We all have moments of ungratefulness. It’s just human nature. We can get so caught up in our own bubbles and concerned with our own problems, that we forget to think about and appreciate the things that our fellow human beings do for us. On the other hand, there are people out there who are generally ungrateful most of the time. Here is what distinguishes them.

1. They are never satisfied
Isn’t this just the first and foremost sign? No matter how much you do for them, they’ll always want more. They do not have a sense of gratitude and will always come around for a bigger favour. No matter how well things seem to be going for them, and how many goals they meet, targets they achieve, or things they get their hands on, they’re never happy. There’s always something else they’re chasing. They are forever setting their sights on something else.
2. They are filled with envy.
Since they are never satisfied, they will always be envious about people who seem contented with what they have.They look at the good things that others achieve or have and they wish that for themselves. They compare their life unfavorably to others and this envy consumes them so that they cannot be happy with what they have.
3. They have a major sense of entitlement
Ungrateful people feel like they deserve special treatment or recognition for something they didn’t earn. Because you are always coming to their rescue, especially in their time of need, they feel like you are expected to do so at all times.
4. They’re always asking for help from others.
Most of us tend to struggle to ask other people for help. We don’t want to put people out. But, ungrateful people, or people who aren’t thankful, will happily ask you to help them. And when you help them, they feel like they earned your help and don’t thank you for it.
5. If you can’t help them, they won’t let you forget it.
And if you genuinely can’t give them the help they’ve asked for, you won’t be allowed to forget about it in a hurry, whatever your reason. The one time you are not able to be of aid to them, they label you a bad person.
6. They don’t have time for you unless they need something from you.
You won’t find them around till it’s time for them to demand. It’s only when they need something from you that they pop up. They won’t suggest meeting up just to catch up, and they won’t text just to see how you are. They take you for granted.
I’m sure, if you think back over the last week, you’ll be able to come up with at least a handful of occasions on which you were at least a little ungrateful. It’s part of human nature, but do not make it a habit.
