“I Was Not Looking For A Man To Save Me But A Man To Hold Me Up In My Own Strength” – Read Chidiogo Akunyili’s Beautiful Description Of Her Partner

   

Chidiogo Akunyili, the daughter of late former Director General of NAFDAC, Dora Akunyili, announced her civil union with her partner Andrew.

Chidiogo, a writer, philanthropist, and the founder of She ROARs (Reimagining Our Africa Rising), shared how she met her husband. She had written what she wanted in a man, and 7 months later, when they met, it was like she had written him into existence.

She wrote,

Celebrating our civil union. Excited for all the white & colourful celebrations with friends and family to come. Thank you Andrew for being a daily reminder of the miracles that exist in this world and the power we have to tap into it.

On a cold February evening in Geneva, I wrote down words that I feel connected our destinies & led our paths to cross 7 months later in the deserts of Nevada. “Monday, 8 Feb 2016. Geneva – Clayton asked that I do a true exercise of what I want. Here goes. I seek a partnership with a strong man, mind, body and spirit.

I seek a partnership with a man who will cherish, love and honour me & the life we build together, supporting each other through the journey with kindness, love, a smile & words that put difficulties in perspective. He will not be away from home all the time but have a career that allows for him to assist strongly and sometimes wholly in building a home for us and for the children.

He will be conscious and inspire us to grow in consciousness. He will be full of kindness and have a depth of love that leaves us inspired by what two people can achieve together. He will hold me and we will give gratitude. He will be flexible. He is adventurous/open to new experiences. He is happy in himself & together we share happiness in God and Love.”

7 months later after strong guidance came to me to go to Burning Man — I met him. It was a story of the union of souls. I felt I had written him to existence and rejoiced in the connection we shared. One I know started with a decision to focus on the wholeness of my own soul — self love — & from the space of taking time for self I was ready to take time for another soul and him mine in turn.

I was not looking for a man to save me but a man to hold me up in my own strength. Together we continue to weave a web of care, love, strength, that isn’t without its difficulties but I’m learning & growing with & from them.

I say yes to a life spent together in partnership — to holding each other up outwardly and on the inside — to loving every part of ourselves and each other knowing we have the power to create and re-create from a place of peace with what is & the infinity that can be.
