Most relationships these days suffer from this current issue known as Self-entitlement. This is when an individual perceives themselves as deserving of unearned privileges.
These are the people who believe life owes them something; a reward, a measure of success, a particular standard of living among many other mundane things.
To be on the safe side, here are three common points to be on the lookout for:
Having The “Me Before You” Reasoning
A sense of entitlement brings with it an inflexible attitude. There is a lack of understanding of others’ needs and certain social situations, accompanied by an expectation that you should be far more interested in their life than they are in yours.
There is an exaggerated sense of self-importance accompanied by fantasies of power, beauty, and brilliance. Compromises that require one to meet others halfway don’t exist in the world of the entitled. Everyone else is either competition – threatening their success – or irrelevant.

While being unyielding to the requests of others, self-entitled individuals make unrealistic demands, oblivious that their happiness comes at another’s expense.
Ungrateful attitudes are often directed at you after you have performed a good deed for them. You might continuously change your routine to accommodate their plans, for instance, but they never offer to return the favor, even when you need it. Plus, they often appear oblivious to the difficulty they have caused you.
The feeling of Justified Rage
The self-entitled are no newcomers to confrontation. Often known for fits of rage exceeding any anger a toddler may throw, their ruthless, egotistical stance allows them to believe this is justified.
Their anger can simmer passively too; rolled eyes signal their dishonor for those around them. Seething negativity is displayed in cynical and overly critical viewpoints.
