“One of the biggest challenges with this entitlement mentality is that you begin to put yourself at the mercy of other individuals, organizations, and/or institutions”
While growing up as a child, l had this belief of being treated as a princess, marrying a guy that will give me certain amount of joy, expecting my parents to meet certain needs, having friends who would voluntarily push me to fulfil my desires and so on and so forth.
The list was actually endless but as l grew into a young lady , l came to the realization that people may provide some of those needs but not to the point of satisfaction.
I was devastated when l found that l had to do the work myself, get all l wanted in life myself and the harder tasks in my life was all signed up in my name. The statement that terrified me most was when l became aware of my destiny being in my own hands and not in other people’s.
I developed the habit in looking at people to feel beautiful, waiting for their speech to be strong and courageous. I felt people owed me a whole lot even though l did not earn most of these kind gestures. In the process, l became weak and lazy. I believed l had time to wait for people to be my rescue.
It was a whole lot of baggage but l solely believed in Covenant helpers, trusting God to do all of those necessary things in my life while waiting without doing nothing. I actually prayed for grace and nothing seemed to work and at this point frustration tripled and l became the sole victim of my nightmares.
However, with time l have come to the acknowledgement that Nobody is willing to help you until you get up to let go of that brokenness in your life yourself, Nobody is coming to rescue you until you give them a clue that you will get up to be your own rescue. When you get up and do what you have to do, bunch of helpers may start entering into your life to help out. Let me put it in simplest terms… “Go Out and Get It done”
Gradually l am coming to this terms that l owe myself what l desire in life and l have to be willing to Go Out There and Get it in abundant. When we think that people owe us something, we instantly limit ourselves to little opportunities and abundance that life provides.
Subscribing to a thought of hoping on people to get you started, make you miss some hidden potentials or abilities you can use to achieve outstanding goals. It also set you apart from learning, expanding and creating new things in life. If there is any problem in your life, family, career, relationship, Go Out and Fix lt.
