Why do we have to be humble? That is the question that I asked myself. I always hated the word when people said it and I didn’t understand why people liked to say it. Now that I am older and after looking into it all, I do understand and I am here to tell you to stop being humble!
What does humble mean? Well, a quick Google search will tell you:
- from Latin humilis (“low, slight, hence mean, humble”)
- having or showing a modest or low estimate of one’s importance.
- of low social, administrative, or political rank.
- cause (someone) to feel less important or proud.
- ordinary; not special or very important:
- not considering yourself or your ideas to be as important as other people’s
- “submissive, respectful, lowly in manner, modest, not self-asserting, obedient,”
Not being humble doesn’t mean you need to be arrogant but it does mean you don’t need to deny or lower your importance.
Being humble can be a huge sign of low self-value & for years it was drummed into me & many of my friends that we should be humble. The problem is that that results in low self-value & when you have that you are much more compliant & easy to control.
When you know your importance it scares people. How dare you mess with the status quo & think you are important? Especially when they don’t think they themselves are important. No, you should “be humble” aka unimportant, ordinary, average…. just like them. Their opinions, however, don’t matter. Whether they are the same as yours or different from yours, the only thing that matters is what you know to be true. What you believe. If you know you’re important you do not need to act like you aren’t & be humble, just to appease the people around you who feel uncomfortable by it. Embrace & accept your importance!
Do you think the Queen cares that she is the only one dressed to the nines when she attends a function? No, because she knows she’s important. Do you think she cares that others may feel uncomfortable in her knowledge & belief that she is important & thinks to herself “I need to be humble”? It’s laughable because it sounds ridiculous. She doesn’t necessarily go out of her way to be arrogant & cocky with it by constantly vocalising just how important she believes she is, but she certainly doesn’t dim her light or act as though she is “low in importance” by being humble, so why should you? If you truly believe you are important then stop being humble. Stop downplaying your importance. You are only doing yourself harm by eroding your confidence. What other people believe about you doesn’t matter but what you believe does. Stop dimming your light, it’s time to shine.
