i often hear people say (and think myself) that they deserve something. but the question is – why do we deserve things at all? and compared to who? is this word just a relic from religion – a reminder of the categories hell/heaven? or is it a disguised form of presumption?
what we deserve in life is perhaps the same thing as what we expect of life?
and isn’t it kind of amazing to be alive at all, considering the odds?
