A humbling experience can be defined as one that puts life into perspective, even if only for a short time in which you are put into a situation.

A humbling experience might be meeting a special individual, for others it could be exploring a new place, experiencing a wonder of nature, or helping those in need.



Perhaps you've experienced a time when you felt somewhat insignificant during a time of wonder, or felt a sense of realisation and admiration.

What has been your most humbling, potentially life-changing experience to-date?

About 10 months ago...I started with a few other women....visiting the 'girls' who work in Brothels.

We are a team who make sure the 'girls' are ok, and if they need help to leave that job.

When you see how sad it is for them, and how they feel.....it is very much a
wake up experience for us, and very humbling too.(We all belong to a Ministry) and have a calling for this.
