entitlement

label: still here — CV @ 12:59 PM

“Entitlement –  the belief that one is inherently deserving of privileges or special treatment.”

Declarations of love to you do not entitle you to love and understanding. Because you sacrificed a little or a lot, does not mean you deserve something in return. Common understandings and overall customs do not justify. Just because you did something, does not entitle you to something in return.

Entitlement raises expectations and those are prone to disappointment.

There have been two times in my life, when I strongly felt entitled to something and both times the outcomes were catastrophic. Arutu and Him. With both at one point in the relationship I felt like I am entitled to some things and the failure to achieve those broke everything. He is right, I was arrogant thinking that I deserved something and acted hurt when I didn’t get it.

I think I finally caught a behaviour pattern in my relationships, that I haven’t changed yet. I hope I am wiser in the next relationship (if there ever will be one).

No impressions (interesting why?)
