Nobody owes you anything!

Let me say something I think is important.

Elderly people in particular, because they're fond of giving homilies, need to realise this:

Age doesn't confer you with a right over people's lives.

People determine who they deem fit to accord rights over their lives to; Age doesn't award you a perquisite to this.

Whenever you offer someone an advise, the person is at his/her volition to adhere to your advise. It's not your prerogative to determine that.

You don't have any right over another person's life.

If someone else willingly submits to your choices regarding his/her life, it's a privilege, not a right.

The apparent truth is, you can't claim such privilege from someone you didn't birth, you don't pay bills for, or, you don't add any value to.

You don't see someone, and then think because you're older, you're entitled to choke them with your decisions.

Please, don't move around with such entitlement mentality, this is 2018. Nobody owes you shit.

Let's all learn to respect our boundaries.

Your exclusive right to a decision ends with you.


Every once in a while I have to sit down and listen to that Beatles song at full volume.

I, I, Me, Me, Mine

"All through the day
I me mine, I me mine, I me mine
All through the night
I me mine, I me mine, I me mine
No one's frightened of saying it
Everyone's playing it
Flowing out freely divine
All through the day....

I, I, Me, Me, Mine"

Full Mode Sarcasm

You have such precise thoughts, Entitlement mentality will surely lead to so many future disappointments.

Yea bro. It will. thanks for your remark.

It seems like this is the age of acknowledgment of how much entitlement there is in the world...

Lmao. Yea it is. Entitlement mentality infuriates me.

this for sure. Definitely agree. As a half-Korean, I always hated how in K-dramas the elders always acted like they had final say over the younger people's lives. Even if you are their parent, if they're 33 they can make their own decisions! Something I've struggled with as well, trying not to feel guilty for not following someone's advice. Thanks for sharing! Glad to know I'm not the only one who feels this lol

Lol. Thank you for reading, and thank you for sharing your thoughts. Never feel guilty for not following someone's advice, you don't owe anyone anything.
