I have allowed invisible loyalties to interfere in my well-being. I have taken life-altering actions on more than one occasion because I allowed invisible loyalties to hijack my decision-making process.
My vow was simple: I'll take any slings and arrows. I promise I'll be there. We are partners and I'll always share everything I have with you. I'll protect you and keep you safe.
My vow came with a white horse and silver bullets for every problem.
