In the first place … What does integrity really mean?
Without looking in a dictionary, but just going on my own experience . . .
Integrity means a person is honest and honorable, keeps his promises, tells the truth, and can be counted on to do the right thing, even when it is hard or uncomfortable. Such a person does not betray friends or let down people…. But it’s about more than just telling the truth.
Integrity is about keeping promises and doing what you tell others you’re going to do, as well as what you tell yourself you’re going to do.
People with integrity show up and follow through. Their word is good.
They are the people who maintain sanity in their brain, heart and body at the most insane times of Life and basically never compromise on their principles and values even in the toughest times. One clearly needs to be strong both emotionally and mentally to maintain his/her integrity. It is quiet hard indeed.
Why is integrity so rare these days?
