I grew up with a very powerful affiliation with the concept of loyalty. I was never in the military but I’ve been on teams and crews my entire life. I think my belief and loyalty started as a young kid watching my dad and he was with my family, the teams he coached, and the things he believed in. The way I saw it was that your team, your family, or your group would always be protected by you and stood up for by you. This isn’t to say that you wouldn’t call something that was stupid stupid, but only you could say that. You wouldn’t be okay with someone else calling your group stupid. Loyalty wasn’t about being on the cool kids club. It had to do with the belief in the group, what it stood for, and what it did for you as an individual. It’s about giving credit where credit is due as a sign of respect to your group. I see many people out there trying to find the best thing they can in whatever area they are working in. I don’t have a problem with that at all. But I do have a problem with someone being part of a group to the point where they identify themselves with that group and love everything about that group but then the second they leave the group to start their own team or crew, or to go to another team or crew, it’s like the time with that first group never existed. They seem to have forgotten the time that was put into them and the time that they put into the group. I do believe that growth and change are important to everyone’s life and honestly inevitable but it just doesn’t seem possible that you can completely block out a period of time where you found love, camaraderie, identity, friendship, and life-change as though it never happened. There were very few of us that generated what we do out of thin air. We were inspired and motivated by someone and usually that someone was in the group that we were loyal to. If it wasn’t for that first group then you wouldn’t be where you are. So whether you still with the group or not you, remember to give that respect and give credit where credit is due.
