My husband is my opposite. He’s not high on words. You won’t get long responses from him or drawn out communiques… He doesn’t allow people into his personal circle even in a general sense and he doesn’t care much to be seen. Social media is not his forte and 9 times out of 10, his responses to my public expressions are made to me privately.
A real OG moves in silence, sure of himself and unconcerned with the impression he leaves … His utmost requirement is respect and he gets it without asking. These days, in a world where everyone seems to be advertising themselves in misleading ways, it’s refreshing to have a man whose status in life speaks about him all anyone needs to know, but who doesn’t reveal himself to many, doesn’t value that status or lose his own humility during his own escalation.
A humble man, a generous man, a gentle man. But also a man you don’t cross because there is a beast inside who will never be tamed and who is nearly uncontrollable once unleashed. We have much in common on a spiritual level, but in all outward appearances, he is my opposite. Maybe that’s the appeal that’s kept us going for so long. We know each other inside and out but we simultaneously keep one another guessing.
Damn I love my dude. Even after all this time, everything about him is sexiness personified. I exhale when he’s near me and he breathes me in.
I love him for that.
What’s This Series About Anyway??
I believe that strong marriages rely on three key elements:
- Love – unconditional
- Communication – uninterrupted
- Affirmation – uninhibited
Everything else stems from how healthy the couple is in those three areas. Because of this, I’ve started communicating my love for my husband through weekly affirmations… those simple statements of truth that let him know I see all the ways he expresses his love for me. I’ve written a lot about what kind of wife I am and how I love and support my husband. This is the other side of that :)
