Misplaced Loyalty

Art by Rene Magritte

For a very long time I have loyally stood alongside another person. In some instances I have fought for this persons causes or defended this person against attacks. I have done so of my own volition and never expected any reward or acknowledgement for it.

However, neither did I expect my loyalty to be disrespected or taken advantage of. It was a sad moment indeed when I realized what had occurred and learned that the same thing had happened repeatedly during the last week.

In hindsight I do not regret my previous actions, but still I cannot help feeling hurt and betrayed.

    1. Why do you say "asshole" like it was a bad thing, sexy-pants, when we both know we simply love them?

      Nah, buddy, that would be sort of like giving this person an undeserved gift, but thanks so much for offering! ;)

  2. Dear Bock,
    I know that feeling, hurt and betrayed when people disrespected my loyalty or taken advantage of it. And I also said that I did not expect any reward or acknowledgement for the help I gave. Till I learn that it was not true and that I expect that people would do the same when I have trouble, need help or just an ear that listens or a shoulder to cry on. I learn that not all the people do what I would do. Nowadays, when people asking me for help I check if I really want and can. That it is not a sacrifice and if it is a sacrifice, it is my own choice. Lowering my expectations and demands of me and others made that I feel less hurt.
    Kisses and hugs,
    Christo

    (I hope, that with my bad English, could made clear what I mean)

    1. I hear you, Christo my dear, and understand perfectly.

      However I was used to doing with out any action of support from this person, and was quite OK with it. What I did not expect was that this person would choose to act against me, that is what really pissed me off.

      There is nothing wrong with your English, my friend, in fact I think you write it better than many of the natives themselves! ;)

    1. I am sorry for being mysterious, dearest Ziga, but I did not feel the need to name names and describe actions. ;)

      I am also sorry to read that you have been ill but am happy to see that you are doing better.

      Biggest hugs dearest!
