We are judged by our character. People may like or hate us for whom we are. Start by being good to yourself first, in order to set a good example to others.

Character is to become aware of the SELF; live every moment with full conscious. Our biggest enemy is our lack of self control, because of which we become victim of decisions that we regret later; to be able to get control of our senses, we need to lead a life of moderation and control our desires. The only way to allow our true SELF to emerge is by practicing restrain. Do not allow your senses to delude you overshadow your real character.
Anindya, Roy

Character is demonstrated by our actions. What do your actions say about your character?

Tolerance: We need to communicate respectfully with those we strongly disagree with.

Character is doing what's right even when no one's looking. So that way if someone asks who messed this up you can say with a clear conscience that you didn't do it.
