He resents his benefactor, yet takes every advantage of him. Ingratitude is the word but he sees it as someone showing off when a benefit given requires any inconvenience on his part. Pointing out every fault, flaw and misspoken word on another’s part, that person is demonized as a distraction from his own faults, flaws and ill-spoken words. Sometimes benefactors behave badly, but mostly they benefit. Takers stay in the shadows and only expose their bad behavior when they take a reprehensible position as their greed is exposed.
He is dissatisfied because all of his shenanigans to take more than he deserves from those he should be taking care of isn’t fulfilling. He will never have enough. Only the knowledge that he has taken too much will enlighten him. So, not hiding from the ones he should be showering with benefits, stepping up and out to provide benefits so that he doesn’t need a benefactor, becoming the man he was intended to be, being generous when he has nothing to give, are the things that are missing in his life.
The things he selfishly keeps for himself become valueless. In time, he will probably have more, but it will not be enough. In time, he will lose something more precious than the things he has acquired through stealth. One day he will be scared of dying among many possessions and no one to love. The wife and children he had to love and didn’t will be the lost opportunity that gives him the hollow feeling of loss, even with them physically present. Happiness will elude him even as he pursues it through accumulation and separation. As the growing discrepancy between his take and his give widens, so will his dissatisfaction and others disappointment.
