    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!
