“Be as you wish to seem.” Socrates
What this quote means is to be the person that you want the world to see. Don’t create one image for everyone to see which is different than who you really are.
Integrity is about being true to yourself and to those around you. When you present a different image of yourself to others, an image that is different that who you really are, you are not being honest with everyone. In order to be truly honest, the person inside of you should be the same person you present to others.
So in essence, just be yourself. If that is not how you wish others to see you, then your inner self needs to change. If you’re happy with your inner self, then project that out, regardless of who accepts you .
