Should I put a period at the end of the first quote within this sentence?

We often hear, "That's not me." or "I wasn't raised that way."

OR should it read:

"That's not me" or "I wasn't raised that way."

If you put a period before conjunctions, it is no longer a compound sentence. The sentence ends with a period.

You need to put a comma instead of a period.

We often hear, "That's not me," or "I wasn't raised that way."

Hope it helps.
