Ayesha Curry is not new to us. The world has been paying more attention to her since she made the statements about being a classy lady; however, nowadays, folks are watching Steph and Ayesha Curry based on their relationship. You know they are now the poster couple for #RelationshipGoals. What most folks are missing is what Ayesha is teaching all wives about unconditional support. She is teaching us exactly how to support our husbands on the good and bad days.
Steph laid it all out for us during his acceptance speech for the MVP award this year.
Let me help you understand if you are reaching to achieve their #RelationshipGoals then you need to understand how to support your man like Ayesha is doing.
Remember, our #1 job is to be his helpmate and Ayesha is a beast at helping and supporting.
Top 3 things we can learn from Ayesha Curry about supporting our husbands:
“You’ve given me the opportunity to go out here, work as hard as I do, spend the hours I need to do at the gym, during practice, at games, on the road, all the while just holding down the house and doing the little things that keep our family going.”
– Taking care of home and providing him with space and security to work without having to worry about you nagging or being jealous of his “work hours.” Ayesha understands her husband’s workload and hours. She respects the fact that he is working hard to provide for them. She also respects the fact that even though he is spending hours in the gym, practicing and away at games, when he is home he is home. So ladies, support your husband job, dream, business. Give them the peace and support they need to succeed.
“You’ve given our two daughters…an example to look up to as they grow up, and I don’t take that for granted at all. It’s definitely special to watch you do what you do every single day; the strength that you have, the patience that you have.”
– We are the first examples to our children on what and how marriage operates. As wives, we are the prime example of showing our daughters what a wife does and how to treat her husband. Ayesha is grooming her girls to support, respect, love unconditionally their husbands. They are not watching mom tear down their dad. They are not watching mom bitch and moan about dad not being home. She is teaching them to respect their husband hard work and also showing them when you support your husband, you benefit as well.
“Whether I have a good game or not, you’re the same person every single day and that means a lot to me, to be able to come home and just share life with you. So thank you very much for who you are.”
– When your temperament is determined by the day you had regardless of what your spouse has gone through in their day, you are unavailable to them. Ayesha, per Steph, is always the same with her support. She encourages him when he doesn’t have a good day at work. She celebrates him when he does. Either way, she is always there for him: good and bad times.
There is no cookie cutter way to being the perfect wife because there are no perfect wives but when we can do better we should. We need to understand that supporting and celebrating our husbands isn’t just for them, it’s for us as well.
It takes nothing to affirm your spouse!
It takes nothing to be the calm during a storm.
It takes nothing to build a peaceful home.
It takes nothing but a willing heart to be the wife your spouse needs.
It will take you removing the selfishness from your actions and words.
It will take you understanding the level of service your spouse needs from you.
It will take you willing to be his helper and not his mommy.
It will take God to direct you to deny self to give to him.
Yes, marriage is hard but once we understand how important we are and what we as wives bring to the marriage, it gets easier.
I appreciate Steph and Ayesha for allowing the world into their marriage. Even with the type of schedule and demands put on them as public figures, they are exuding a happy supportive couple.
We need more of that! We need to see couples that can celebrate each other without needing the spotlight on them as an individual.
Ladies, support your husband in ALL THINGS! Support given is support received.
Kudos to Ayesha for being the rock her husband needs……..
