“Personal Integrity is about setting standards and your choices, responsibilities, and commitments.”-Bill Russell Life sends us down a road of uncertainty. it is quite obvious that we never really know what comes next. There have been many moments in my life and I’m sure to come where I expect one thing and in return encounter something I never imagined. Growing up we all face many downfalls that can cause us to lose confidence in ourselves. Whether it’s not getting the grade we thought we deserved, or the potential attraction of someone we like, or even a job we believed we were best qualified for. Regardless what we thought could happen, it never exactly worked out that way. What I have discovered is regardless what the future holds; there are certain things in this life we can’t neglect to admit. Those things are the personal feelings that we have with in. In my opinion I believe the way I administer myself is how others view me in society. In order for myself to feel confident and able to take on any situation in the world, I had to develop my own personal integrity. I use it everyday in the decisions I make and the future I work on creating for myself. The things I stand for number one is I live by the golden rule. Do on to others as you want to be done to you. Other than that I’m straight edge, meaning I don’t drink, smoke, and I’m not promiscuous. The morals I live by have helped me to be a better student in understanding my place in the world and focusing on what is most important to me. Most of my friends like to hang out and get drunk and look for other people to hook up with. That is no my idea of a good time. I spend days reading about social issues and thinking how can I contribute to society. I am only one person but often it isn’t the size of the person but the size of their heart.
