Do you recognize entitlement in your self?
Â Sense of Entitlement SymptomsÂ Â
Sure you can get mad at the President for being so entitled, but what if we don’t recognize the symptoms in ourselves.Â Your life right now are the symptoms: are you happy, do you have an easy time, does prosperity flow, do you have long term relationships, have you lost a lot of people along the way?
https://lonerwolf.com/sense-of-entitlement/Â Â By now you may be wondering: doÂ IÂ have a sense of entitlement?Â Like anything in life there is a spectrum, and while you may not be a full-blown narcissist or have a borderline personality disorder, you may exhibit a certain level of selfishness that makes other peopleâ€™s lives hard.Â If you have a sense of entitlement, symptoms include the following:
1.Â You impose unrealistic demands on your family, children, friends, acquaintances, lovers, employees, and/or employers.
2.Â Â You tend to feel sorry for yourself if things donâ€™t work out the way you wanted (self-pity), and openly advertise this in melodramatic, attention-seeking ways.
3.Â Â People have called you a â€śbullyâ€ť, â€śmanipulativeâ€ť, â€śruthlessâ€ť, â€śegotisticalâ€ť, â€śvainâ€ť, or a â€śliarâ€ť.
4.Â Â You believe that you deserve happiness and go to great, sometimes extreme lengths to ensure that happens, often at the expense of others.
5.Â Â You punish people when they donâ€™t do what you want either passively (e.g. silent treatment, gossiping, spreading rumors) or aggressively (e.g. shouting, verbally/physically abusing).
6.Â In order to â€śsucceedâ€ť in life, you believe in going to any lengths.
7.Â Â You constantly see other people as competition or â€śthreatsâ€ť.
8.Â Â You tend to exhibit many double-standards in the way you behave/interact with other people, e.g.Â I can be late and forget my duties and commitments, but YOU canâ€™t; I can treat myself, but YOU canâ€™t; I can abuse or disrespect you, but YOU canâ€™t to ME.
9.Â You tend toÂ takeÂ more than give in friendships and relationships.
10.Â Â You tend to look out for yourself, your needs and desires more than anyone else almost 100% of the time.
11.Â Â You have a hard time negotiating or compromising.
12.Â Â You have a deep-seated conviction that you have priority and should always come first, even at the expense of stepping on others.
13.Â People always seem to be offended or upset by what you do or say.

16.Â Â You like to assert your dominance or superiority over other people, finding it second nature.
