Can depression stem out of feeling of entitlement ?

Among other things, can feeling entitled to things (then not working hard or feeling demotivated and hence not getting results) also cause depression ?

    You should watch Jordan Peterson, shows you how men grew up needing and taught we need this more than women. If your a women, it might still help since is lectures can be applied to anyone

      That guy is a dumb conservative men’s rights proponent masquerading as an intellectual. His popularity speaks to the idiocy of the masses.

      Jordan Peterson? I personally don’t enjoy listening to him, but you are heavily biased if you don’t think he’s intelligent.

      Did I say that. Part of his appeal is obviously that he speaks more intelligently than the average MAGA tard, giving false credence to what he says.

      You called him “dumb.”

      Yup. Beyond the intellectual language he and his views are straight up dumb.

      I don’t agree with Peterson when it comes to politics. His “intellectual” commentary on politics comes off as cold and over the top.

      But his stance on metaphysics, and philosophical understanding of purpose and meaning is commendable. He speaks of many things that is essential for human living. Concepts suchs as owning up and taking responsibility are basic and sound borderline uninventive. But great swaths of people who are struggling day in and day out have to be reminded of these core ideals. He has helped many people navigate tough times in their lives.

      Not a JP fanboy but I’m being non-biased and giving credit where it’s due.

      I am blind to something and you are too.
      He's a great example of how any intelligent person can justify even the most wrong views. State facts, state opions- if you are smart enough you should be able to draw a curve between them somehow!
      After carefully listening to him, could spot so many holes in reasoning, most of them coming from conservative priors or bias.

      What is a good example of something that JP states that is a wrong view?

    That's an interesting question. Pretty reflective. I am not a counselor but I would say yes that can happen if a person genuinely thinks that they are going to get something or are entitled to something then they don't get it , I would think that at the very least there is disappointment but I would think that it would depend upon how much said person has had to handle disappointments.

    Word definition matters here, but I’ve always believed unhappiness is when expectations don’t match reality. So, yes.

      I think depression is different than unhappiness. I heard the best way to describe depression is indifference.

      I’ve always found people who are depressed are unhappy for a long period of time.

    Possibly. If you think you are entitled to something and you don’t receive it, you could feel depressed unless you do something to fix it. This could in fact be one of the root causes of depression.
