I am guilty of this sometimes. Politicians, the wealthy, even common people , we are all guilty of this. As defined by www.vocabulary.com, it is
“If someone has a sense of entitlement, that means the person believes he deserves certain privileges — and he’s arrogant about it. The term “culture of entitlement” suggests that many people now have highly unreasonable expectations about what they are entitled to. “
We ,humans, tend to act as if the whole world should stop, just to hand us over what we need. We are proud and demanding as if the stars, sun and moon will bow down to us just to please us. We sometimes do not get the point that steps and protocols should be followed in order to serve us better. We are easily agitated over small matters to the point that we transfer the same feelings to others unconsciously. We are spoiled, we are unreasonable most of the time and we are contagious.
This is the price of having a life so comfortable and relaxed. Despite that we started from nothing, we tend to somehow forget the feeling of being down there. We thought that because we worked hard for this current disposition that we have, we deserve to be treated by everyone as if we’ve already bought them, that we are the boss.
I am guilty of this and I am willing to change soon. I have to constantly remind myself that I am nothing as compared to the universe. I am a nobody therefore, I should treat everyone with respect no matter what they are.
