There is something about being humble and staying humble. You know those people who you wish you didn't have to be around because their ego is the size of a hot air balloon? A person with a superego does not care what others feel or want, they are very self-centered and they are only concerned about their own well-being.

When you are humble and are willing to help others when they are struggling or are in need, it makes you someone that is easy for others to reach out to. This is because when you are more approachable, then others won't be afraid to ask you for help or advice. If you are the one that puts off the persona of a superego, then people will be less likely to ask you for assistance.

Being humble doesn't always come with perks. Sometimes in life we find that the more humble we are, the more we get overlooked. Being humble sometimes means that others with bigger and larger personalities may overpower your own in a job interview, or when being recognized for your accomplishments — but staying true to yourself and practicing humility is something that does get noticed in the long run. People look for you to be humble because it means you can work well with others.

When attempting to only appear humble and modest to others while actually trying to get people to notice our accomplishments, we fail to learn how to be truly humble. The function of humility isn't just about improving upon our manners — it is a way to focus on the good in other people. Staying humble will help us all to live our best lives by helping us to become better people. So hopefully we can all stay humble and kind.
