Loyalty and integrity are deeply entwined. As one peels back the layers of the two, the interconnectedness of their core becomes apparent. Take for example the statement that a disloyal person lacks integrity. To understand this, one might consider the definitions of loyalty. Loyalty as a value is incomplete if it does not contain the qualities of truth and honesty. In fact, at in essence, loyalty rings true when at its very heart, pain can be felt. Pain of perhaps honesty, or tough love from a loved one, all with the intention of personal growth. Words that may be seen as harsh, are in fact sincere; making loyalty an act of integrity. One needs to be loyal to ones own beliefs in order to be a part of an honest relationship that has integrity. In this way, it is clear that loyalty in itself is an act of subjective integrity, and integrity an act of persistent loyalty.
