Humility is not the same as depreciation.
I wish I had known.
Self-depreciation is the narrative looping to me, from me, in me, all me is that I am no good. Too ugly, too dumb, too mean, too crazy, too lazy, too loud, too on and on unworthy.
Humility is the quality or state of being humble.
Humble not proud or haughty; not arrogant or assertive.
Depreciating, a verb, diminishing in value over a period of time; synonym, cheapen.
Now I know.
With humbleness, I whisper,
“Self, you are mighty.”
