We live in an entitled world.
A world where we are told we need holidays, we need a new car, we need the latest mobile phone, we need to know what our friends are doing every minute of every day, we need the new 3-D televisions or we need the newest iwhatever.
Since when did these become things we needed? If I remember correctly, in order to survive, all we really need are food, water and shelter. But now, because we think we need more than this…and we keep needing more and more…resulting in being more unhappy than ever. Seriously, are we ever happy with the things we have? After all, there’s a new TV or a new mobile phone or a new laptop every minute!!!
If only we realised that we don’t need any of the above to survive but rather just want them because we are entitled, I wonder how many mental health problems we could avoid.
Until next time,
