Loyalty is a under appreciated quality.

Times will be tough, life gets hard, twists and turns come out of nowhere to make your straight road plans useless and the journey discouraging. It’s lonely out there,

Loyalty is a under appreciated quality.

I don’t think we were designed to take the journey alone. We were designed to journey together with others.

The trouble is trust is getting harder to find every day, good ol fashioned relationships with people are becoming more and more rare. Frankly we just don’t connect in meaningful ways like we used to.

Part of that can be blamed on social media, and the digitization of our society, but part of it is also just our own laziness. Our culture doesn’t like to work hard, they don’t like to invest, they don’t like to risk investing in a relationship with someone that might turn right around and stab them in the back.

So, they don’t.

They don’t reach out and connect in meaningful ways, they don’t spend time or work to understand the needs or differences of the people around them, and they certainly don’t learn to appreciate those differences.

What we need is loyalty. Loyalty to one another, to know without a doubt that we have each other’s back, that we care about one another, dare I say we even love one another.

We need a more unguarded investment and love in relationships that builds trust and loyalty.

It starts with you. Not them, you.

You need to reach out and make the call to that person you need call, you know who that is. You need to disregard your fear of being rejected and invest in friends and family, ask questions, learn who they are and develop some good old fashioned trust and loyalty. Loyalty is under appreciated, but when you need it most, trust me, you’ll appreciate it.

Onward,

Chris Behnke
