How to Live and Act With Integrity When You Feel Attacked

50: How to Live and Act With Integrity When You Feel Attacked

How do you react when you feel attacked? Do you panic and lash out, or do you stay grounded and true to yourself?

Living and acting with integrity when you feel scared or attacked is not an easy thing to get through, but when you know who you are you also know how to act in a way that is true to your values. 

I’ve been dealing with this in a big way this year, and I realized that if I need to hear this, somebody else probably does too. I want you to know that you’re not alone. 

The old me would have been extremely reactive and felt the need to attack back, but that’s not who I am anymore. By going through this process of rediscovering who I am and what my values are, I’ve learned how to handle difficult situations with integrity, and you can too. 

In This Episode, You’ll Discover:

  • How we tend to react when we feel vulnerable
  • The importance of maintaining trust in yourself 
  • The beauty of acting in a way that is true to who you are
  • How to avoid being impulsive and reactive  
  • What it looks like to show up with integrity
  • How to stay focused on what you can control
  • Why it’s so important to know your values 
  • The most important thing you need to know to get through hard times 

If you feel like you don’t know who you are anymore, that’s where you need to start. There is joy in knowing who you are, and it will guide you as you try to make decisions with integrity.
