Over the years, I have been loyal to places and people but the culture and the way things are done have changed and nowadays… things are becoming hard to bare. I promised myself – I’ll never be a walk over to anyone now or ever. Sometimes you have to forget what you feel and remember what you truly deserve!! If you’re not getting 50% back at half way point for your efforts and hard work then something isn’t adding up. Never put your 100% just to get nothing back, what is the point? Why bother in the first place?
In the past, my mouth had no filter I said whatever I thought and I didn’t care … until recently, I now watch what I say so it don’t hurt others feelings. But is it worth it? No way!! Honestly, some people ask for it… for others to be mean to them by the way they go about certain things. Sometimes a situation won’t change until you take yourself out. Being loyal won’t get you no where, so no matter what you need to always have your own back as no one will watch out for you.
Things change, people change and you grow up to being wise and not be taken advantage of. Know your worth and stand your ground as you are worth 100× more than the silly things you go through!! Know your worth and never settle for less than you deserve.
Being LOYAL means “giving or showing firm and constant support or allegiance to a person or institution” but if you ain’t getting the same back then are you a fool to be walked over? Don’t show loyalty to those who don’t give as much respect back to you. Don’t let your worth drop for anyone or anywhere!! Carry on doing what you do but do it with others who appreciate you and those who give it back to you as much as you give to them. It works both ways so don’t be taken for a ride. Don’t ever doubt your worth, stand your ground against all odds!!
