The Sweetest Taboo

Alafia ... *lets head fall weightlessly back with mouth open* sigh lol

I've always heard the statement or phrase rather, "Oh that woman runs that man" and never really understood what the saying meant. I truly just thought that it meant that he listened to his woman, "happy wife, happy life" right. Because , let's face it , the world basically runs off of that one saying alone. Nobody says anything about a happy husband ... And As women we never really take the time to think about what both of these sayings may be actually doing to the men who have to deal with the other side of our happiness or on the other side of our need to control and organize every aspect of our lives, to the means that we see fit.

..(which is a spell in itself.. because you're calculating and manifesting ritualistically)

But when does it become a situation where these sayings are taken too literally? or too far? What if the man isn't even himself anymore because he is trying to live up to the standards that you have set as to what should and should not be in your world. Because he is in deed in love with you and genuinely can't see his life without you as his partner... If he reluctantly goes with your flow to keep the peace or because "That's just how she is" Leaving no room for compromise where he is concerned for him and who he is ... he may ultimately be left to feel emasculated in some way or another.

I mean , I get it! I understand chile. I pay all of my own bills, and made sure I rolled how I needed to roll pre man .. so why does my show have to stop because he arrived?! ... Well when you put it that way , it so
