Humility is defined as being humble, which encapsulates the following aspects:

Marked by meekness or modesty in behavior, attitude, or spirit; not arrogant or prideful.

Showing deferential or submissive respect: a humble apology.

Low in rank, quality, or station; unpretentious or lowly: a humble cottage


Whilst I value humility in regards of recognising we are all people within the human race and I believe in reaching out and co-operation.  I do not believe in losing individuality, which is often the result of too strict an adeherence to humility.

To be humble constantly, is to not take account and use our skills and gifts which is not why we are equipped with them.  Low self-esteem and the creation of masking our talents arise to remain popular rather than merely not being boastful and unthankful for our gifts.
