I understand what you're saying but I think it's possible to acknowledge humility in yourself.

I would just say it in a different way, like saying "i try my best to stay humble" comes across a lot better

This! Saying you're TRYING to be humble when you're clearly very humble is a classic humble-move.

This is exactly what I was going to say - acknowledge the effort, not the result.

Agreed, when you don't do it for self-glorification or brag about it out of context, it's not an act of arrogance

Yeah; or even just ‚I'd like to think I'm humble‘, that's what I usually say when it comes up for whatever reason The Truth is people that are humble rarely ever have to say so directly, right? Like, the last time I mentioned it like that is when someone asked me what I think my own strenghts are, aside from that; why would you ever need to say that out loud to anyone except for if you're especially not humble and trying to cope?

Yes, this. Like, it is absolutely OK to accept that you are humble and it is OK to say you are humble time to time, but if they are trying to promote themselves all the time as humble then they are just trying to gain popularity which is not very humble.

I hear this all the time in the circles I run in and it aggravates me so much. If you ARE humble, you do not SAY that you are humble. Otherwise that negates all the humbleness you have.

This isn't true. I'm so humble, and am just such a good person that I can revel in how humble I am without not being humble. Unlike SOME people. /j

Only for $20,000, but you gotta act now, this is a humble offer that you can't pass up. Borrow money from friends if you have to! It'll be more than worth it, when it goes up in value. This BS humble sale was brought to you by none other than the Humbleding incorporated. Act now while supplies last!

I disagree. It depends on how you say it. Is the person just stating that they're humble, Or are they bragging that their humble. there is a difference.

It's impossible to be humble without first knowing the truth of who you are, and then accepting who you are as a person. If you're able to do this and discover you truly are a humble person, then saying so doesn't diminish your humility, but rather exemplifies it. Saying you aren't humble would actually be a lie, and only serves to protect one's imagine as others are under the false notion that speaking of yourself in such a manner is considered to not be polite and sounds like bragging. It's only not humble if you're wrong.

What about the phrase "I have been humbled"?

by Anonymous 3 months ago

That's not about yourself being humble.

by Anonymous 3 months ago

I think it's a phrase said in reaction to something knocking you down off your high horse. Not that you've always been humble but a situation has made you so.

I've got a general rule to never say I'm nice, intelligent, funny, or an empath. These should be things people say about you based on your actions rather than your own admission of those qualities.
