Read an internet post recently which stated that being humble isn’t soft or meek.
To be humble is a choice. It always calls for taking a steeper path. A path which initially calls for deferring gratification for the sake of others.
Deferring gratification calls for will. To seek to understand more calls for courage. It’s patience rather than impulse.
All in all, humility is a pathway to toughness and resilience. Here are some ways humility is expressed.
I can look back over the week and remember times I behaved counter to the ideas above. In each case, I was taking the easy way. Sometimes, the easy way had consequences that weren’t desired.
Strive to choose humbly when confronted. It brings satisfaction rather than regret.
