The Newness of Old Love

As a writer, I tend to find inspiration in any and all areas. Today my muse is Gabrielle Union. Now there are many things that I can probably go on and on about regarding Gabrielle. However, right now I am enthused by her in the sense of being a partner. She and Dwayne Wade seem to have something very special and they are truly one of our favorite couples. Often things appear fun, and very passionate between the two, which is another thing we love. However, things have not always been roses. Gabby has fought through a bitter ex, infidelity, and career transitions for her spouse. That along with a recent piece where she spoke to some of the ways keeps the fire in their bedroom; I think we may all be able to take a few cues from Gabrielle.

Love is not easy I think that’s one thing we all know. With that being said, being in a relationship with someone who has to have a relationship with an ex is even harder. This is especially when that ex happens to be sour on your current situation and or how it may have ended for them. They seem to make the most minuscule tasks nearly unbearable. I have seen this destroy relationships due to the mental, emotional, and at times physical strain it can put on both parties in the relationship. That ex of your current partner can definitely drag some of your worst traits out of you as you attempt to navigate through the past of the one you love. That combined with being with someone who has been unfaithful would be an instant deal breaker for many of us. However, as we have seen that’s not always the case. Combine those conditions with being uprooted across the country to living conditions that are the polar opposites of what you have grown accustom to, and things have become even tougher. Would you leave your job or career, family and friends, comfort zone and support systems, just to travel across the country or world for an opportunity for the one you love? For many I know that’s a tough question. I know many people would be riddled with concerns of things not panning out, which could fester and eventually weigh on the relationship.

These are honestly things I find rare in our generation, and by no means am I saying one is wrong for wanting to hang it up due to those circumstances; it’s just something we do not see now. I have always attested today’s higher rate of separation to a lack of selflessness in relationships. I feel like putting individual happiness to the back burner for the greater overall good of a relationship is tough for people today. I always admired the love of my parents, aunts, uncles, extended family, and grandparents due to reasons like that. It’s what I hope to have in a relationship myself one day. Love of the past seemed to focus on the couple more than either party alone. We often see people challenging themselves to make things better for the greater good. We see couples fight through many if not all trials and tribulations.  However, I have often been told many of the things I desire do not exist in today’s world. That has always troubled me, but I feel like those traditions are not things that should have been abandoned. It seems that type of selflessness, patience, and sacrifice are old fashioned, and I have no clue why. It may be partially due to our generation’s struggle with foresight, or our tendency to make knee-jerk reactions. One thing for certain is it can definitely be tied to the need for instant gratification.

This is what I found so intriguing about as it pertained to Gabrielle and these qualities. I am sure it was not easy and that it took work on both sides, but I am confident it took a significant effort on her behalf. It seems her and their greatest priority is their wellbeing and happiness as a unit, which is a huge factor. I think that’s something we all need to embody. To add, I am sure most of us have heard the sentiment “To get where you are going you have to know where you have been”. Maybe it’s time we look into some of those old traditions so we can successfully move into the future.

  • Los Blancos, with captain Sergio Ramos suspended after deliberately collecting a yellow card in the first leg, had been looking to build on a slender 2-1 lead from that game in Amsterdam and stay on course for a potential fourth straight European triumph.

    However, after Raphael Varane’s header rattled the crossbar, Ajax raced into an early lead through Hakim Ziyech before Dusan Tadic set up David Neres for a second in the 18th minute.

    Real Madrid were forced into two changes when Lucas Vazquez and Vinicius Junior went off injured, with substitute Gareth Bale hitting the post just before half-time.

    Ajax looked to have put the tie to bed when Tadic swept in a brilliant third goal just after the hour – which was eventually given following an extensive Video Assistant Referee review to check if the ball had gone out of play in the build-up.

  • Trump was surrounded at Friday’s event by officials from Customs and Border Protection as well as surviving family members of those who have loved ones killed by undocumented immigrants. Attorney General William Barr was also at the President’s veto event.

    “The President acted well within his discretion in declaring a national emergency concerning the southern border,” wrote Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd, setting out the legal basis for the proclamation under the National Emergencies Act and additional statutory authorities, which largely tracks an internal memo issued by the Office of Legal Counsel at the Justice Department.

As they say, the devil is in the details… And that could not be much more true right here. Having said that, let me reveal to you what exactly did give good results.

For the moment I shall subscribe to your position however wish in the future you actually link your dots much better.

  • Despite residing in Germany for nearly 30 years, there are still some things I cannot wrap my mind around. I may have married a German, pay German taxes, and have German(-American) children, but I guess my US mentality still shines through.

    Like when it comes to personal space. I’ll be standing in the supermarket, in front of a shelf full of products, deliberating over the selection, and inevitably a hand will slip itself in front of my face and grab an item from the row. Many Germans seem to not have any qualms about this at all, but it still takes me aback sometimes.
