It's not being controlling
Michael turned to Grandpa and said, "What you're saying is so different from what I've always heard. Isn't it being controlling?"
"Sounds like you believe all the terrible things you've heard about men - even the jokes that make fools of men."
Michael smiled. "Like, what's the difference between men and fine wine?"
"Wine matures with age."
Grandpa sighed with a sour look on his face. He shook his head. "Most men I know are decent, mature people."
"I know. But aren't some men controlling?"
"Some. But don't confuse being strong with being controlling. Being strong is hard work. It's a burden. It's taking responsibility for what's going on, taking charge and finding solutions to problems."
"You really think that's what Lisa wants? Do you really think it would make a difference?"
"Michael, once I learned this, Grandma started respecting me more, even when she disagreed with me."
"She didn't see you as controlling?"
"If she wanted something a certain way, and I was against it just to be bossy - then that would be controlling. If I had insisted on something that showed I cared only about myself - that would be controlling. But when you set a goal that shows you care about your loved ones and you stick to it even when people are against you, that's being strong."
"What did you do?"
"I'll teach you. Listen."
