I’ve got your back; If I’ve got money, you’ve got money; What I have is yours; If you need something, call me; What’s mine is yours; I’ll be here through thick and thin; You and the kids will never go without; I love you more than anything, more than life itself; You’ll never want for nothing; No worries, I’ve got you covered; I’ll be by your side forevermore; It’s your world, I’m just living in it; Bring your troubles to me; I’m your fix it man; There ain’t nothing in the world that I wouldn’t do for you; I really, really love you” are expressions that you may have heard from time to time. Many have been whispered in your ears during times of intimacy. If some haven’t been echoed, well that may be another problem. Agreed? The list is infinite. All of the words make you feel good. Don’t they? There are times that they lift you up off the ground and spend you around. Sometimes, they make you feel like you are floating on a cloud. You can even visualize yourself wearing a priceless tiara and flowing designer evening gowns being treated like a queen sitting on a pure gold throne, and living in a royal decorated palace with your man (who has promised you the world; your king) by your side. “Talk to me somebody!”
Now then, the time has come. Your imagination joins hands with his commitments; his promises. Just wait. Sooner or later, they will be tested. Eventually, the “rubber meets the road.”
Where and when the rubber meets the road is regarded as the most important point for something. It is the moment of truth. It is where the practical reality or crucial test proves what the outcome will be.
Will those commitments come true? Has he been lying through his teeth or is he a man of his word? Were you crazy to believe him or heads over heels in love?
Father Time is amazing. Time will always catch up with us. It miraculously forces the truth to raise its head. Did your man pass the test? Or does he have a flat tire? Will he remain behind the wheels or be kicked to the curb? Look on the road. You can’t get any closer than those four wheels gripping the black asphalt. He will get out of the car being either a talker or a doer; a man of his word or a man with words of broken promises; a man of all show and no go; or a man who will treasure you with all you deserve and all he promised. Either you will say, “What a man” or “What a _____.”
