Being modest means to be thrifty . not to brag your merits , establish a exhilibru between desires and possibilities. Most use the term mocking and many end up not knowing the meaning of the word. The first tendency when we think modesty is to consider individual appearance , a specific characteristic of a person , manifested by his attitude towards people and things in general. Not easy to keep all your balance in a world full of temptations , in a world where if things were reversed , the scale of values has diminished and the way of life an adventure . No need to see this as arrogance.
