This theme has come up quite a bit this week during conversations among friends. Amazingly, it wasn’t about politics. 🙂
Loyalty. Unless you don’t associate with anyone, ever, it’s a component of human relationships that we forget we need. Without loyalty, to self and to each other, there’s really not much left.
“If you don’t stand up to your fears, have bravery, loyalty, and you don’t have friends, you’ll never win. You’ll never feel better about yourself.” ~ Luke Benward
“Loyalty is still the same, whether it win or lose the game; true as a dial to the sun, though it not be shined upon.” ~ Samuel Butler
“The moon does not fight. It attacks no one. It does not worry. It does not try to crush others. It keeps to its course, but by its very nature, it gently influences. What other body could pull an entire ocean from shore to shore? The moon is faithful to its nature and its power is never diminished.” ~ Ming-Dao Deng
“If you can’t stand for me, then don’t lean on me.” ~ unknown
Loyalty is a foundation, and it can be bedrock or proof that you’ve built upon the sand.
Find those who are loyal, those to whom you can be loyal. Hold fast to them.
Blessings to you all.
