    Humility Is One of My Vices

    I Value Humility

    My Perspective

    To me one aspect of humility is the ability to look at ourselves objectively, admitting our errors and the willingness to correct them. Some mistakes cannot be corrected, so a humble well-meaning apology is in order and simply making the effort not to do those things anymore...

    Something For Me To Strive For!
