May POWerful Word – INTEGRITY – Week 3
Does anyone know what “integrity” has to do with “being ourselves?” Sometimes people are afraid to be themselves around friends. What would make someone afraid to be themselves (i.e. afraid to be different or that people will laugh at them)? The most important thing you can do for yourself is to be yourself– 100% of the time. There is nobody exactly like you! What 3 words describe you? What are your favorite things to do? Who do you feel that you can be yourself with- – and don’t need to pretend to be anything else but exactly YOU? When we are completely ourselves and stay true to who we are, it’s called being “authentic.” How can being “authentic,” show others that we have “integrity” (i.e. true to selves, not pretending/lying)? When we are authentic, it shows we have integrity & confidence in who we are.
If you have time: Have you (or someone you know) ever felt pressure to be someone other than who you are?
