What do you feel entitled to and why?

Daniel S asked on facebook – What do you feel entitled to and why?
(This is an earnest inquiry.)

[ 18/10/20 ]

I don’t feel entitled to anything.

There are many things that seem to be required for my long term survival.

There are many things that need to be avoided if we are to survive long term.

I am certainly aware of how privilaged I am, being debt free, living in reasonable security in a beautiful place. I don’t feel entitled to that. I appreciate it.

The very idea of entitlement seems to be a dangerous idea, that is unlikely to end well in the long term.
