Shaping Our Character

“The greatest way to live with honor in this world is to be what we pretend to be.”


Most of us live the majority of our lives for other people–trying to do what they want us to do, aiming to meet their expectations, and hoping to be seen as we’d like them to see us.
Trying to sway perception is exhausting and oftentimes fruitless because we can never dictate what other people think.

We don’t get to control our reputation; we only get to shape our character.
