Below is a quote from mother Teresa about how we can practice humility, which i found very inspirational. Therefore sharing it with you. In the lines below i have found very accurate solutions for most of our daily problems such as fear, jealousy, feeling lonely, anger.
“These are the few ways we can practice humility:
To speak as little as possible of one’s self.
To mind one’s own business.
Not to want to manage other people’s affairs.
To avoid curiosity.
To accept contradictions and correction cheerfully.
To pass over the mistakes of others.
To accept insults and injuries.
To accept being slighted, forgotten and disliked.
To be kind and gentle even under provocation.
Never to stand on one’s dignity.
To choose always the hardest.”
– Mother Teresa
