    Define Humility as you see it. I'll give my answer after 3 pages.

    It's a modest opinion of your importance.

    The ability to know the difference from humiliation (negative self awareness) and humbleness (lacking but seeking enlightenment).

    Finding out no one is going to wait around for the opinion of a guy who lives on 400 bucks a month , in the city park trying to pick fights with strangers to prove how tough he is ?

    humble is something we do not see too much anymore...most people are out there to prove how tough, how brash, how loud they can be....humble....

    humble is quiet...calm....humble is knowing who and what you are...and accepting it....humble is the daily quiet struggle to become a better person

    Sorry about the headache Grace.

    One definition that I've heard (and used a bit before my current definition), is thus.....

    "Humility isn't thinking less of yourself, it's thinking of yourself less."

    That right there is one of the better definitions that I've heard incidentally, but it's not quite what I had in mind.

    From a faith based perspective, I know that I always have room to grow in humility, as I fall short at it.

    I'd say it's partly being a servant to others. Also to be able to confess we do wrong and apologize to others. Not looking "down" on others for anything, that includes outward appearancs, intelligence, material possessions, etc. That doesn't mean we don't stand for the truth or justice, however. But being able to take criticism and also, to overlook offenses from others, as we know we can fall short also.
