Self righteousness

Though I like to reflect on my life in writing, I catch myself sounding self righteous and I don’t like it. My positive outlook, my self reassurance, it is rooted in struggle. I think at times, the more self righteous I sound, the more insecure I am and I talk myself up through my introspection. 

Self righteousness is unbecoming because it doesn’t beget growth. In humility, in embracing the truth, we have a leg to stand on and thus push forward. 

The way to true humility is not thinking less of yourself but instead thinking of yourself less. So maybe, the seasons I simply live and not ponder myself, are truly light not shallow.
