Like all things, it is a work in progress, but I try to humble myself
and accept the reality that though I can become something very great,
boasting of my accomplishments does nothing but cause me to get buried.
The more I boast the deeper the hole. That isn't the only thing that
digs a hole of course, but it is the first step to becoming something
vile. so yeah...
My fuse has greatly lengthened in many ways before I do something foolish.
All in all, it takes time, learning to humble ones self, and controlling
my ego/pride. Pride is the first step before most evil actions at least
that is why I think.
That's my thoughts on this. ;)
