Humility

Humility does not come from debasing oneself. Humility should proceed from being fully aware of who we are, what our weaknesses and strengths are. And it comes from the willingness to place ourselves lower than others despite how big or how good we are.

That's a great definition, Bungi. I think humility is self-awareness and a desire to put others first. Maybe a generous self-awareness? Thanks for getting me thinking this a.m.

That's really thought provoking, Bungi, and the more I read it, the more true it seems.

Thanks for posting and a very happy Christmas to you and your family.
