If a person ever tries to hurt someone I love, I can be counted on to give them a swift kick in the rear for it…in public and for the world to see it.
Loyalty is more than just a word to me and it is not something I grant in secret. I’m not going to let the rest of the world think I’m with them and not with you, especially if they’re hurting you. I know people that do this on a regular basis. They are not good people and trust me, they have absolutely no idea what loyalty means.
Sometimes in order to stand up for someone you believe in and love, you do it, even when it means you stand alone. At least you’re standing for something, instead of the nothing everyone else is blindly following.
I don’t always make the best choices about who I’m standing up for, but at least I’m out here doing the work and making my own choices, instead of just following the road of less resistance. When you care for someone and you know their heart is good, then break the lemming limbo line you’re stuck in and branch out in a healthier relationship. Jumping off a cliff just because everyone else is doing it, will kill you one of these days.
When life gives you lemmings, make lemmingade.
