Developing one’s character is a long road, most of the time that road isn’t even paved. It seems the knowledge is brought to us in our challenges and the wisdom lies in what we take from our victories and defeats. Self-victimization amidst life’s conflicts does not serve the purpose of an integrious life. I know how easy it is to want to shift blame for your current problems to some other source, but this passive approach robs from your experiences the opportunity to examine an aspect of your character that requires not only attention, but action. Action is vital to integrity. Without action, integrity doesn’t exist. via Honest Action Through Integrity by Rhiannon Ballard | The Integrious Project.
