In Part 1 and Part 2 I share more of what I learned about humility. How humility is different than humiliation.
Humility is different than humiliation. Humiliation scorns the individual. Humiliation’s motive is to control and limit. Humiliation undermines self-esteem, self- respect and self-value. Humiliation stymies creative expression. Humiliation demands justification.
Humiliation seeks to disparage, minimize and marginalize the individual — at their very core. Humiliation promotes fear and insecurity. Humiliation undermines enthusiasm and motivation. Humiliation promotes fear. Humiliation cripples initiative. Humiliation squashes hope.
Prior to understanding the difference between humility and humiliation I berated myself on a daily basis. I believed that I was the problem and thus deserved to be victimized and humiliated by life and the people in my world. Consequently, I felt trapped by the voice of criticism and the clamoring of shame.
My efforts to be enough were frequently chided as inadequate. Consequently, I developed insecurity, low self-esteem, and low self-worth. I did not believe that I made mistakes, but that I was a mistake.
At the core of my being, humiliation chided me as inadequate and unlovable. My attempts to quiet the voice of humiliation — shame and criticism — only seemed to reinforce the impact that humiliation had upon my life. Unrealistic expectations kept me anxious and depressed.
Humiliation reinforced the belief that I could not do enough to be enough. Humiliation inhibited my being through intimidation. Humiliation demanded that I be perfect. Humiliation hindered my ability to find peace. Peace with other people and peace with myself.
