a. What does strengthen integrity mean? This means to do what we know deep inside is right. It means to be honest and true to ourselves and to others.
b. What does it mean to come out of your comfort zone? This means to do things we've never done before and take positive risks.

5. What are ways to build someone else's self-esteem?
Smile when you see me; call me by my name; listen to me when I talk; let me know that you missed me when I was absent; recognize my own special talents, even if they do not show up on my report card; give me a chance to succeed in at least one small way each day; praise me when I do something right; if you do not like something that I do, help me understand that you still like me as a person; show me that I have a lot of options for the future, and that I can set my own goals; encourage me to aim high

Soon enough, everything unraveled. I stared in disbelief at the computer screen in front of me. I couldn’t believe the one person who I thought I could always rely on was now slipping away so fast like sand running through a persons fingers. Our fight escaladed, and everything we needed to say to each other poured out from our lips. When I was ready to be done, an IM popped up from Vanessa; an at-the-time friend of mine and a good friend of Vivian’s. She decided to add to the fun by backing up Vivian and making me feel completely worthless.

I stared at the clock, it was 12:30 pm. Twenty minutes remained in this tedious lunch period. I didn’t know how much longer I could endure the conversation. “Yo, so guys…like who else should I invite?” questioned Michelle. Carly perused the list, reading aloud the names scribbled on the cafeteria napkin. “Lets see, well we have Courtney, Nina, Christina, Lucie, Lis, Cassandra….” 12:33 pm; I couldn’t believe the minute hand had only moved a mere 3 minutes worth in the time I had listened to my so-called friends babble about this weekends party. I did my best to ignore there voices, but it was tough. No matter what I told myself, I couldn’t pretend that hearing them make a list for a party without my name on it didn’t hurt.
