Has Divorce Effected Your Integrity?

Salli's Divorce Support Blog

If integrity is "born when your beliefs and values come together and are consistent with your actions, and it dies when they are not," how is your integrity quotient now that you are divorced?

Are you feeling "unworthy of love, acceptance, or admiration?" Or more importantly, have you "lost your ability to feel those things for others?"

Sometimes guilt and shame come as a result of making poor choices, but sometimes those feelings come simply because we have been through traumatic circumstances. Sometimes integrity returns because we repent, but sometimes we feel a surge of integrity because we forgive.

Feeling a lack of integrity in our life can come for a variety of reasons, but if you are feeling down and out right now as a result of your divorce, I suggest you seek the Lord for answers.

If, for whatever reason, your actions are not reflecting your beliefs and values--your convictions, then take the necessary steps, whether it be though repentance or forgiveness, or both, and align your actions with your beliefs.

Here's a quote from Ghandi: "A man cannot do right in one department of life whilst he is occupied in doing wrong in any other department. Life is one indivisible whole."

Thanks, Matt Baldwin for some great ideas today.
