PONDER on THIS for Friday, October 3rd, 2014 by Sara Chetkin in THE HEALING CURVE

“Humility helps us to won our part in any circumstance. It helps us to take responsibility for our lives and to begin making changes where it counts: within ourselves. Yet, I think the most important reason I have devoted so much time to humility is that it takes incredible strength to remain humble, and this intrigues me. In the West, we associate humility with weakness. We’re proud of a strong will. We honor a robust personality, and we idolize people who have firm, unwavering convictions. But stubbornness is easy. People are stubborn and arrogant because they are afraid and insecure. Refusing to concede keeps them feeling safe. Humility is more akin to flexibility and acceptance, and it terrifies the hell out of most of us.”

Sara Chetkin, in “The Healing Curve”
