Three Important Traits

I think three of the most important traits we “should” have as good human beings go hand in hand. The traits I think are the most important and required in life are truth, honesty, and loyalty. Of course, this is just my opinion, but I do believe you cannot have one of these traits without the others because they are firmly linked together. I know it seems obvious what these traits mean, but I am going to explain what each of them means. I am also aware that it seems that truth and honesty are the same, but there is a difference.

What does truth mean to you? For me, truth means saying what is a fact beyond a shadow of a doubt. According to the dictionary, truth can mean one of two things. One is that which is true or in accordance with fact or reality. Second, is a fact or belief that is accepted as true. Clearly, truth means speaking only what is real and absolute fact!

When you hear the word honestly, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Honesty to me means being truthful, fair, and loyal. According to the dictionary, honesty means the quality or fact of being honest, truthfulness, sincerity, or frankness with freedom of deceit or fraud. Over the past few years, we have witnessed too many lies from people running the country, which are the ones we “should” be able to truth. No matter who they are, once someone lies and deceives our trust, it can take years if ever to truth the person again. The only thing that can be accomplished with lies is hurt and severe emotional pain.

Without truth and honesty, can someone truly be loyal? What does loyalty mean to you? For me, loyalty is to be supportive, honest, truthful, and to always stand by your morals. It does not matter if you are married, in a relationship, or single, you should always stand by your significant other or family. We do not always need to agree with our partners, but we should always be honorable, faithful, and honest. According to the dictionary, loyalty means strong feelings or allegiance.

Now that the definitions have been explained, do you think you can have one without the others? What makes you feel the way you do about loyalty? As I have already said, I do not think you can have one of these traits without having the others. If someone is not truthful and honest, how can they be loyal? If we have morals, that we believe in strongly, we are probably honest, truthful, and loyal, but everyone is different, therefore their morals are unique.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I am looking forward to reading your comments and your views on these traits. We all have the right to our own opinions, and I think it is important to try understanding other people’s views. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

  1. I believe truth, honesty and loyalty are one in the same. I agree with Alyssa, you can’t have one without the other. These are definitely 3 qualities that are admirable in a person and when you find this in someone don’t let them go.
    As you know not everyone can be truthful. The truth sometimes has a tendency to cause pain. You ask, why would the truth cause pain? Think about this. You’re living in a situation with someone that isn’t physically hurting you, but emotionally is just not there for you. They don’t even realize it. One person is thinking about their needs more than their spouses needs. You try so hard to please them. In turn, you’ve put you and your needs on hold. Slowly over time you’re building up resentment and anger towards your spouse. You don’t want to feel this way so you try to hide it. You wonder how long can I do this? Suddenly a tragic event happens in your life and your entire view on everything changes. You ask yourself, why am I living like this? Why am I not important? Do I really want to end my life this way? Your answer is no. You start to think about YOU for a change and what will make you happy.
    Is this something that is easy to be truthful about? No! You don’t want anybody to get hurt but is it right that you are dying inside? It’s not always black or white. When other people’s feelings are involved the truth isn’t always easy. But a lie is definitely worse. Truth and honesty go hand in hand.
    Loyalty is a whole different story. How can you be loyal to someone that is neglecting your needs, devaluing what is important to you? So not fair and not a good way to live. Once two people take vows and become one it’s not all about YOU anymore. It’s about US. If one person isn’t happy and feeling really miserable, there’s a problem. Both people should work together to make things better. If that doesn’t happen you can’t compromise your values, what you want your life to be just because you took vows. If that’s the case then the other person should be willing to do whatever is needed to fix the problem. If not you can’t give up on your own life for the sake of not hurting someone else. In the end you’re hurting and is that fair?
    All my Love & Support, Mom!!
