Fellas, Jump In The Pool

Published March 5, 2021 by tindertender

The last thing I wanted to do was jump in the damn pool with my clothes on. I didn’t care about the pics or the photo op. Real talk, I couldn’t have cared any less about the pool jump.
.
But she did.
.
She wanted it.
.
My wife has been married before but never really had a proper wedding. It was down at the courthouse kinda shit.
.
And this time she had a dream. She wanted the gown and flowers and location and cake and photographers etc. she wanted the fairy tale when in reality I’d have been just fine down at the courthouse.
.
So I jumped in the pool.
.
Not cause she made me. Not cause she’d have been mad or held it over me (she ain’t like that), I did it because it was important to her.
.
And I’ve learned over the years that I have things that are important to me that she’d likely never give a damn about but I want her involved.
.
So I jumped in the pool.
.
Because I love her. And I love her dreams and her desires. I jumped in the pool not for the photo, I jumped in the pool for her.
.
Her dreams may not be my dreams, but I wanted my queen to know her dreams were important to me. Her desires I care about.
.
So I jumped in the pool.
.
Fellas, jump in the pool.
.
Don’t be an ass. Don’t be a stick in the mud. It ain’t a flex to push her down or roll your eyes at her dreams. It ain’t tough to mock her or call her your old lady. It ain’t a flex to keep her down, it’s a flex to push her out to fly! It’s KING shit to empower your woman to LIVE HER OWN LIFE!
.
This is your fucking queen.
.
You want her to treat you like a King? You want her by your side when you do your shit and live your life?
.
Then stand by her. Do the silly shit. Take the photos. Dance in the middle of the restaurant.
.
I want my baby to dream and I want her to know that I may not have the same dreams, but I support her and will take whatever pictures she wants.
.
So I jumped in the pool.
.
Love you baby.
