Someone close to you is bossy. He/she is always telling you how you should do things. You're an adult, capable of making your own choices. You resent this bossy interference! But you usually go along with The Boss, because, when you have told him to butt out, it ended in arguments.Going along with a pushy person is your first mistake. Arguing with him is your second. In either case, it only enables him to become even more strong-minded.What are you supposed to do, move to Canada to get away from him?

I CAN'T REMEMBER exactly when we started calling my father The Boss, but I'll never forget why. His authoritarian style left no question as to who was in charge at our house. He could make me feel like I was being cross-examined in court, especially if I espoused ideas that differed from his. I had to be well-prepared and have my facts straight. Even if I won a debate, I didn't care; I was just thankful it was over. As a result, today I am able to hold my own with anyone.Admittedly, The Boss made a lot of mistakes and was wrong about a lot of things.
