False humility

Is stingy.

A refusal to share your joy

With those who would receive it.

To act as though delightful things

Are not so.

To not bear good news.

It isn’t a more noble alternative to pride,

Nor a useful way

Of accepting feedback.

In a year that has exceeded its fair share

Of hard luck and bad news

If you have something to be happy about

Holding back and acting cool will serve no one-

Be happy.
