Ethics and being a grown-up

So many are under the false pretense that being a grown-up means abandoning our ideals and moral code in order to make it in the ‘real world’.
The fallacy in this is the belief that the ‘real world’ is a cold, scary place, where good ‘ole fashioned “goodness” isn’t seen or appreciated when in fact it’s full of people, just like you and me, who hopefully recognize and appreciate the good in others.
Our own personal set of ethics make us who we are. Carrying those ethics into everything we do, our personal and professional lives, our relationships, and how we manage the day-to-day are the foundation for strong, meaningful relationships that last.
Trust, credibility, reliability, all of these things can’t, and shouldn’t, be built overnight yet they are the invaluable assets that make us who we are and who we will become.
