Be Humble- Essay #Gandhiji

read with sara be humble bookosmia

Once I had a friend named Sam.

 

He was very humble and modest. However, I must admit that at that time, I  was a big show off and boasted about the many milestones I had achieved.

 

Once Sam and I were going for a walk. He suddenly stopped and gave a beggar half the money that we were going to use to get ice-cream. I was astonished!

 

I asked him why he gave his money? But he did not reply.

 

A few weeks later, we had a friends gathering. I was about to tell everyone  about Sam’s deed, but he stopped me. I was quite surprised!

 

At the end of the gathering, I asked Sam why he stopped me from talking  about him. Sam said, “If you tell everyone, they will think that I am boastful, but I do not want them to think that. I want to be a good person and also humble.” Then he left, with a soft smile.

 

I realized my own behaviour was often boastful. Since then I try to be a humble person.

 

Like Gandhi Ji always said, “Be humble.”
