In their book, The Creativity Cure: A Do-It Yourself Prescription for Happiness, authors Carrie Barron and Alton Barron write,

“Humility is not assuming you know more than you do, or that you are grander than you might be. It is being at peace with the fact that you need to learn some things. …

Humility is about being your True Self, deficiencies included. Humility is acknowledgment of your True Self, admitting who you are and what you do and do not know.” Humility is being comfortable with yourself.

Do not separate yourself from your True Self. No matter what, stand up for yourself. And do not present who you are not. Because you are better than that.
