Are self-pity and entitlement the same thing? Two sides of the same coin?

I’m confused, because I read that somewhere but I’m unsure how they’re related. Help?



  1. ok so I been thinking about this as I don’t sleep lol. figured I would give my immediate response while driving lol. I would think its a perspective issue. if I self pity then I concentrate on what I do not have or can not obtain. if I feel entitlement I feel I DESERVE, but I can also feel I deserve what others would self pity about. so tecnically I could self pity through entitlement depending on what I want and what I am willing to do about it. the individual who feels entitled but isn’t and pitties him/herself could be very miserable indeed.

  2. Hmmmm. Ok, that makes sense.
