Choosing the path of humility will keep you from thinking too highly of yourself. When living a humble life. Consideration, respect, and generosity come with ease. We don’t get upset with trivial things or compare ourselves to others or don’t act selfishly when we can’t have our way.
When who spend time with others, we don’t focus on ourselves. Which makes it difficult to be selfish. Some people always think what’s in it for me? If we can have the attitude, how can I help this person enjoy their day? You are giving the gift of Joy.
What God has given us by grace we should give away. It was freely given to you, so freely give it away. We need to realize we are not always right and don’t have all the answers. But being humble sometimes if just being there for someone.
Practice mindfulness and focus on the present. Sometimes, I say things like I have to go to the store but when I get there it’s like being on autopilot. I don’t see other people, their reactions, the looks on their faces. Or even if people could use a little help. That’s not how I want to be. Some day’s I get focusing on the store I volunteer at. Or my son living so far away.
Be grateful for what you have. I thank God every day that I woke up to have a new day. And that I have food to eat, a roof over my head, and running water.
Some people don’t have anything at all. Be grateful your not homeless or suffering hunger pains from not having anything to eat.
Ask for help when you need it.
Many of us will recognize a form of pride that lies in being able to solve our problems. Humbly, therefore, lies in recognizing when we need help. And being able to ask for help appropriately.
Humility may sound old-fashioned, but that does not mean that a little humbleness is not important now as ever.
In a era in which many complain about growing selfishness and focus on the world, perhaps we should strive to develop a more humble approach.
