There is no doubt in my mind that our past is responsible for shaping the way we see and live our life in the present moment and for some of us that becomes a humbling experience, for others it can be a nightmare.
Regardless of how we grow up and how our lives have been previously shaped, it’s important for us to live our lives with humility, so that we appreciate the little things, the things we often take for granted, the things that we’ve got, want and can get if we don’t have them.
When we grow up with very little, it’s easier to present with a more humbling existence and attitude, but it can also throw us into a must have mentality, where we will stand at nothing, until we get what we want.
I believe that without bringing a more spiritual understanding into our lives, it will be difficult to achieve humility, value our lives and other people. It is the spiritual existence that brings about empathy, compassion and tolerance and it is those things, which give us humility.
