Why I Follow

My M is not generally man who dictates. He waits. He doesn’t wait because he’s lazy or because he isn’t observant. He waits because he’s already three steps ahead. He waits because he has a respect for me and knows that I/we will miss integral opportunities for growth if he steps in with and iron fist and takes over. He waits because he’s a smart man who understands me, he listens to and hears and feels me, and he guides all the time, in ways I don’t even realize. And sometimes, life grabs me by the shoulders, shakes me, and makes me see he’s known all along, that he’s had a plan all along. He waits, until he doesn’t. And I love him for it.

That is why I follow.
