Yesterday, “Bae” and I went to the Black Love Doc event in Brooklyn, and let me tell you! The atmosphere in there was SOOO beautiful, seeing all the beautiful black natural woman and the STRONG powerful black men supporting their woman was a beautiful site to see. I was so proud, honestly.
First things first, y’all know anything on Oprah’s Network I’m watching, but I remember seeing the commercial for the Black Love Doc Season 1 and I instantly knew it was going to be something I would enjoy watching. At that time I wasn’t in a relationship and started to lose hope on finding my soulmate.The show depicted the ups,
the downs, the couples told their truths, and what I loved most was that each and every couple got through their trials and tribulations. It honestly gave me hope again and it made me a believer, if this person can find their soulmate why can’t I? I faithfully watched every single episode, in preparation for what I was praying to God for. Now I’ve dated decent guys before but I always felt like there was something missing, and I could never put my finger on it. I felt like I was saying I wanted a Man, but it was a reason why God hasn’t blessed me with the one I was praying for Yet. So I took mental notes on certain things, just to learn and be inspired. I wanted to get excited about Love and this show did just that. It made me laugh, smile and cry in every episode ( I’m so passionate about love these days I get so emotional and it’s annoying lol).
But yesterday the event was everything. At first I thought I was going to be there by myself because “Bae” had to work, but it never fails he’s always right there by my side. And he’s never there just to physically be there, he’s always fully engaged. I’ve learned that in relationships you have to compromise, there are things he’s going to want to do that I’m not interested in, but guess what, I will go there with a smile on my face supporting my man okurrr (Cardi B. voice)
I commend the producers Codie and Tommy for what they’ve done and are continuing to do. I seen them walking around and I was just thinking to myself like “Heyy friends” lol because I feel like I know them from watching the show and their Instagram 😂. Also they had everyone’s favorite Instagram family The Ellises telling their Love story. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THEM. You can see that their story is based off of not just Love but Black Love. Black Love is different, it’s like we have to show and prove that we do exist in this world despite what this bias world only shows in the media. With Black people there’s always a fight, we always have to do more, and I think that’s what makes it even more Beautiful. With everything and everyone against us, we as a Black Couple are going to do the damn thing! It won’t be easy, but we won’t give up easily either.
I am so grateful for these types of example to be available for me and for the world to see. You hardly see positive Black Love stories, and being that “ratchet tv” has corrupted so many minds, people think that if it’s not twerking or fighting WE won’t be interested.
I’m also grateful to have such a supportive man who backs me up with literally everything, homework, planning my seminars, teaching me things as we go through this journey together and simply just taking charge when I wanna be a brat 😂🙈. He’s really the best ❤️
Hopefully we make it on the Black Love Doc one day.
