Loyalty over love.

Love is quite easily one of the most thrown around, battered, and bruised, terms of a lifetime. With everyone having a seemingly different understanding of what it means to them, it's essentially impossible to create a simple A + B = C --which is kind of what's being eluded to in this thread with love & loyalty.



I agree 100% ,there is no real unconditional love without loyalty! Most men are in Lust when they say those words or infatuated because if a man ( provider and protector) loves you He will be loyal! Anything less than is not love!

Reality is many people do not equate love with loyalty. They equate it with feelings, but not actions. For some, loving someone makes them less loyal because they fear committment. We can argue that it's steretypical, but statistically women are likely to be more loyal than men. Fact is today, people are more likely to look for someone who can fulfill their needs emotionally, socially, and physically without having to make a committment. So, loyalty is becoming more rare.

Well its a tough call. Because I would think a person puts a bloody lot of effort into their relationship and themselves. But when theres no traction when the right time to call it quits. No one wants to be a quitter but no one wants to be a sucker either.


The sinking ship scenario, sure its kind of romantic captain going down with his ship but really at the end of the day, a captain committed suicide because of a bunch of wood/steel. With people, it becomes you can be loyal and love them but do you want to stick with someone who isn't growing in some pretty vital ways. We all have that initial love period but sticking too after that is the biggest step for people.



I cant say where the line is but I would say loyalty over love, the initial feeling of love goes away eventually and you have to try and renew it with the same partner you're with. But that takes some time and effort and some people aint got that kind of time and resources. Nothing kills a young romance like the daily living, I bet a lot of couples are great when they're young until they start living independently and realise someone has to wipe the tables, mop the floors and pay the bills. Loyalty is love. Anybody can say they have it but the real ones live it and show it.

BEAUTIFUL EYES

Have you ever been told that your eyes are beautiful? You could be looking into everyone's eyes or in the mirror and wondering how beautiful eyes look like.
Is it the 'V' shape of your eyes or eyebrows?, is it the colour?, is it the size? or it is just another obvious compliment that you are used to hearing.SaD EyEs ArE BEAUTIFUL! Good people have sad eyes. I mean extremely beautiful eyes. And i do not mean that bad people have ugly eyes. Bad people have sad eyes too but lost.
You might be checking in the mirror and wondering where "lost" comes in or even wondering if you are a bad person. Haha! You are definitely not a bad person. You are just a good person but the 'lost' in your sad eyes hides the good in you.What i mean by "lost sad eyes" is that you got lost in your pain and became a bad person. You might have decided to become a completely different person from the original you because you think everyone expects that from you.Let us admit…

Money and Money Disorders.

Everywhere you look, there’s compelling evidence that the single-minded pursuit of wealth often leads smart people to do incredibly stupid things — things that destroy what money can’t buy.I ask myself the same questions. How is it that brilliant people with more money than they’ll ever need allow their hunger for even more money to cause them to lose everything? How much is enough, and why are people willing to risk so much to get more? If money is so alluring, how is it that so many people of great wealth also seem so unhappy?Just about everyone has a complicated relationship with money.The average Kenyan  seemed to suffer from a money disorder.Money disorders are persistent patterns of self-destructive and self-limiting financial behaviors.They result from distorted beliefs about money we develop from our financial flashpoint experiences.Whether it's a childhood of poverty or want, a message about money subconsciously internalized from a parent, a nest egg lost to an economic d…

Marriage.

I had a dream that i was pregnant. It felt so real. In my little white dress, and my hands on my belly.
I felt so special and pretty, a feeling that a model will never feel despite all the runways...
Maybe it was the way i was treated by people around me. I was on a new level.Maybe it was the way the drivers would stop their cars even before i had my right foot on the road. Maybe it was the way people will give way on a busy street . Maybe it was how the driver would turn down the volume when i got in the loud matatu.
Maybe it was the way he opened the door for me and pulled a chair for me. So i sat there thinking about him, the father of my unborn baby. Back to reality, am not pregnant, it must be my hormones playing tricks on me when i am sleeping.Google has many definitions on marriage. I have never come across a positive one.
If not two people who are inlove with each other seeking a paper proof that they can legally live together then it is loving each other even in those days wh…
