Integrity is the quality of being true to self. We can also think of it as being in alignment with your higher self or soul. A lack of integrity brings fragmentation of the self. Think about it. If you do things that go against your conscience, your better judgement, or your personal values, this creates stress, and something called cognitive dissonance. This is when your thoughts are in conflict with one another, or your heart is in conflict with your head, or any way in which you are not in unity with yourself. There is a reason why one of the most essential spiritual maxims is: Know Thyself. Your responsibility is to live as your true self, in alignment with your values and purpose. Integrity is one of the core ways that you learn how to love yourself. To not act against yourself, and to make choices that you feel are right for you even though they may appear to be unliked or unpopular. To tell the truth when lying might be easier. This is how we are ok with ourselves at the end of the day.
