Integrity means a lot to me. One either has it or they don't.

But no one thinks they are doing the wrong thing... you make a point; the other person makes a countering point. Forever and forever making and defending points. For what reason?

I'm not saying anyone is right or wrong, just that we can usually tell what kind of a person they are by what they stand for or fight for.

I don't have a scrap of integrity. I'm a coward and an agreer to one person and then a backstabber when it's convenient.

YOU are the one with integrity, heart, forgiveness (if deserved) and a willingness to fight tooth and nail when defending a friend. (clap)

Thanks, I try to be kind to everyone, but sometimes they really try my patience and integrity. Sometimes my loyalty gets me in trouble, though, but I will always defend a friend.

I would go down fighting for my family, I think most of us would. That's loyalty and integrity. If someone wouldn't even stand up for their family, I would say that person has no integrity or anything else.

What I wonder is how, and by what/whose standard(s) in today's crazy, postmodern, morally-relativistic loving world it is to be objectively decided who is the "toxic" one trying to control, and who is the one with the "integrity".

IMO, it can be a very tricky process.

That's up to each individual to make that determination. I can tell what kind of person you are by your comments and how you treat people. We don't always agree and that's fine, it's not either good or bad.

So what you conclude is that the same person can be seen as "toxic" by one observer, and seen as one of "integrity" by another. Thus, it's all subjective. Merely human opinion, and those opinions can be formed from a variety of influences.

As far as what anyone thinks of me, I really don't care. It's up to them - period. And I don't mean that to sound so uncaring. It's just that it is what it is when it comes to someone's POV of me.
I know what I think of me, and it's way less than I think of folks I admire and trust (yes, some folks I do trust, most I don't.)
I know what God thinks of me, and that's as a wretch according to his standard (which is really the only standard that matters, yet no one can, nor has achieved it other than Jesus Christ himself IMO, which is essentially the need for our redemption to God found only in Christ, aka, the "Gospel").

Apologies for the rant.

Who makes the decision as to what is right or wrong to fight for?
Me? The OP? Donald Trump? God? This post sounds pretty bigoted and judgmental to me. JMO

All one can do, is the best one can do. And if, when one lays their head down each night, they can know they did no harm, and maybe did some one else some good, then....it doesnt matter what any one else thinks.
