Yesterday we talked about finding the morals, truths, and integrities that resonate with your heart. Doing this will help you find emotional strength. I suggested you write them down in a list. Interestingly, I have never done this, so I decided to do so. Today I want to share what I found when I listed these things out.
First, I went to the dictionary and looked up each of the words morals, truth, and integrity. Here’s what I found.
Moral is right or wrong in conduct, the principles of right or wrong. Here are the morals I discovered which fit for me:
- respect and tolerance of others and self
- kindness and compassion shown to all
- approach all with love
- be true to myself above all
- promote peace
Truth is the quality of the state of being true, it is honesty, loyalty, trustworthiness, and genuineness, and it is the facts of realness. My truths that I discovered are:
- My mission is to be of service.
- I strive to be kind to all.
- On a daily basis, I am a better and stronger person.
- I am a strongly moral person.
- I am intelligent, clever, and creative.
- I am a deep thinker and feeler.
Integrity is defined as the ways in which I am of sound moral principle, up-right, honest, and sincere. I came up with a few ways in which I show integrity. These are:
- I do not knowingly hurt others or myself.
- I am honest in my dealings with others about who I am.
- I am transparent about my struggles and my triumphs.
- I build others up rather than tear them down.
These are the things which resonate with my heart, which advance my sobriety, and which bring me peace. They provide me with emotional strength. I am curious what you came up with and invite you to share by leaving a comment.
