I am saying this because I can advise you, I think I have the privilege to and more importantly it is a treasured responsibility (not really).
Calling someone names, cherishing the pleasure of beating someone over enjoying your win, doing tit for tat, punching back harder for you just got punched are not always the best actions. These are actions that suit a fifth grader, not an adult.
Deriding the other person in response to their misbehaviour is a sign of an insecure self, it makes you a lesser person. And, in no way better than the other one.
Insulting someone in front of others is not a responsible act, even when the person in question deserves much worse. Doing so might look right but believe me it is not.
Some might pat your back, but the wiser ones will never approve. They never will.
For the things on highs someday or the other will face the lows. It’s the way universe functions, the balance gets restored. Humility thus is not overrated it is a quality that will guide you home when all else fails.
Success unknowingly breeds arrogance. Failure, on the other hand, begets resentment. The presence of humility negates both the by-products.
During hard times arrogance breaks you in bits and pieces until you become despondent. Conversely, humility helps you bounce back, see you through the long dark nights of lows.
I can go on writing about other things, but I’ll keep it to what is really important at this time.
Until next time.
