We need more people with integrity. It seems like nowadays, more and more people are putting on a good show, but once no one is watching, they show their true colors.
What if instead of showing we are good people when there are other people around us, we try to be good people and do the right thing every time, even when no one else is watching. We should be good and helpful at heart. Goodness and kindness should be our nature.

“Living with integrity means: Not settling for less than what you know you deserve in your relationships. Asking for what you want and need from others. Speaking your truth, even though it might create conflict or tension. Behaving in ways that are in harmony with your personal values. Making choices based on what you believe, and not what others believe.”
