Some things in life are clichés until it happens to you.
I have heard people say: one thing led to another and it happened over and over but it never quite got to me. It just seemed like a distant reality.
Very recently, I found myself in a compromising situation and one thing led to another and it nearly happened to me.
I was this close to compromising my values, and convictions and at the time it didn’t even seem like it. The immediate consequence was so tempting, my sense of right, my sense of integrity was numbed.
You know what I learned, who you are under pressure and in the face of temptation says a lot about your character and the fastest way to know if you have grown is to watch your response to pressure.
