A person who tends to feel unhappy and discouraged should be cautious about working on humility. Such a person needs to focus on his virtues and strengths. Focusing on his faults and shortcomings is likely to destroy the small amount of joy he does have.
(Rabbi Shlomo Wolbe - "Alai Shur," vol. 1, p.65; Rabbi Pliskin's
"Gateway to Happiness," p.117)
