The core of a virtue comes to light once it has been exercised. If you hold a virtue within your core it’s your responsibility to test it, boil it, place pressure and gauge what is left. Many people feel that when their virtues are being tested that they are being attacked. Perhaps they are. But they should see it as an opportunity to make firm the untested values they hold so dear.
A virtue with no adversary cannot be a virtue for we do not know what will remain of it when it faces it’s contrarian view. It’s a hundred times better for you to probe your own virtues then when everything is going apart, to have your virtues torn apart.
Do not fear a challenge of your virtues. Fear not challenging them.
