Integrity has been called the foundation of all happiness. It is also the cornerstone of any solid relationship and the foundation on which a successful and thriving marriage is built. Masculine integrity is often not about how brave a man is or how straight he is. It’s about treating others the way they deserve, and it’s about respecting yourself, your decisions, your friends, and your family.

Trustworthiness is another valuable trait you should seek to offer. We always want to be around someone who we can trust. Trust is a bond that allows you to build long-term relationships on honesty and faith. When a man keeps his word he offers safety to those around him because what he says is always true.

Emotional health is key to any relationship and to the long game of building and maintaining them. If a person in your life is emotionally unhealthy, there are telltale signs that something is wrong. Others may try to use you for personal gain without regard to your needs or wants. There may be little or no concern for your thoughts and feelings.

Insecurity is another challenge is to manage. If you are around other people too much, they become a source of anxiety and stress for you. This is bad news for you because you are allowing people around you to make you miserable. The next challenge is to manage this feeling of anxiety and stress. If there are constant battles and challenges in your relationships, this is yet another sign that something is amiss.

Last but certainly not least, honesty is a valuable trait to seek in a man. Honesty is one of the most important values that add value to a man’s character. When a man knows he is true to himself, he is also true to the people with whom he chooses to associate. Integrity is the road to self-acceptance and acceptance of one’s self and others. To be honest, is a gift to everyone around you; it adds value to your life and the lives of those around you.

It does take a strong will to keep commitments and honor what you have committed to while also living up to the same commitment. A man who cheats on a woman is showing the world that he is not deeply in love with her but only using her for sex. To live with healthy masculine energy, you must keep your commitments to yourself.
