Integrity means honesty, trustworthiness, and fairness.
When I live my life by those principles, I am constantly being true to myself and have a feeling of inner peace and a strong sense of purpose.
When I choose to be truthful, I know that I am helping others to be honest. As I help them be honest with themselves, I empower them to become better people.
I believe that truthfulness is one of the greatest gifts we can share. We must be willing to be transparent in our relationships, and we can share only what we need to, and we should be open about what we think, what we believe, or how we feel.
If I can speak honestly, I can build stronger relationships and gain respect. I learn how to communicate well with myself and others.
Being truthful helps me to grow spiritually. Truthfulness opens my mind to higher truth.
I may also discover something wonderful and unexpected. When I am truthful, I gain freedom from fear, and my soul becomes free of the chains of lies, deceit, and dishonesty.
I am liberated from the prison that is built out of fear. I keep my promises, honor agreements, and try to be fair in my dealings. I recognize when someone else needs to hear honesty. I refuse to say things behind another person’s back.
Today, I honor my commitments and hold myself accountable for my actions. If I make a mistake, I acknowledge it quickly. I let go of anger and forgive myself and others. I do this to be happy and to love.
