    I'm Constantly Feeling Let Down By People Who Don't Keep Their Word... Or Worse

    It has always been ingrained in my personality, that when I say I will do something, meet someone, etc...  to do  otherwise is something that never enters my mind.  Yet, often, I feel like I'm one of a very few who think the same way.  Seems I should have learned by now that...

    In Literature And In Life

    Not always, but habitually I can see straight through most pretenders. I can’t read palms or look into your eyes and tell you all about your future, but, simply give me some time alone with your words, in person or in print and in a brief while, I will see your heart. I’m not...

    I cannot do without Honesty and Integrity in my life, because it leaves out Moral acuity, Principals, and Dignity. All these words could fit under the same definition in a simple world, but we're not so simple! We're a very complex world society attempting to reach a standard...

    In my short time on this App I've notice

    that everyone for some reason lies, or is very deceitful. I can't figure out why though. For most it's like really? I just want just met you, or you me, on the Internet. So what is the point of lying, being manipulative, or deceitful? I've also learned that EP is very good at...

    No matter what we may call it - cover it up to be - or make it look like...the truth is what it is... and always will be. Starting with what is saves time and face!  :-) The ultimate truth may not be obtainable in this life, but stating what we know is so - and living...

    It's so much easier to get along with people if you are honest and live your life with integrity.  To me it's the only way to live a productive life.

    Very Important In Life And Too Me

    Character is doing the right thing when nobody's looking.  There are too many people who think that the only thing that's right is to get by, and the only thing that's wrong is to get caught.  ~ J.C. Watts If you have integrity, nothing else matters.  If you don't...

    I find respect in people

    who aren't afraid of honesty. Saying exactly what's on your mind confidently enough to laugh when you think it's funny and let the emotion take place in your voice when it's there. That's what a real conversation consists of and one day I'll have the confidence to show that...

    Respect and honesty are a necessity.

    Anything else is unacceptable. If you do not have those, what is the point?

    Took my guys out, 9 guys,

    $600 so not too bad. All in the name of relationships and business. I'd like to go bigger, like take a few teams to Vegas, spend a couple of grand, but compliance... In my business, relationships are everything. They had fun and appreciated it, so it's all good.

    and what's your moral mind set!?! What would you do if a store clerk handed you too much change? Do you ever lie to your spouse? Just reviewing my behavior with these two words.

    While They Are Similar,

    they are also opposites, for integrity is earned, while honesty is generated. I think the triad would include TRUST, to be complete.
