    What would you give up first?

    Here are the choices:

    A. My Compassion
    B. My Integrity
    C. My Pride

    For me it's compassion without a doubt.

    I think mine would be integrity. Compassion is close, though.

    I think I'm the same as you aj, compassion would definitely be a close second though.

    Well, if I gave up my compassion or my integrity I would have no pride.

    So I guess I'll say pride.

    I'm with Molly Rose.... of course it would work for any of them... give up one and the others suffer... interesting.

    I just feel like compassion could easily be transformed into guilt and could stop you from pursuing your dreams because of your relationships or committments.

    I also don't think that people don't generally enjoy feeling like a charity case.

    But it's a tough one because when your loved is suffering you almost want to suffer for them. But compassion just seems more futile to self worth than the other 2.

    If any of this makes any sense.

    DVM, you should read books by Ayn Rand.

    i would not be proud of myself without compassion or integrity....so pride is out the window.

    Thanks for the heads up MollyRose! Objectivism is really right up my ally.
