When we lack humility, we usually end up disrespecting and hurting others. We can also end up feeling humiliated ourselves. This is one of the spiritual consequences of defying this spiritual principle.

Practicing humility in your recovery makes you teachable,

Practicing humility makes you a better listener and it allows you to examine yourself without shame or judgment.


The hardest thing about practicing humility is that most of us want to feel that we have some kind of power or importance in our own lives. Lowering our importance goes against what is natural to us.


Humility is not low self-esteem.


Humility means taking credit for what you are responsible for and giving credit for what you are not responsible for.


Humility means learning from others.
