One more: privilege can be hard to hear about if you feel your life has been difficult and you’ve worked hard to get where they are and being told they had it easy doesn’t go down well. Especially for white cis men who aren’t as far along as they wish they were, and are looking for any excuse other than it might be them.

That you feel your life has been a slog and you aren't living your dream life and everyone is telling you you’ve got privilege: that can be a bitter pill.
