Relax, Rachel. You're among friends now.

Just keep an eye on Frodo. He gets a bit weird at times.

'a bit' is also an understatement.
I used to tell a lot of religious jokes. Not any more, I'm a registered sects offender.

All theists are at least "a bit" weird. One needs to make a few allowances.

And some people are bloody psychotic!

And some people used to be psychotic but then recovered some time after hospitalization. Myself for example.

All too often pushing that humility is a great virtue is a disguise for belittling someone's self worth to unhealthy levels. My parents raised me to have so much humility that even after over a year I think that I haven't associated with them or anyone else toxic from my past, if someone is hurting me I struggle asking them to stop or even having the "audacity" to complain about it. Humility is not always a good thing. Having a low view of your own importance can be extremely harmful. Pride means "a feeling of deep pleasure or satisfaction derived from ones own achievements". Pride is not always a bad thing being satisfied with yourself, your achievements, and your life can be very healthy.

So no, humility isn't always good. It's all about balance. People should think highly enough of their own worth that they love themselves and never let others use them as a doormat, and they shouldn't think so highly of themselves that they allow themselves to impede someone else's path to happiness.

Weird is interesting and stimulates thought. I would take weird over boring drones any day!
