I stay true to my values, regardless of the circumstances
My most important mission in life is to stay true to myself. I put a lot of worth on committing to the things I believe in. Even when unpopular, I choose to protect and uphold my beliefs because they keep me honest.
Each day I encounter family, friends, and acquaintances. I am conscious of differences in thoughts and actions and respect them. But I avoid adopting them just for validation.
When family members make questionable decisions, I hold them accountable. I remind them that it is my responsibility to be forthright even with my family. I avoid viewing their decisions as acceptable when they are misaligned with my beliefs.
I let my friends know the lines I am unwilling to cross. I am happy that they respect my point of view. Genuine friendships are able to withstand tension that comes from differences in opinion. My true friends appreciate me even when our thoughts differ. Our diversity helps to keep our relationship interesting.
Sometimes my coworkers cause new employees to feel out of place. I avoid joining them by helping new persons to feel welcome.
Today, I am happy that I have values to help me make wise decisions. I know that being true to myself always pays off in the end.
