“It’s Not Easy
Let’s be honest. Ethics is not for wimps. It’s not easy being a good person.
It’s not easy: to be honest when it might be costly. To keep inconvenient promises or to put
principles above comfort.
It’s not easy: to stand up for your beliefs and still respect differing viewpoints.
It’s not easy: to be on time. To control anger. To be accountable for attitudes and actions. To refrain
from gossip and hurtful words. To tackle unpleasant tasks. Or to sacrifice the now for later.
It’s not easy: to bear criticism and learn from it without getting angry. To take advice. Or to
admit error.
It’s not easy: to really feel sorry and apologize sincerely. To accept an apology graciously. Or to
forgive and let go.
It’s not easy: to not complain. To stop feeling like a victim. To avoid disheartening cynicism. To
make the best of every situation. Or to be cheerful for the sake of others.
It’s not easy: to share. To be consistently kind. To think of others first. To judge generously. To
give the benefit of the doubt. To give without concern for gratitude. Or to be grateful.
It’s not easy: to fail and still keep trying. To learn from failure. To risk failing again. To start over.
To lose with grace. Or to be glad for the success of another.
It’s not easy: to avoid excuses. To resist temptations. Or to listen to our better angels.
No, being a person of character is not easy. That’s why it’s such a lofty goal and an admirable
achievement.”
