What are you or I entitled to? Freedom? Happiness? Money? Love? Fairness? 

What about hard work, struggle, and many failures? Are you entitled to that? No, that can’t be? How could an amazing being be entitled to such things? Maybe it’s better if we are not entitled to anything? 

Nobody is or was entitled to slavery or freedom, yet the former slaves, those unrelenting soldiers, fought for it even to death. 

Nobody is entitled to happiness, not even an emperor or a king. Just ask Marcus Aurelius. His journal is filled with the pains and struggles he faced, and that does not have to be a bad thing. When you are born, crying means you are alive. 

Nobody is entitled to money or riches, unless you have an inheritance, but if you save and invest you might be entitled to more money, or maybe your family might be. 

So are we entitled or not? In the end, I’d rather fight, cry, and be patient than be entitled for who is anyway.
