It’s All About Integrity

According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary site, integrity is defined in three different ways including three different summary words; incorruptibly  soundness, and completeness. Most often the word integrity is used when speaking about people who hold high morals and values about their own lives and the world around them. I am not sure I would consider myself to be someone with a high integrity level, but I do believe this quality can be very important to self-worth. It is important to have strong opinions and positions in your life in order to discover who are you as a person and where you want to go in life. It is also extremely important to feel complete with yourself, that you are in a state of content with yourself. Integrity is a characteristic that will most likely come into play later in life, such as politics or personal decisions. It is important to have integrity so that you can hold your own in these types of situations where an important decision is to be made. Integrity is something that must be learned and practiced though, it can not just happen over night. I believe it takes various experiences and situations to develop that feeling of completeness and probably would take a long amount of time to obtain. Integrity allows you to be confident in yourself, who you are, and what you want which is something young adults often struggle with, which leads me to believe integrity is something young adults should begin focusing more on in order to better themselves and strengthen their positions for the future.
