Do you suffer from mistaken humility? It’s why you continually say you’re sorry, even when you aren’t at fault.
What is mistaken humility?
Mistaken humility refers to a misunderstanding or misinterpretation of true humility. Humility is a virtue characterized by modesty, an absence of arrogance, and a respectful attitude toward others. However, mistaken humility occurs when individuals distort or misrepresent genuine humility, often because of low self-esteem or victim thinking, as a means to seek attention, or gain sympathy. It becomes a psychological-reversal in your spiritual framework. If you suffer under this misguided understanding of humility you will find yourself saying “I’m sorry” far more than accountability requires.
