Integrity is honest, pure, sincere, good…
The opposite is deceit, dishonesty, disgrace.
I know which I’d rather be known for.
Integrity is knowing your worth. It’s not about being big headed, obnoxious or vain – it’s about having the quiet confidence of someone who understands who they are and more importantly, their value.
⭐️ When you have integrity you know you will do a good job, regardless of who notices.
⭐️ When you have integrity, you don’t make promises you won’t keep. If you say you will do something, you do it.
⭐️ When you have integrity you look after yourself because you understand that an empty cup cannot sustain anyone else.
⭐️ When you have integrity you treat others how you expect to be treated, but you also show them how to treat you – you have boundaries, standards and expectations.
⭐️ When you have integrity you are not easily swayed, but listen to your internal compass, following the path that’s right for you despite what others may be doing.
⭐️ When you have integrity you don’t need to speak ill of anyone else because you can appreciate that everyone is on their own path and you are not in the habit of comparing yourself to others.
In the quest to be your own kind of beautiful having integrity is knowing how important you are.
And that is a beautiful thing.

I think this one is vital to being a fulfilled person. If you don’t have the confidence to be honest, than I can’t see how you can be happy.
I totally agree. You have to be authentic – otherwise you become just like everyone else and you are far more special than that 💛

Absolutely. Plus it’s exhausting trying to smoosh down your true self! 🙂
Lovely post Nicky. I totally agree to all of the definitions and I like the first one the most. Most people do good and are honest only when they know that are being watched, which is sad…we should keep doing the right thing, and do the best that we can in anything we do whether we have a audience or not. At the end of the day, our number 1 audience is ourselves. ☺
You are so right. If you’re not true to yourself you can never be truly authentic. To like yourself is an amazing feeling – but it needs to be worked on every single day x
