Humility is like underwear, it's necessary but it's indecent if it shows.

Humility is the opposite of humiliation - although humiliation becomes humility if it is dealt with well. When we hit bottom, we experienced humiliation. As we progress in recovery, we experience humility. Humility empowers. When present, humility eases stress and self consciousness because our ego defenses don't have to work overtime to justify sick behavior. However, if we try to help others for praise, we are back to letting our egos control again and the stress and self consciousness will return - as if someone is seeing our underwear.
