What is loyalty?
Loyalty is a feeling or attitude of devoted attachment and affection. Loyalty is related to many other terms such: as Love, friendships, family relationship and many others. It is mostly of the time the basic of these other concept. Loyalty is only way to keep the people you love out of danger. For instance: if one of them going in a fight I will honestly, calm he/her down before, something bad happen. It is to be with a friend in good times and bad, time. Without the presence of loyalty, a strong relationship of any sort cannot be built.   However, first we have to start with the real meaning of loyalty.   It means to be faithful to a cause, faithful to someone to whom fidelity is held to be due.
