When I became entitled!

The degree of entitlement we are living with is insanely scary.

Entitlement ~ when you start recognizing your right in everything around you.

It’s a slow process; Unlike success, it doesn’t happens overnight, it creeps in slowly. But success plays a major role.

The initial recognition received in any noob venture creates a sense of achievement, and that sense of achievement makes you feel entitled.

Entitlement is not limited to — I deserve something, but also when we start to judge whether someone else deserves it or not.

My writing journey is running completely parallel with COVID waves. (I am not proud about it)

I started writing on LinkedIn when the first wave started, exactly a year ago.

I didn’t receive must validation; people didn’t acknowledge my existence, so I gave in. Just like COVID.

But then the second wave arrived, and I started writing again.

This time it was different, I was more consistent because my initial few posts received a bunch of validations in the form of likes, hearts, and shares.

2 months into writing I call myself a content writer! Like seriously

Not just that I even judge people on their silly motivational content, even though they have been doing that for years now.

Now I tell myself why my content is better than theirs and how I should receive all “their validations.”

Wait a minute?

Am I feeling entitled?

Never indulge in stupid introspections.

(In case, we are meeting here for the first time, I write)
