...or, is there a pattern to the humiliation?
Mine are not so much humiliations as they are stupid decisions.
You are in 100% control of whether you feel humiliated or not!
Not feeling humiliated takes a busload of denial.
So, just bend over and learn to like it?

By acceptance, I don't mean embracing what others are trying to dump on you. I mean accepting others for what they are.
So, accept that they’re dirtbags trying to dump crap on you and be fine with it?
That's pretty much what I mean, but I won't even go as far as to say they're all dirtbags. They may be, or they may have a perspective that's so different than yours that you just can't relate to it at all. And I wouldn't say, "fine with it". Its just that you've probably got better, more constructive things to do with your time than chase down every person who attempts to humiliate you and try to set 'em straight.
My OP never mentions people. Lots of humiliations aren’t perpetrated by people at all. They just happen. I want to know if it’s random, or if there’s a pattern. That’s the essence of the OP.
My point was that humiliations aren't perpetrated at all. They are felt, and - being the superior beings that we are with our opposing thumb - we can learn to control our feelings.
A proper quantity of humility will generally deflect both planned and random attempts at humiliation...
Unless you’re Job, I’m guessing most people have a limit.
Humiliation is a moment to learn about oneself. Hopefully, to be more humble.
In regards to the OP; yes and yes
Ah, the age old question:
...Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take Arms against a Sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them:
