Women can do almost anything we want, and we have overcome so many obstacles and shown our strength over and over again. But the real truth is just because we can doesn’t mean that we want to. The one thing we were never equipped to do is to be like a man.

Women can do almost anything we want, and we have overcome so many obstacles and shown our strength over and over again. But the real truth is just because we can doesn’t mean that we want to. The one thing we were never equipped to do is to be like a man.

I am completely comfortable in saying that even a strong and successful woman wants to be covered by a strong, wise and trustworthy man – starting with her father. Security for a woman is being able to trust a person’s fidelity, decisions about money and overall direction about life. Is that really hard for men in relationships with women to understand?

Jeff Johnson and I take our conversation to another level in the conclusion of this interview, and I share what’s on my heart and mind, Direct-style!

DEYA: So, even though I know I have goals, I want to know that if there’s a day when I can’t hold it down – for instance, if I’m not there (on top of my game) today, then I know you’ve got me. In other words, the man in my life has my back. I need to know that because of the God that he serves and the mindset that he has, he’ll make good decisions to cover me and protect me when I can’t cover myself. When a make a bad decision, I can bring it to him. A woman just wants to feel protected, and a woman wants to feel covered and she wants to know “I gotcha

JEFF: But not “I own you.”

DEYA: Right. But if there is a day that I’m laying on my back having a child, I just need to know you’ve got it covered today. And that’s what’s sexy to me. That’s really gangsta – a brother who handles his business, and he can cover you when you need to be covered. That’s some good stuff to me.

Jeff Johnson, everything that you are and everything you’re not and everything that you’re ever going to be … I just want you to know sisters do have your back, and we appreciate your vulnerability because to me, that’s what ‘s up. That’s what sexy too – for a man to show his strengths and his weakness, who can cry sometimes on your shoulders or in your lap, but he knows how to stand up and be a man up when it counts. It’s called being a human being. And that’s what you’ve given us because you lay it out there. Thank you for owning your truth because when you do that, as a man, you give permission to us all as a professional, as a spiritual being, as someone in the limelight and as someone who falls and who gets back up. You allow us to say we can too.

JEFF: Well, I appreciate that, and I appreciate all the support of the sisters. And these kinds of conversations you’re having are so important. I just hope that we can take them off the radio and use them in our own relationships or even in our own homes. Get the healing that we need, whether it is spiritual or clinical. Y’all, call somebody.

DEYA: Come on, I’m right there with you.

JEFF: That really elevates us to the next level. I thank you for inviting me on and appreciate what you’re doing.

DEYA: You’ve really taken me to church. You have no idea! (Laughs)

JEFF: (Laughs)
