Humility is often regarded as an unfavorable or disadvantageous quality, constantly scrutinized in our power-driven society. Being in recovery has taught me that is a false conception. I’ve learned that having humility is realizing that I do not have all the answers and to remain teachable. I’ve learned having humility is recognizing my strengths and my weaknesses as well learning how to improve these weaknesses and defects by acknowledging and appreciating other people’s strengths and talents. Allowing myself to remain teachable. Being of service and helping others without expecting anything in return is a great starting point to practice humility. This has allowed me to have a greater sense of integrity and acceptance, which has developed and strengthened relationships. Remember, humility is not a bad trait to have. The concept of humility has been misconstrued. It’s a trait that everyone should possess in order to build self-esteem, self worth, and healthier, more rewarding relationships.
