I is for Integrity: Cheating

Cheat 1

Some people cheat their way through life.

They cheat on tests in school.

Cheat on girlfriends/boyfriends and then graduate to cheating on wives/husbands.

They cheat on their taxes.

Taxi drivers cheat on the road, by cutting in front of us.

Politicians use the public purse for their personal purposes.

People use their connections to cut the queue so that they can get ahead of everyone.

You cheat on your diet.

People cheat in relationships because… of whatever reason they use to justify their actions.

And then we say, it happens, as long as I don’t find out or get caught.

Unbeknown to many people, unseen in the background, as you cheat and seem like you are getting ahead, fate quietly diminishes your success.

Publicly you will be a success, but privately your soul will distance itself from you.

When your soul distances itself from you, you become empty.

Cheating only cheapens you, not the person, you are cheating on. They are a gem.

When we destroy something around us we destroy ourselves. If we cheat another, we cheat ourselves. 

You are cheating on yourself, because in the long term, you will lose something precious and you will left with something worthless.

Cheating is throwing away a diamond and picking up a rock.
