Humility (Being Humble) vs. Weakness

Post by Tsar »

I was mistaken in an earlier thread when I thought someone might be humble.

Humility or being humble, is when someone who is physically powerful doesn't abuse the power, it's when a popular person doesn't abuse their popularity or mistreat ordinary or unpopular people, and it's when rich people choose to live in ordinary homes instead of mansions.

Allowing someone to continuously insult you or allow them constantly provoke trouble isn't humility or being humble. That's being a pushover and weak.

There's a clear distinction between the two.
