Why spoiled kids drive me nuts…

Posted by Reid on November 24, 2007

This is an interesting article by Selwyn duke for Thanksgiving. The rich and spoiled have so much to learn, just a little reminder about what causes true happiness.

The spirit of entitlement, however, is born of just the opposite: A false sense of sanctity.  When someone lives an unexamined life, when he fancies that he has been immaculately conceived and is blind to his own faults, he will always see the glass as half empty.  Why, he has been denied his birthright, as a demigod such as himself should have the world at his feet.  He is owed this and that, and he will protest and picket and pout until he gets what he has coming.  He certainly has something coming alright.
