Ideally, I want my character and reputation to be aligned.
But we don't have 𝙖𝙣𝙮 control about what others think of us.
For my very first job, I worked at The Golden Chain Gang in the Mall We had a week where our till was getting double checked nightly. There was suspicion about someone stealing from the till.
While I knew it wasn't me, I really hated that there was any question.
You know, I try to be honest, always.
I want to do right by myself, my family, and my team.
Integrity matters to me.

I've done a lot of personal development over the years and I've come to know that I can't worry about how I'm seen by others.
The most important thing is being true to myself and to God.
