Having integrity means doing the right thing in a reliable way…even when NO one is watching. It’s a personality trait that we admire, since it means a person has a moral compass that doesn’t waver. It literally means having “wholeness” of character
There have been many eye opening moments in my past 5 years.
The biggest and the most distressing was my lesson in Integrity or lack thereof.
I was a worldly person…right?
I had lived in 3 continents by the time I was 28…and visited many more countries before and after that.
My ONLY first hand memorable experience with Integrity were my Dad, my 2 brothers and Robbie. And it was a positive experience.
I had come across many liars, thieves, cheaters and con people in my life…but they had never affected my personal space.
I was safe…I lived in a protective bubble.
I had no contrast in my personal experience.
My first personal experience with a person who lacked Integrity was at 51.
I consider myself lucky for that…or do I?
My lack of personal experience with such people was to my detriment.
It rattled my sensibilities to the core…that single experience has tainted my trust in humankind.
