There’s a thin line between confidence and arrogance….it’s called humility. Confidence smiles. Arrogance smirks.
Some people think that humility is a sign of weakness. Nothing could be further from the truth! Confidence simply means we know who we are, we know what we’re doing, and we are going to remain positive no matter the outcome.
Humility does not mean we walk around depressed, with our head hanging low! No way. However, humility does keep us from becoming arrogant. Arrogance is the bad type of pride that makes us think we are better than other people. It can cause divisions, and hurt other people, without even caring that pain has been inflicted.
So I think the author is saying that having humility is important in order for us to have balance. Smirking is no good, because our heart is not right, and it causes pain. Smiling is very good, because it tells other people, you still care, but you know who you are. You are a positive person!
Have a great week!
