Do you feel the more pressure there is on you that the more your integrity is under attack? 

Integrity and your morals is what should get you through these times by sticking with them.  But in the pressure times we like to relax our integrity because it will make the short term easier. 

  What we don’t realize is that some of these short term decisions can affect our long term integrity more than we realize. 

Does pressure cause you to compromise more or does it cause you to stick to your guns?

Many peoples integrity can be totally smashed because of little lapses when they were under pressure.  So next time you feel tons of pressure start focusing more on your integrity and beliefs.  It may make the short term harder but in the long run you will see the benefits.
