The humble have the good fortune of seeing reality as it actually is.

Humility gets a bad rap. But in truth, the humble see reality as it is, without the illusions or distortions of the ego. They recognize their limits and act in good conscience.

The proud, on the other hand, are blinded by vanity and arrogance and believe they can do no wrong. They consider themselves superior to others. Their situation gets worse if they isolate themselves from others, thinking the world is against them.
