Umbrella Skill for May is INTEGRITY

At Christ the King, we continue to teach and our students to choose emotional well being!  For the month of May, we will be focusing on the skill of Integrity.

 

WHAT IS INTEGRITY?  Integrity is a skill and takes practice! Integrity is an inner sense of wholeness, where what we do is not separate from our beliefs.  It is about always treating others with care and to always do the right think even when nobody is looking.  Integrity is the skill that helps us match what we do with what we believe in. When our actions don’t match our words, it can have a negative impact on our self-esteem and how honest we are with ourselves and others.

Integrity shows up in the little choices we make every day and can have a big impact on our relationships and how trustworthy we are. For example, if we say it is important to look out for our friends but then we often talk behind their backs, there is a mismatch in what we say and what we are doing and this can affect our wellbeing. Integrity helps take ownership over our actions even when we make mistakes and aren’t perfect and this is empowering. It may feel easy to blame others when things go wrong but that actually leaves us feeling like the victims of our lives instead of feeling strong and in charge of wellbeing. Integrity helps us to genuinely accept honest feedback from others and feel proud of who we are.

 

RESEARCH BASED OUTCOMES OF INTEGRITY
1. Improves the quality of our lives
2. Betters our performance
3. Increases oxytocin levels in our brain – the hormone that helps us connect with others
4. Reduces our anxiety
5. Increases our trustworthiness and likelihood of making honest choices
6. Helps us make and keep good friends
7. Improves our credibility

It isn’t always easy to use integrity. It often feels better to exaggerate our strengths and hide our weaknesses, hoping that people won’t judge us. Stories of integrity show us what it means to be honest, even if the truth doesn’t feel perfect. These stories are about people standing up for what they believe in even when that isn’t easy to do.
