Integrity and Respect

Integrity is not a conditional word. It doesn’t blow in the wind or change with the weather. It is your inner image of yourself, and if you look in there and see a man who won’t cheat, then you know he never will.
John D. MacDonald

During the course of a relationship rather that be between a friend, family member, acquaintance, or a potential boyfriend/girlfriend a person is given automatic respect. Respect to who they are, what they stand for, how they carry themselves, and respect for those close to them. When that respect is lost -even if it is chalked off because of a drunken night (no excuse) – the relationship or potential of one has a dark cloud hanging over it. How long does it take for one to put the pieces of their heart back together when two people have hurt you. Two people who claim they, “had a momentary lapse of judgement”.

I have been told several times that I expect to much from people, am I expecting to much from those I respect?
