In My Humble Opinion

“Humility is not thinking less of yourself, its thinking of yourself less. ~  A.C. Lewis

Be HUMBLE:  Sounds easy, right? I’m not trying to smash the Messiah complex or trying to be egotistical. When you’re doing great things, sometimes you just want to take credit for them. But we should focus on keeping our heads small and our hearts modest.

“DAMMIT,  her bragging is getting on my NERVES! Someone REALLY needs to humble her.”  We have all experienced them. Those people who simply cannot resist telling you How WONDERFUL their life is, How SMART their children are, or how SUCCESSFUL their spouse is.  And they always seem to ONE-UP you

They believe that they are better than others.  The truth is all the money in the world doesn’t make you a better person. It simply means that you have more money.  After all, money cant buy everything.  Am I Right? And to be honest now, these are the same people that cause you to duck or roll your eyes😩 at the mere sight of them heading your way!😞 

It is far more impressive when you let others discover your good qualities without your help. And while there is nothing wrong with telling people your “good news”  Sometimes we have to be careful not to cross the line between sharing our joy and rubbing someone’s nose into our good fortune.

And if you think boasting will make someone else feel that they are lacking in their own accomplishments or circumstances then you are just being SELFISH. Because humble people are quiet and meek and don’t need to brag about their accomplishments or beg others for attention to impress. They already feel confident enough in themselves and don’t wish to have the spotlight on them. 

99% of the time the reason that our dreams/visions crumble is because we open our mouth too soon to the wrong people at the wrong time. We share our dreams/visions with people who claim to be ‘friends’. The envy and low-key jealousy is enough for people to feed off or tear what  COULD OF BEEN before it even happens. So let *GOD* work everything out at the right time and on his time!

The bible says, “Humble yourself before the Lord, and HE will lift you up.”  (James 4:10)   I have learnt that the greatest people are more likely to learn, to serve, and to not think too highly of themselves. In other words. We are not who we think we are BUT what we think, we are!

People can sense genuine and authentic love and acceptance. I’m always blown away by how many people say Thank you, for a hug and a smile given.😊 Be that tiny piece in that giant puzzle. In reality life doesn’t owe us anything, we actually owe something to life. Focus on what you can give, not what you can get.

Humility begins in our hearts. It has nothing to prove, but everything to offer.😊
Blessings and Love…..

  1. I never understood the one-up thing. I mean, it makes others feel bad, and who wants to do that? Are we such a mean-spirited society that we derive pleasure from another’s discomfort? That members of society only feel OK about themselves if the people around them are feeling bad/worse? It makes no sense. I’m with you 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

  2. What a wonderful outlook! One of my favorite songs is “Humble And Kind” by Tim McGraw. The lyrics say it all: “Let yourself feel the pride but Always stay humble and kind…” Have a Blessed day 🙂 ❤

  4. There is a thin line when being too humble can interfere with potential achievements or even prevent achieving anything.
    Yes, we certainly know a lot of bragging people. I thought once as I was watching some part of a silly reality show: the only talent they had was being rich and having a lot of money which was quite frequently a result of getting married with somebody wealthy and old. Well, social media really facilitates such bragging behavior and people love to pretend being way better or being way more interesting and gifted than in reality. That’s why these who cannot create anything or find richness within themselves brag about houses they live in, foods they consume and outfits they were.

    1. @Artist Inese Poga😊Thank you for your lovely comment. I agree! Today people are ostensibly sharing what they are doing on social media and it’s clear that their personal accomplishments is a thinly veiled blurb. We should rather approach our accomplishments with a sense of sincere appreciation not a sense of entitlement. God Bless!😊


  5. I actually don’t take it personally when someone tells me that things are going wonderfully for them. I’m happy for them and that their choices have worked out well. Constant talk about self though doesn’t build relationships. So unless there is a genuine sharing of something deeper, I probably don’t spend a lot of time with them. That applies to people who boast constantly about their good fortune or wallow in self-pity. Thanks for the interesting and provocative post 🙂

    1. @johnsmithiiimxiii😊Thank you, Sir. Yes, I agree. A life well-lived is a life lived fully and without dilution. And with age comes responsibilities and new outlooks on life. Age if anything, is on our side.😊 God Bless!
