Friends and integrity should be a healthy combo we strive to find in all our connections. But when things go bad, hurt us – how can we decide if a friend has integrity or not? We produced a radio show for Super Friend Groups Talk Radio on Paula Deen’s story. Where were her friends when she needed them most? Her family stepped forward, but her friends were absent.
Friends and Integrity: Paula Deen & Alan Chambers
Co-host Angelica Holiday and I discuss two recent apologies in the news on our blogtalk radio show. We explore how two different personalities portray their integrity through publicly asking forgiveness. Paula Deen and Alan Chambers were both in the news at the same time. Their approaches to their publicity was very different, revealing their differences in approach to volatile issues.
Real friends stories / different outcomes
During my travels I’ve met hundreds of people who became friends during my life. Friend integrity is a must for healthy, close friendships. I will discuss how one friend stayed in my life even after a parting of the ways because of her business integrity; while another revealed her fears through displaying overly competitive behavior. Get the facts and be kind, because our philosophy is not to reject friends but decide how the work within your friend network.
