“The strength of a family, like the strength of an army, is in its loyalty to each other.”
Are people even loyal anymore?
Loyalty is probably one of the most important aspect of any of my relationships. I am not only speaking about romantic relationships — every relationship. This goes from family to friends as well.
I asked a woman once if she was loyal and her response was “I can be.” Right there, I knew this woman wasn’t for me. If that was answered with anything but a YES, it can not work. I lose respect for people who are not loyal. Loyalty is free.
I have seen people stab another person in the back and I cut them off. It didn’t even have anything to do with me, but I don’t need that type of person in my life. That is negative energy and I would like no parts of it.
I am loyal and will always be loyal. We are fundamentally different if you would not agree. Which is fine — everyone isn’t the same.
My ABC told me something private one day. She didn’t need to tell me not to say anything. That is obvious in my book. I will forever be loyal to her and to others in my life as well. She shared the same thing with a friend of ours too. I didn’t see any red flags with that — figured she was loyal too.
Well, our friend told the new girl she is dating. She has known this girl for a few months. They are very new. I am okay with her telling her own business, but why share someone else’s business? Where is the loyalty? Granted the girl is fucking her and no one else is — but still. That bothered me to the core. Here I am thinking this is a loyal friend. No, it wasn’t my business — again, but still. If you could do it to her, you could do it to me.
I do not think she was being malicious or anything. Maybe she wasn’t thinking? Either way, it just made me think of loyalty.
