The Character! :)

~A man's character is his guardian divinity~

The Oxford dictionary defines it like it?

  1. collective qualities or characteristics that distinguish a person.
  2. A moral strength.
  3. Good reputation

My personal Definition is what you are in the dark. At midnight when there is no one around would you stop at the red light? That is the character. when we do not have a choice or the cost of doing bad or evil is too high, many would stop. But the one who stops at the Red Light when there was no one to enforce, is different. something in him was different from those, who didn't, and the difference is CHARACTER. It might be sounding very philosophical. Let me make it clear to you.

" what we truly are, is only known to self. what people think of us is their perception of what we are? And that can we wrong. what we truly are, we are. Our body is only 1% of what we are; It is just like the packing. 99% of what you truly are, is your inner self.

" Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are."

Hi Dimple:-) Thanks for sharing your story. I agree that a person's character/integrity/authenticity is everything and that it doesn't matter what others think. They don't live in our shoes. I don't agree with the saying that it's not our business what others think of us. I just don't think we can control it and people will think what they will think.

hiya Hina!

i love your thought shared in this write up!

i gree with you character is more of who you are within and vey important but your reputation matters too. what people perceive of you is based on what they experienced when they came in contact with you. While working on staying true to who you are its also important to make sure the expression of your trueself to the world is vehicled accurately and authentically to reflect you and the values you stand for.  :)
