How much does loyalty mean to you? Do you live by the loyalty code? Are you Loyal?
Time and time again, I hear people say “loyalty outweighs everything” or “blood makes you related but loyalty makes you family”. I have to say that my loyalty lies with my family and closest friends. I’m not a confrontational person, however, if you disrespect them then you just disrespected me. I have their back and they have mine so the loyalty is reciprocated.
What about those who show loyalty but it’s not given back? We all have been there. That family member who always needs you but turns ship when you need them; that childhood friend who always disappears when dark times happen; the “love” of your life who claims they hold you down but is disrespectful on many levels; the employer who promised a promotion but it never happened. It truly hurts and is frustrating.
Stay true to those who are true to you back. Like Drake says ” know yourself, know your worth”. How do you Know someone is loyal? They are loyal when you don’t have any doubts in your heart about him or her.
