This one is called a Blue Pansy. It is a common butterfly of the eastern half of South Africa, a fast flyer often seen in aerial "dogfights" with other butterflies, frequently spotted in gardens feeding on flowers; all year in warmer areas.

Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
