Should I feel Guilty?

So I have been thinking lately a lot about work and the time I request off from work and the question keeps coming up; Should I feel guilty for requesting a lot of time off? and by a lot I mean 2-3 weekends a year which is approx 12/365 days.
The biggest thing is how close together some of the time off is. Like BLFC was this May, RMFC is in August and I'm thinking about doing the Furry Cruise in November.
I keep being told by another Manager I work with that I take a lot of time off, but I see it as, Why do we work? So we can earn money to pay bills like rent, car, and food and with what's left over to enjoy life rather than just going through the every day motions of eat, work, sleep.
So should I feel bad for taking as much time off as I want to providing I am financially stable to do so? Or should I listen to my Manager and take it easy and not ask for as much time off?
(Keep in mind the person I request time off from has said nothing to me about my requests)
