Entitlement is a word the expresses expectation. Listen to the news and you will hear story after story of expectation. We hear the exact opposite of this request by John F Kennedy.
The statement asks you to consider yourself as a saviour, a hero, a person in a position to help.
Whether you are a hero or a victim or saviour depends on what you choose to consider.
When we choose to believe what we have is not enough, or not good enough, we become victims.we look for someone to make it right - the saviour.
When we rally against the government, take people to court, fight for justice, we become the saviour, or hero, taking down the perpetrator.
So what do we become when we look at all the things we have with gratitude and we consider the perspectives of others with empathy and curiosity?
Content. Kind. Wise.
Free from expectation. Free from a sense of entitlement. Free of suffering.
You might consider it.
