I must remember that Humility is not humiliation. Humility shows my my important part and place i the Universe. Humiliation is degrading and makes one person greater than another in a way that tears away the dignity of that person. Humility creates a sense of self worth in that it gives something to fulfill the potential of and then grow beyond. Peace, Friends to You.
