I’ve wondered this for a long time. When people start off an acceptance speech or they talk about winning an award or they are being praised in some way. I’m so humbled by this award. I’m so humbled by being voted best looking person in the world.
I just don’t get it.
How is that humbling? Google says humble is “Having or showing a modest or low estimate of one’s own importance.” HELLO you are talking about how great you are!
Wouldn’t it be more humbling if you didn’t get an award?
