For some reason the word "deserves" make me recoil. It feels so harsh whether used positively or negatively. If I deserve something for some reason, then that means someone else is undeserving. Maybe I/we deserve something, maybe we have entitlements, but I find it is irrelevant and just makes me feel agitated if reality doesn't align with expectations. I guess I try to find the reward in the moment of doing. That way I guess one can get what they deserve without expectations in a way?

As an ENTJ, I have gone too many times into this idea of a binary answer to questions like this. The only way to really answer this question is in a non-linear way. I've tried thousands upon thousands of times to answer questions that involve matters of the heart and it is not possible, for me, or anyone for that matter.
So here is a lovely song for you that basically encapsulates the spirit of any possible response what so ever...

"i shut the door and in the morning

Olemn slammed his hammer and from the sparks on the metal of his anvil came the spheres of the heavens.
Sayrah blew life into the spheres and they moved. From her wheel she weaved the names of people in to mystery.
I have this little conversation that happens in my head often. When I'm disappointed, especially about not getting something that I think will make me happy, I think, "I deserve it!". It's a sub-verbal almost subconscious thought, and enneagram has my number, it's because I think I suffered for it. My response to myself is, "Qlip, pray you don't get everything you deserve."
Then I get all philosophical and wonder what it is that I deserve, that all people deserve. I think we all deserve respect as a living thing, which involves things like the right to food/shelter, etc and a chance to seek fulfillment.
This is an open ended question, interpret it any way you like. What do you feel you deserve?
Sex. Lots and lots of sex. At least four times a day, sometimes five, every day.
I deserve it to make up for everything I have unjustly suffered in my life to date. It is about time the world gave me something back. A beautiful woman caressing my genitalia to orgasm between her legs would be a start.
