What’s Wrong with Being Modest?

When I was a little girl, mom used to say to my sister and I, “Always, be modest. Don’t be too much. Step back. People won’t like you if you stand out.”

Of course, I would listen to mom and would always try hard to fit it and merge with the crowd. No only was I humble and modest, I was also shy and afraid to even to speak during classes at school.
