Earning A Place In The Tribe, by James Greenshields
Deservability, or entitlement mentality is crippling relationship, families and society in general
It’s the thing that says “That happened therefore I’m entitled to this …..”
It comes in many forms:
- You’ve given it to me before so I want it again.
- That has happened to me so I deserve this.
- By virtue of my position I am entitled to this.
We get outraged by a child coming up to us and just expecting a hand out; yet we’ll turn around and just expect to be given something because of what we’ve done or who we are.
