Can you ever bee too humble?

- Advertisement -

I’ve always had a somewhat humble spirit but I was confident and had an ego(not a big one, but I had one). Once I started on my spiritual path I have recognized my prideful ways and have abolished them and still working everyday to keep myself in check. My only problem is that now I’ve noticed that I’ve lost my self-confidence. Although my mind is a lot more a ease I’ve kind of lost a little of my spunk. I used to really not care what people thought of me and now I find myself being self-conscious at times. I think that while purifying myself of my old ways my self confidence has diminished. As if I cant remain humble if I am confident. How do I find a balance?

You can be too anything.
For example, if someone needs a bomb expert to diffuse a bomb, and you’re too humble to admit that you’re better than everybody else in diffusing the bomb, you might get people killed over it. That’s a case where letting people know how great you are might help.
If you had absolutely no ego, you’d never try anything for fear of showing someone else up. You really have to see the value in yourself before you can help others. Pride is a good thing. It’s only bad when there’s too much pride, unwarranted pride, or when your own pride excludes being proud of others.

I think being humble is a positive attribute. But you have to be able to stand up for yourself or else you’re going to be stepped on without mercy

Yes……….believe it or not……..you can be too humble.
When I first got saved & somebody would come up to me after the morning worship and say “great job on the piano”…..I would always give glory to God & deflect it away from me.
Finally, my pastor at that time said to me “It’s good to give glory to God but……just say thanks”
I understand what he means now, years later.
There is a thing called false humility too

Humility is good. Remember that Jesus spoke with authority. Being humble isn’t being a door-mat.

kisss meee!!

be humble in your confidence, and confident in your humbleness my child.

I definitely think you can. For example, Mary agreed to be the mother of Jesus because it was God’s Will. Had she refused, saying, “I’m not worthy to be the mother of Jesus,” this would have been excessive humility. Had she said, “No, I’m too good to be the mother of Jesus,” this would have been pride.

“O’ Lord it’s hard to be humble…When you’re perfect in every way.
I can’t wait to look the mirror…cause I get better lookin each day.”
No I could never be too humble… đŸ˜‰

You need to find strength in your successes and your ability to overcome difficulties.
If you tell everyone how good you are or what you accomplished, then you really aren’t as good as you think. Imagine a person telling people how funny he is instead of simply making them laugh.
I used to brag, make up stories about things I’ve done, and tell everyone how amazing I am. I found once I stopped doing that and focused on actually improving myself, a lot of people tell me what a good person I am. That builds self-esteem more then me telling them.
Be patient in your quest. You’ll never one day wake up and and be enlightened. It comes slowly, but keep not showing off.
Good luck

“…God resists the proud, but gives grace unto the humble.” James 4:6.
“Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He shall lift you up.” Jame 4:10.
“…be clothed with humility… Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time: casting all your care [worries] upon Him; for He cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:5-7.

I don’t know if that is what you would
call humbleness in the Lord.
Remember, the Lord gets all the credit.
Not you.
So, if you are losing self-esteem,
perhaps you are forgetting
how much the Father loves you.
Do not be conformed to this world…
Renew your mind and read the Holy Word.
God bless!

I have that same problem too. How do you be confident when you are told that you should put other’s needs before your own. It’s difficult because we are not used to putting ourselves last. I ask what would make me happy, what do I need?
This is how I figured it out. I’m not putting other’s needs before my own because they are better than me but because God has asked me too. You are not doing it for them but in obedience to God.
You can never be too humble for God. Jesus is our example. I struggle with pride daily. Humility is simply obeying God.
Your Confidence is in God not Your Self
5-8Think of yourselves the way Christ Jesus thought of himself. He had equal status with God but didn’t think so much of himself that he had to cling to the advantages of that status no matter what. Not at all. When the time came, he set aside the privileges of deity and took on the status of a slave, became human! Having become human, he stayed human. It was an incredibly humbling process. He didn’t claim special privileges. Instead, he lived a selfless, obedient life and then died a selfless, obedient death–and the worst kind of death at that–a crucifixion. Phil. 2: 5ff (Message Version)

You can be humble and still expect respect. If someone says something ugly to me,
I don’t think what I can do to them to get even, I ask them why they are treating me like they do.
This really sits them down. They start apologizing.
Ole slu foot is always on the job to try to hurt God’s people. Don’t lose your confidence.
You are God’s property and very special and precious to him. You have every right to walk with your head up unless God tells you otherwise..
Ask God to let you know what to say to unkind people.
He will. But always ask them why they treat you unkind. You don’t have to be a door mat for others.
You are a child of the Great King and actually a very wealthy person.
You just have to wait for your inheritance.
I love to study a Jewish wedding which portrays our relationship with our Lord.
It is so beautiful
Put in seach Jewish wedding and the bride of Christ.

Humility is often misinterpreted as you have to feel like your less than anyone else. It doesn’t mean that at all. No one is better than you and you are no better than anyone else. You have talents and knowledge that I don’t possess Not even knowing you I can state that as a fact. I have talents and knowledge that no one else has. Each of us is unique in that way.
I look around at other people and think “what can I learn from them?” Sometimes you’ll never know. But that would be because your low self confidence kept you from talking to them.
It’s the wise man who knows what he doesn’t know.

My precious Jewel…
I can sympathize with your “deficit” and the way you feel, my little “Gem Stone”….and I guess all your “inner work” has “got the best of you”….and you may have “overdone” it a bit….-smile-
Just try to “regain” your self-confidence somehow…I know, it’s easier “said than done”….but that’s the best I can advise you “from a distance”…-smile-
I doubt, if one can be “too humble”…..honey….but, if you have a feeling, that this may be the cause for “loosing” your self-confidence, then…..”make a change”, baby ! Wish you all the best for the future and send you all my love & care….Annette****
