Entitlement Overshadows Gratitude

In our relationships, having a sense of entitlement will overshadow gratitude. We start to expect things from people close to us, whether it’s commitment, trust, honesty or material things or gifts which people give us, we lose that feeling of gratitude for what our loved ones give us.

We start taking each other for granted, expecting that the other people in our lives will always be there for us. Aren’t we always there for them? Shouldn’t these feelings be reciprocal? Don’t we deserve at least that much?

These feelings of entitlement can often destroy relationships.

We frustrate ourselves by always expecting people in our lives  to be there for us when we expect them to be there.

We should replace feelings of entitlement with feelings of gratitude and mutual respect. When we feel entitled, we tend to dominate our partners and coerce them to do our bidding. However, since we can’t express our gratitude and sense of entitlement at the same time, we should lose sight of our egos and choose gratitude!

Lose the ego. Choose gratitude!
