It's been a while I've written to you all because my space bar been acting suspect so it's making it hard to type but I'm fighting through this. So I wanted to discuss some things and share my experience and belief. You all tell me what you think.
HUMILITY - is the quality of being modest, reverential, even obsequiously submissive, and never being arrogant, contemptuous, rude or even self-aggrandizing.
When someone demonstrates the quality of not being proud or haughty, we say that person has humility or is that humbleness???
Both of these words have the same meaning. They are interchangeable.
Example 1: Instead of arguing, he showed humility when he apologized for his mistake and took responsibility.
It also works if you use humbleness instead of humility.
Example 2: Instead of arguing, he showed humbleness when he apologized for his mistake and took responsibility.
** But to my ear, the word humbleness doesn't sound as good as humility.
This is why I believe what I believe.
does not require thinking oneself to be unimportant, weak, poor, or etc.
HUMILITY is a noun and HUMBLENESS is an adjective
So I prefer having HUMILTY because humilty will combat humbleness.
The point of this is Humility and Humbleness will take you so far in life and being that I am in an industry that require humility and humbleness because of that it has opened many doors for me that I never expected to happen and made me even the more humble.
I appreciate my roots and where I've come from because I probably wouldn't be where I am today and probably wouldn't be able to take constructive criticism if my parents have not instilled that quality of humility in me. Some are born with it and some have to work on it.
I just thought I should share that with you all. :D
