Modesty is a good state. It is the quality of being not proud or confident about yourself, and moderate in the estimation of one's ability. On the other hand, if someone slaps you, will you give him the other cheek out of modesty? If someone takes your land, will you succumb out of modesty? Are there limits or red lines for shyness or timidity?
Ni hao Kitty, wa tongy. I agree with you, Kitty. If someone insults me, I insult him, owing to an eye for an eye. But if I am able to do that and more and I did not use anything like that. That person knows it, then that we call modesty. Let us put it that way, suppose I am strong, brave and that guy is a coward and not strong enough to fight me. Here, we call that modesty.
Modesty and timidity are two concepts that are separated by a thin line. You can take on this side or that side in a distracting moment. Modesty is possitive side, so can you take this side always? even you are insulted? It's up to you if you are true modesty. i mean that a modest man know that how the best way to solve his issue.
