Do you recognize yourself?

You often keep your own skills hidden. You easily get bothered by public praise and being on display.

You don't put yourself on a pedestal, you let your actions speak for themselves.

Use it!

Don't exaggerate what you do, let others discover your talents.

Donate something anonymously or help others secretly.

Too little:

You brag about your own merits and show yourself off everywhere.

Too much:

You keep your skills hidden, and you don't let your strengths come out. 

Modesty is a virtue that has been valued by many cultures and religions across the world. Modesty is not just confined to clothing but it goes beyond that. It is an attitude and a behavior that involves showing humility, respect, and decency in all aspects of one's life.

Modesty starts with acknowledging that we are all equal before God and that no one is better than the other. It means dressing appropriately and not flaunting oneself in a way that may be immodest, attracting undue attention or provoking others.

When we are modest, we send a message that we value ourselves and our body and we respect the feelings and dignity of others. We show that we don't need to show off to feel good about ourselves, and that we can still feel confident and secure without revealing too much.

Modesty also teaches us to be respectful of our surroundings and to be mindful of the impact we have on others. It fosters a sense of humility, which enables us to recognize the value of our own limitations to better understand others. Humility is a virtue that is essential to human growth and it encourages us to learn from our mistakes and our failures.

Modesty encourages us to be simple in our way of life. Living a simple life allows us to live a life that is focused on what is truly important in life, such as our values, our faith, and our relationships. This helps us to appreciate the beauty of life as it is, and not to constantly strive for more, as material things often leave us feeling empty and unfulfilled.

In a world that is constantly bombarding us with images and messages encouraging us to flaunt ourselves, modesty is even more important. Modesty helps us to navigate through this world with grace and dignity while maintaining our values and principles.

Moreover, modesty is not just about clothing. It includes the way we speak, the way we carry ourselves, and the way we interact with others. Modesty is shown in our actions more than anything else.

In conclusion, modesty is a beautiful trait that should be encouraged in every aspect of our lives. It is not just about dressing in a certain way, but it is about cultivating an attitude of respect, humility, simplicity, and decency. Modesty teaches us to value ourselves and others, to lead a simple life, and to appreciate what is truly important in life.
