Humility is one of mankind’s most widely loved personality traits. Social groups, whether they are religions or cultural, nearly all preach the necessity of humility. It is a widely held belief that to be humble, is to be good. Being good is crucial in a society where those who are good are rewarded, whereas those who are bad are punished.
Humility is defined as a modest or low view of one’s own importance. Modesty is defined as the quality of not being too proud or confident about yourself or your abilities. Taking a good look at these definitions, it becomes immediately apparent that humility is not actually beneficial to our lives; in fact, it is detrimental.
In this episode, Teal explains that Humility is not a virtue. She explains that humility prevents us from knowing our own divinity and it causes us to live half of the life we came here to live.
