Integrity being true to ourselves and being honest, upright, and decent in our dealings with others. Our thoughts and words are in line with each other; our actions align with our principles. Integrity demands courage. Developing integrity requires internal honesty, because we can’t be honest with others unless we are honest with ourselves. People of integrity can be counted on to stand up for what is right, even if it is unpopular and to do the right thing even when there is no one around to see. Integrity allows other people to trust us because they know that we value our commitments and seek to live by them.
