“Humility and inner peace go hand in hand. The less compelled you are to try to prove yourself to others, the easier is is to feel peaceful inside”.
“Proving yourself is a dangerous trap. It takes an enormous amount of energy to be continually pointing out your accomplishments, bragging, or trying to convince others of your worth as a human being. Bragging actually dilutes the positive feelings you receive from an accomplishment or something you are proud of”.
