Being forthright and honest, always doing what is right in the eyes of God and your own conscience.
Oh! I wrote one huge hub on that recently..
For me it is an internal journey where I am integrated as a person and there is no conflict with my internal belief system and my actions ..
To adhere to a set of morals, or principles, in a complete and undivided way. Regardless of the opinions of those around you, and without compromise to get along, or get ahead.
I've always taken integrity to mean congruency between words and actions.
BEING your word.
Integrity is doing the right thing whether or not anyone is watching you.
Like sofs, I wrote a Hub on integrity once too (but a long time ago).
Anyway, to me it's being trustworthy, "solidly of good character", honest, and always trying to do what one thinks is the right thing to do (in terms of having "good character"). Respecting and caring about others (in any number of ways) is a big part of integrity too. I think, provided integrity isn't accompanied by the less appealing trait, self-righteousness, it may be one of the biggest sources of having good self-esteem, no matter what other flaws/weaknesses a person has. It also (most of the time) makes life a lot less complicated, because it makes a person feel solid and strong, provides a guidepost for choices, but also means a person can just be himself and not worry about having any questionable actions "found out". One other note about integrity: The nice thing is it's available to anyone who chooses to have it/use it. Other positive things in life (character-wise, personality-wise, looks-wise) are sometimes a matter of luck-of-the-draw. Integrity (one of the most important, useful, and self-esteem-building things there are) is something anyone can have - just for the deciding to have it.
Honesty and the courage to stand up for what is right, no matter what.

I am not currently in a relationship, but I want to have an open relationship in my next relationship. Until recently I was not a fan of open relationships but I have come to realize that one person cannot satisfy all of my needs and vice versa. Instead, of being in a relationship and knowing one...

One of my short stories contains very strong language. Simple because that's the way we spoke in that time and place. I've put in some asterisks in the relevant words and a warning at the beginning. Ads have still been disabled and I'm fine with that because I don't go for many ads anyway. But I...

What are your thoughts on Transgender and the U.S. Military?I just cannot settle on a right or wrong here. It seems that morally both sides can be argued. Medical conditions are perfectly OK to exclude some people from some vocations. I wonder if there is a real rational basis for this exclusion....
