We’ve all heard it said, “Behind Every Good Man is a Good Woman.” True. True dat. My man has found his Good Thing. I am she! But in my case, my man also brings out the best in me, too. My man dreams bigger, thinks deeper, pushes harder, encourages stronger, sees farther and believes greater. I’ve achieved a lot in life and much of my success is because he sees & patiently nurtures the greater in me and he is not afraid of my shine.
Chuck has never been threatened by my success. He’s never compared his accomplishments to mine. With him, it’s never been a competition. He accepted me and he has genuinely wanted the best for me. Sadly, it was often me keeping score. And now, I reflect how that behavior is the most divisive thing one could do. The tendency to keep score draws lines that work against the grain of “cleaving” which is to grow interdependently. There must be a mindset shift of fully embracing “we” instead of “me”. When he wins, we win. When I win, we win. He was there way before me. But better late than never.
While we each bring our unique differences, strengths & resources to the relationship, we must be willing to allow them to freely excel and flow in the relationship for the benefit of the relationship. It took me growing up and becoming less selfish to get there. I had to be willing to grow personally in order to excel relationally. Yes, My Man is Good and We are Good Together.
