I'm writing new article, this time about loyalty.
Loyalty can mean different things to different people, but everyone has the basic idea what loyalty really is.
According to the book definition, loyalty is faithfulness or a devotion to a person or cause. However, we all know loyalty is much more than that. Loyalty towards someone is when you know in your heart that you always stand by someone's side, and that person knows in his/her heart that he/she can trust you always. Being loyal is the ability to never fail someone, especially when they really need you. Loyalty is standing by someone's side through the good, the bad, and the ugly. And loyalty is always different for people, but it’s basically based on the foundation of trust.
Then there’s how loyalty is formed. In a way, there are levels of loyalty, the way I see it. From the start of a friendship, there is a little bit of loyalty to your newly acquired friend. You want to build a bond of trust so that friendship can become better. As it does become a closer friendship, the level of trust changes a bit. You’re relied on more, and you start to be there for your friend. Best friends in a way have the highest loyalty towards each other, because they always have each other’s back no matter what. Also, that’s when the level of trust becomes very unstable, because your actions affect everything.
Loyalty doesn’t limit to just friends however. Someone who is loyal can also be someone who is steadfast in allegiance or duty. What that means is that you have a sense of responsibility for your duties. Duties is not limited to just work. Being there for someone in desperate need of help can be a duty. Loyalty now is mostly seen in people.
Overall, loyalty has many meanings. Loyalty has many causes and effects attached to it. Loyalty is a lovely characteristic to achieve. I know for one fact, that I am a loyal person.
As long as you are comfortable with telling someone your inner thoughts, I don’t think it is a matter.
We never betray our friends. That will stay like that in the future.
Macedonian friends, you can COUNT on US.
Our Phalanx is rising again!
