Integrity is necessary for interpersonal success, and in order to have integrity, one must honor one’s own promises to others. However, there are those who make promises that are too large for them to keep, so they ultimately fail to deliver on their promises. For such people who end up causing significant amounts of anguish and pain, it is necessary for them to fall down and feel what they have inflicted, and even if they are forgiven, they must keep themselves from telling lies to others.
- In order for one to have integrity, one must keep one’s promises to others.
- People who commit more than they can deliver must fall down and understand their consequences through others’ eyes.
- Retribution through suffering is necessary in order for the lies to cease, as mere forgiveness is insufficient.
“As long as there are people who are isolating them from the consequences of their broken agreements, they don’t have to face how they are letting people down and causing harm.”
