Loyalty Importance

Loyalty In Friendships:

Loyalty is one of the most important qualities in a friend. In fact, it’s one of the top priorities in a friendship. When you find someone loyal to you, it’s easier to trust them with your secrets, which can help you open up to them and build a stronger relationship. Loyalty also brings honesty into the play, so you can have someone who is reliable and have your back. Here are a few traits of a loyal friendship:

#1 They are honest with you

A loyal friend may not agree with you all the time. They will have opinions of their own and they will share any perspectives on your life decisions without any hesitations. It’s all good because they aren’t there to join your pity party but rather show you the mirror and help you improve yourself. 

#2 They celebrate your success

A loyal friend never feels jealous of your success or doesn’t try to hamper your growth in any way. In fact, they are happy for you and can’t wait to celebrate any things that happen well in your life. They consider your wins their wins. 

#3 They stand by you

No matter what – your loyal friend will always be there for you. You can always rely on them through your tough times. Even when they don’t agree with your choices, they will be there for emotional support, and never make you feel worse with their “I told you so’s”. 

#4 They try to make up

When you’re close friends with someone for a long time, there are bound to be arguments and fights. A loyal friend makes up after these fights to let the friendship grow afterward and come back stronger. 

#5 They respect your boundaries 

Loyal friends have a value system in place and they always respect others’ boundaries. They will never force you into situations where you’re uncomfortable and understand when you need to be alone. This type of loyalty comes from a very healthy place. 

Loyalty in Partnerships: 

Showing loyalty to a partner is a bit more complicated than in other relationships. It requires a conscious commitment on an everyday basis, which means not flirting with other men/ women, showing off your partner, taking their stand when it matters, not hiding anything from them, not badmouthing them, and standing by them in tough times. While loyalty can encapsulate other things in relationships depending on your needs, this is a common gist of loyalty in a romantic relationship. Here are some ways to be more loyal in a relationship: 

  1. Make A Commitment: Showing loyalty involves a conscious commitment to your partner in every decision you make. This means acknowledging that they are an equal part of your life and taking responsibility for actions, good and bad. 
  2. Practice Communication: Having open & honest communication is essential to talk about your feelings. Setting clear desires and fears goes a long way in cultivating loyalty and making the relationship work. 
  3. Show Gratitude: Having gratefulness for your partner and how they make your life better in a million ways helps you feel peaceful and happier in a relationship whilst reducing the chances of being disloyal. 
  4. Never Keep Any Secrets: Honesty is the foundation of trust, and trust is what builds a healthy and peaceful relationship. Don’t keep any secrets from your partner, or better yet, don’t do anything which makes you feel like you need to hide it from them. 
  5. Ask For Their Expectations: Whilst the general gist of loyalty is similar, it can mean different things for different people. Ask your partner about their expectations and have an open conversation to avoid any future conflicts. 
  6. Stay True To Yourself: Knowing yourself will go a long way in finding a compatible partner and building a happier, stable partnership. Knowing when you need help and when you fall short is essential for a healthy relationship. 
  7. Be Persistent: A long-term relationship is bound to be met by challenging times, whether by external or internal reasons. It’s during this time when it’s important to remember your commitment and safely ride out of difficult situations. 
Loyalty To Family:

Not a lot of people have a healthy family in their life. Those who do, know how much a strong and loyal family can change their outlook on life and make them feel stable, calmer, and happier no matter what the situation is! Loyalty to the family should only be practiced if the system serves your growth and future vision. If you have kids who’re small, you can try to imbibe seeds of loyalty in your family system by making the family a safe space, practicing emotional awareness, teaching children to prioritize family, and continuing to build a healthy bond with your partner. Children are very impressionable and once the family’s loyalty and strength are imbibed in them, you can be assured it will be carried forward to future generations as well. 

Loyalty To Yourself: 

Loyalty to yourself means knowing yourself, honoring your feelings, not running away from your problems, loving yourself, and not putting your own needs on the back burner for someone else’s benefit. When you show loyalty to yourself, you will be able to show loyalty to others as well. Some of the ways to practice loyalty are indulging in self-care, taking time out for yourself, setting boundaries in relationships, exploring core beliefs, practicing personal integrity, saying daily affirmations, and choosing yourself whenever or wherever it becomes necessary.
