faithfulness, dependence, allegiance, attachment, devotion, reliability, submission, homage, bond, resolution, ardor, integrity, support...
I have been told by many a few
that at times I can be "too loyal"
Having support and guidance is very relevant in our daily lives..
we depend upon each other for so many things...
these fulfill and reward us in so many ways...
and physically ...
It is the bottom three that I am the most concerned with tonight!
Being loyal doesn't always have to mean that you agree with someone...side with them...vote for them...cheer for them...agree with them...understand them...follow them...
and do what they say...
Or does it?
I believe there is a fine line between being loyal and understanding loyalty...
One does not necessarily define the other!
They don't always go...hand -in-hand
sometimes you wonder if you made a mistake...if your loyalty got the better of you...perhaps you tuned others out...decided not to listen...or chose that you just wouldn't
hurt someone in the process
Loyalty cannot be blueprinted.
it cannot be produced on an assembly line.
In fact, it can not be manufactured at all,
for its origin is the human heart-
the center of self-respect and human dignity.
It is a force which leaps into being only when conditions are exactly right for it-
and it is a force very sensitive to betrayal
Maurice R. Franks
As an athlete... how do you perceive loyalty...
At what cost do you follow it?
listen to it?
