I’m confused.

When you say “don’t take something for granted” how do these words mean that you’re not appreciating something and should be?

When something is “granted” it’s given to me.  It’s granted to me.

Maybe I’m just tired, but it’s been a couple of days of pondering and I still can’t figure out how anyone came up with this sentence to mean you’re not valuing something that you should be valuing.

This is really hurting my brain.

Are you with me?  I mean think about it.

If I say to you “don’t take your home for granted” isn’t your home already granted to you? 

I’ve been trying to think of a better sentence to replace this cockamamie one that is challenging my logical brain.

And I can’t.

Feel free to share any other ways to express “taking something for granted” that doesn’t have the word “granted” in it!

Oh wait. I think I got it.

Nope.  The thing I think I got doesn’t work.

Ok, so feel free to help me understand how this sentence, this phrase, makes any sense at all…:)

I’m going to bed.
