Integrity is a very important part of having a relationship. It is very important to keep the agreements that you make in a relationship. You have to keep your word if you are going to have a relationship with anyone. Integrity and keeping your agreements are important in every relationship. It doesn’t matter if your relationship is a romantic one or a business relationship, integrity is crucial. If you don’t keep your agreements, then other people will learn that you are not a good person and will shame you and avoid you.
- It takes far more self-discipline to listen calmly to serious criticism than most people have.
- Although everyone wishes to avoid shame it can prove to be a necessary bridge to rebuilding trust that has been lost.
- If you do break trust and dishonor agreements you must accept the penance of others anger and pain if you wish to repair what you have broken.
“You can honor your values through your words and actions to live in a way that is vitally important, be a leader, and be an important person in your work.”
