Integrity by Anirah Drew
How does a person of Integrity live? A person can live by integrity by being honest, reliable, and having moral principles. I have to say that after reading “ Thank you M’am” I realized that many other people do not live with integrity. They are the people who lie constantly or steal from other people repeatedly . By a guess, you can tell who does and doesn't live with integrity. You should always have integrity or soon people will lose trust in you . When you lie to your best friend saying that you didn't go to that other party but you really did is a good example. The other girl will slowly lose trust in her best friend. Integrity is important to have as a quality in your life.
I don’t live by integrity. I usually lie to my parents or siblings so I won’t get in trouble.
Once I lied to my sister Maya saying that I didn't steal her money but I did so that we could have the same amount as each other. She still doesn't know ‘till this day ( Sorry Maya ). It’s hard for me sometimes to be honest. I lie constantly to hide things or because I don’t want to hurt others. When I speak my mind, I sometimes get ridiculed for it. I don’t live by integrity because I usually lie all the time. I mean I am honest when I need to or feel like it but besides that I lie. I find it harder to tell the truth. It’s really difficult to explain to people that for me being honest is harder. Basically, I am not a girl of integrity.
I want to live a life of integrity. I’m trying to be honest with other people so that I can be a person of integrity. I hope that in the future I can say to myself that I was a person of integrity.
