Someone once said, "Integrity is who you are when no one is looking."  That's an intriguing thought. The word "integrity" comes from the same word source as the word "integrated." Therefore, to be a person of integrity, it means my life is totally and completely integrated. It means my life is the same inside and out.  I am not "disintegrated."  I'm the same person publicly and privately.  There is no disconnect in who I am.

I once heard my wife say to someone that I was the same person in public as I am at home.  Nothing could have made my heart feel better than to hear her say this.  In essence, she was saying I was a person of integrity.  It's who I desire to be.

Integrity is who we are when no one is looking.  It should be our heart's desire all the days of our lives.  It means we have an integrated personality.  And an integrated personality is a healthy person!
