In life if you are a successful person or the person that everyone depends on, there is something that I must warn you about. This something is called “The Attitude of Entitlement.”
What is the attitude of entitlement? It is the belief that someone owes you something or that you are entitled to certain perks, be it financial perks, material perks, or even sexual perks. This attitude is often seen in people that are teenagers, employees, or even some family members. With the attitude of entitlement comes the “you owe me,” or the constant asking or this or that.
I recently dealt with this in my last relationship. I was dating a grown ass 24 year old brat. He felt that since I was his lover and that he had fallen on hard times, that I was to pay all of his bills and take care of the mess that his ass had gotten himself into. There comes a point in which you have to say “no,” in order to get the person with the Attitude of Entitlement to take responsibility for their own actions.
Sometimes you have to tell family members, especially those who feel that you owe them because they pushed you to a successful point. There is nothing wrong with showing gratitude, but don’t allow them to make you feel like you owe them. IF they pushed you it should’ve been done out of the goodness of their heart and not out of the attitude of “I want something back,”
In short I just want to say to the attitude of entitlement, “Bitch, KISS MY ASS!!!”
