    How do you deal with humility, when you know you're wrong, if at all?

    Humility is a very powerful virtue that can be very hard to practice. It is something that we naturally put a guard up to avoid, or evade admission of being wrong. In other word's we don't want to look or feel like idiots. I laugh but it is something that can and does bring peace and healing to relationships. Many times relationships can be destroyed so easily because of our abilities to master and justify the practice of being humble...and I'm raising my handto be the first to admit that humility is so hard for me. But  when humility has been practiced the feelings are very rewarding.

    Hello monicaortegamon,

    I have a recent example for this. Me and my partner went to visit some friends over the weekend. As we had to fly out and my partner has not travelled for a long time I laughed at him wanting to pack all the bits in his hand luggage: soap, toothpaste etc. I giggled and told him that surely my friends would have these every day items at their home and we should travel as light as possible as we did not have any suitcases. You can imagine my look of surprise when at my friends' place there was no shower gel and no toothpaste in the bathroom, this was so odd. I did not have the courage to inquire about it so we just went and bought stuff at the shops. Coming home my partner and I had a good laugh about it and I confirmed that he had been right in the first place. He was really loverly though and said that it was rather unusual that we did not find these items at our friends' place. I always admit my errors and make fun of myself. I am not perfect and having done something silly it is best to just admit it and carry on.

    Your 'Team Leader'

    Try to think of humility as an opportunity to see yourself on the same level playing field as everyone else.  Humility has a way keeping the ego in check.  It is not meant to be about embarassment, but a moment when we realize how human we are.  So take that humility and bless it as a lesson learned and smile with everyone else at your own discord and tuck the experience away to remind you in the future to not make that mistake again!
