Loyalty And Betrayal; I Call Them 'Mistakes'

Tell me guys, isn't it true that every single one of us wants loyalty. We crave for it. We want our family, friends, and partners to be and stay loyal to us, yes? But what is loyalty? How do we define loyalty; the word that we always say, discuss, argue, and think most of the time?

The quality of being faithful, supportive, and the feeling of allegiance. It's funny actually that we can define this word in a lot of ways, but can't realize that the more we do according to the definitions, the more we betray the trust built.

You stick with one person, you are loyal. You do whatever it takes to stay loyal, even though sometimes it hurts your pride, you are loyal, but betraying yourself. You stick to your own belief and way of life, you are loyal. You keep on assuring that you're not dumping your own self, you are loyal, but somewhere in the middle, you betray the people around you. So which part of that can we call 'loyalty'? To be faithful to yourself, or to be trustworthy to those who believe in you?

Don't say both, because trust me, there will be one day when you realize that keeping both is simply not possible, and you've got to choose one out of two. And you realize that by choosing, one side will get hurt. It's either you or them.

To me, loyalty and betrayal are just mistakes that we make every minute of our lives. The definition keeps changing. Today loyalty means to you, tomorrow it can be to others. You can't always be the right person, and so can't they. And we've got to learn. We must learn.

"Somewhere along your way to live, you'll make thousands of mistakes, and you'll know that everything changes. Whatever definitions you have at that moment of mistakes, they'll change, and one day they'll come back. All you got to do is learn."

a wise man once asked me "which would you prefer, passion or loyalty?"

i chose passion. loyalty is very subjective. sometimes it's up to the individual to actually define how loyal you want your significant other to be.

passion on the other hand, makes the relationship interesting and more worthwhile =)

To me, loyalty and honesty are closely tied twins. You can stay loyal by also staying honest -- honest about who you are and what you want. It's not betrayal if you're honest about it. It can still be loyalty, even if you choose to be faithful to yourself instead of another.

Igniz July 11, 2009 at 12:46 PM  

judiene: haah, so sudden:P

i'm no picasso: hm, your words are true, indeed. i guess that's another point of view that i need to consider. thanks:)

To err is human. Don't b afraid to make mistakes 'cause it serves as a platform towards being a better you. Don't make stupid mistakes, tho!
