Loyalty to me means to be honest with everyone including your family and friends. Also to tell the truth and ask to use their stuff before you take it before you lose the item and they ask for it back. Then they don’t ever want to be your friend because you were not loyal and you did not tell the truth. It also means no stealing money or things that don’t belong to you.
When you are loyal you understand that honesty is the best policy in showing people that you care about them. You don’t want people to think that you are in the wrong so it is easier to just be honest from the beginning. For example, one time I took money out of my mom’s purse without telling her. She got mad when she found out and yelled at me. I learned from that experience to never do something like that again because I am an honest and loyal person and I want my family to trust me.
I know that if I put my mind to it I can stay loyal and honest in the future. I will be able to tell the truth next time I’m in a similar situation. So can you!
