumstances, that would be valuable. However, for the most part, it is toxic.
Instead, I will take a different path. I will work to re-earn everything that I get each day. That makes me feel much more confident.
Just my opinion. What do you think? Let me know in the comments.
