Situations that can decrease humility

However, new technologies and social media have also fostered selfishness and self-centeredness. This is because youth have found in taking photos of oneself a way to get positive comments from others, making them addictive. Therefore, depending on the quantity and quality of the images of oneself that are uploaded in the network, they are likely to obtain greater gratification on the network and this helps them to feel better.

This need to receive constant compliments, in addition to being addictive, can lead to great disappointments, since it can progressively stop having them due to the speed with which things change on the network or because there are many other people also generating content. These adolescents, who are still shaping their personality, are more emotionally vulnerable , so all of this can have a very negative effect on their feelings . One of these can be, for example, the fact of stopping being less humble, believing all the positive comments you may have or becoming depressed in the case of negative ones.

In the same way that it can happen to an adult in this same position or in different ones. There are people who during their growth or maturity have been exposed to situations during which others have praised their tasks or their physique, or they find themselves in a situation of power over others, which may have encouraged that, with Over time, they have lost some of their humility and do not feel bad about showing themselves superior to the rest or believing themselves more than those around them .

I think I have a lack of humility. How can I be more humble?

The first step to becoming more humble is to realize that one is not always being humble enough. Therefore, before judging others or believing yourself superior to them, you must become aware of your own fault. Knowing that you also have flaws will make you humble and realize that you are not perfect . In this way you will understand that others are not either and you can accept them as they are. Likewise, you can also realize that you have many other virtues and things that make you stand out, even above others, but you are not the only one, since surely you have realized that other people also have many good things, above yours in many cases, and which are also worthy of admiration.

Thus, you can learn to be more humble only by stopping being so self-centered or selfish and by discovering new places and people. The more personalities you discover, the better you will see that there are many different profiles in the world and that there are people who are better than you in many things and others who are not so, but the important thing is to accept and tolerate them as they are, since you can learn a lot from them. .

The idea is not to feel jealous or want to become like them, but to understand that each of us is different, which makes us special, and we should want to improve for our own benefit, not to gain power or be better than the rest. in some particular aspect of our lives, but to be happier and feel complete, always from respect and humility. Remember that being too humble is not a positive aspect either , as it will cause many people to take advantage of you, making you feel smaller and undervalued . Therefore, you must find the balance between self-love and humility, to feel good about yourself, but also respected and valued as you deserve.
