Humility



Humility is the state of being free from pride or arrogance, assuming qualities of modesty and being down-to-earth or unassuming. It can also include putting the needs of others before your own, as well as not drawing attention toward yourself above others. Humility is not self-abasement or denial of one’s own capabilities and accomplishments, but rather a removal of self as the focus of attention. Humility is interpreted differently by various cultures, philosophies, and religions, but is commonly valued by the majority of traditions as a desirable trait.
