Why loyalty is important in a good friendship

What makes a good friendship? I have been asked this many times and after much contemplation my answer is “loyalty”. I have decided to build an article around the word that I feel is very important to any friendship and, of course, that word is “loyalty”.

The loyalty of a friend is a wonderful virtue. When loyalty is lacking, other values ​​will certainly suffer in any friendship. This is a quality to look for in a friend, as friendships can be very complicated at times, but loyalty between friends will keep the friendship together. When asked how deep is my loyalty to my friends, I always reply with this quote from an unknown author: “if all my friends were to jump off a bridge, I wouldn’t follow them, I’d be at the bottom to catch them.” them when they fall off.” You see, I’m loyal and I’m very proud of it. Remember that a good friend is someone who walks into your world when the rest of your world is walking out.

Wasn’t it Huber Humphrey who said that “good friends are hard to find, harder to leave, and impossible to forget”? If he didn’t say so, I’ll take credit for it because that’s how I feel about loyalty and friendship. Do you have a friend with whom you dare to be really yourself? Do you trust her with thoughts that almost strip you naked? Do you both speak your mind (as long as it’s genuine) and not feel on your guard? Just knowing that you’re with someone who understands loyalty in your friendship, what a wonderful feeling that is. With this friend you can cry with her, laugh with her, pray with her, and never feel bad about exposing who you really are. Remember that loyalty is built over time; very few people take the time to be true friends.

My mother always told me that a best friend is like a four leaf clover, very hard to find and very lucky to have.

Loyalty as it relates to friendship is hard for me to explain and I know you don’t learn what it is in school, but I would say if you haven’t learned the meaning of loyalty and friendship then you haven’t really learned anything. .

Aren’t your good friends like the stars in the sky? You don’t always see them, but you know for sure they are there.

I leave you with a poem that I know and I don’t know who wrote it “I asked God for water, he gave me an ocean. I asked God for a flower, he gave me a garden. I asked God for a tree, he gave me a forest. I asked God for a friend and he gave me you Be loyal to your friends, and as always you must live well to be well.
