I understand you...


Still, it would be nice if you also would pick one of those from the patchwork that have not been already taken. This is how it goes here. =0/ We have also done the same.

George, here is an updated list, so you can see which "attributes" are taken and which are still available.

I'd say honesty..but not just to others..but to yourself as well, in my opinion (and I too had that problem) honesty to oneself is very important..in being hoenst with yourself you also get to know yourself better and to love and respect yourself...and only when loving yourself can you accept the love from others..

Truthfulness - that strikes a chord with me from the available squares.

Truthfulness in the short-term can be painful sometimes, but in the long run, it is the only way to be. It gives everyone/everything a more firm footing from which to experience the rest.

Integrity

Integrity was the word I was initially attracted to. But then I thought I should do a bit of research into what it may actually mean. Maybe I take it to mean something a bit different than many might. So, I researched enough to satisfy myself.

I think of integrity as in simplest form being true to oneself, one's own set standards, regardless of circumstances. The best examples I found were:

Persons of integrity may in fact act immorally—though they would usually not know they are acting immorally. Thus one may acknowledge a person to have integrity even though that person may hold importantly mistaken moral views.
(love this because it didn't confine integrity within sociatal standards but within those of the individual)

...the most philosophically important sense of the term ‘integrity’ relates to general character. Philosophers have been particularly concerned to understand what it is for a person to exhibit integrity throughout life. Acting with integrity on some particularly important occasion will, philosophically speaking, always be explained in terms of broader features of a person's character and life. What is it to be a person of integrity? Ordinary discourse about integrity involves two fundamental intuitions: first, that integrity is primarily a formal relation one has to oneself, or between parts or aspects of one's self; and second, that integrity is connected in an important way to acting morally, in other words, there are some substantive or normative constraints on what it is to act with integrity.
(love the first intuition)

Ordinary intuitions about integrity tend to allow both that integrity is a formal relation to the self and that it has something to do with acting morally. How these two intuitions can be incorporated into a consistent theory of integrity is not obvious, and most accounts of integrity tend to focus on one of these intuitions to the detriment of the other.


Research found here: http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/integrity/
