Something I'm Struggling With

I was recently talking to a fellow mom about the values I want to instill in my Lil Lovebird and my top priority is integrity. There are so many other values that build off of it, and I think it's been most important for me for as long as I can remember. Lately though I've been having challenges with people across various dynamics of my life from personal to professional lacking integrity specifically, not following through on things and over-promising and under-delivering. CONSTANTLY. It's not always as easy as just cutting folks off (although some cutting off is in progress), and when I notice trends like this that touch all facets of my life I tend to turn internal and question if there's something in me that attracts this type of behavior. I don't have an answer, but it is making me feel like I want to be even more insular, protective and guarded than I already am. However, I do know that I'm not going to let it change my emphasis on integrity - I will always be a woman of my word.

Do you struggle with similar issues? What's your most important value?
