Humility Can Bring out the Best In Each of Us

My experience with education in the formative years of my life lacked real achievement. So when I say I graduated from high school and was unprepared for life, that’s where I was. I had to find a way to overcome the limitation in my own way. That realization was the key for me. I had to figure it out for myself. The thing that worked for me was an attitude of humility. Humility—the quality of being free of arrogance or pride!

Humility changes the dynamics of any situation in a way that minimizes oneself so that you can get the good out of it. One of love’s biggest sacrifices is acknowledging the reality that you could be taken advantage of and in spite of that possibility, you still do it.

The person opposing you, for example, could appear to be the victor—and that’s the sacrifice necessary to love. With humility, the situation can be neutralized in a way that benefits all.

No one can “take” something that’s been given to them. The only thing that you can do is to know yourself enough to understand the reason people want to take advantage of or try to hurt or harm you. There’s only one reason: They don’t know how to love. They’re trying to protect something they don’t even own, and they’re trying to take advantage of something that’s not theirs to take.

Fearing people’s opinion or thoughts isn’t the answer, however. Love allows you to be open, to humble yourself. It requires that you be secure in who you are.

Humility has allowed me, the kid who struggled to retain words and sentences in school, the kid who threw tables and chairs and tried to deflect and hide from his problems, to put his truth into writing and share it with the world because I don’t want anybody to feel the way I felt.
