Integrity is something a lot of us are missing in this world. We put on a good show but once everyone turns around we let our true colors show and that’s a serious issue.
Instead of being a good person when people are around and when they’re not many of us let our wants get the better of us. We turn into sneaky monsters who just want to use others for our own personal gain and to be honest, that needs to change. Sure, we should be true to who we are, but we should also work to ensure that who we are is a positive and helpful person.
Integrity for those who do not know is the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles. Those with integrity stand up for what they believe in despite the odds before them and are always willing to go the extra mile when needed. Sure, you’ve probably heard that word used a time or two but have you ever actually seen anyone who lived it?
The more integrity you work to cultivate within yourself and help others to find in themselves the better. Instead of being one person with others around and another when you’re all alone, let your true self shine. Below I am going to go over some of the most important/amazing things about those with integrity, do these things seem present in anyone you know?
