Humbleness Is Attractive

I find it very attractive and respectable for someone to be humble.
It tells me that you are confident enough in yourself that you don't have to walk around beating your chest, patting yourself on the back, bragging and being cocky.
Someone who can graciously take a compliment and knows how to not take themselves so seriously.

It is something I really and truly respect in others.

So true, I feel the exact same way, being humble is a beautiful quality

Nothing more annoying than someone who's eyes are too close together.....I did this, I did that, I'm so good at X......



It becomes stale very fast.

Soo True!! I've yet to meet a, "chest thumper" who wasn't either a shallow collection of pointless entitlements or a total mess with TONS of insecurities they try to hide under a facade of fake bravado... It's always transparent and totally boring....Down to earth and honest..ROCKS!!



We're all a mess half the time and might just as well own it....Folks see it anyway!!

Exactly! And yes, you see it a mile away and it IS boring.
I heard a quote the other night that backs up what you said:
"Often the things we try to hide are most obvious to the people around us."

Great quote...very true too.....
I think it's easier just to go ahead and admit to being whatever we are...Faking or bragging takes up valuable time we could be using on having some FUN!! :D

Yep, and if people put on a facade, that's energy being wasted to maintain that image. I imagine it would be quite exhausting to always have to put on a front.

Plus, I would rather people accept me for me, and not who they think I should be.

I agree with affinityterra Ones ability to look at themselves objectively to see where they have been wrong and admit those faults is very humbling and that is very attractive.

Yes, me too. I wish I had thought to include that up there because that is a very important quality to have.

100% agree. It's extremely attractive.
