Honor and shame from no condition rise; Act well your part, there all the honor lies.
- Alexander Pope on Character
How do the people around you see you?
Do you project the right character?
If those around you described you what would they say?
I have found over the years that it's times of great pressure which really highlight a persons character and I have learned to be very mindful of my own actions and reactions. For me, character grows as we put ourselves in certain positions, outside our comfort zone giving us a change to learn, grow and mature the character each of us carries.
