Standing in the shower, thinkingโ€ฆ

Family, pondering

A good man.

A good man.

To quote Perry Farrell:
โ€˜Standing in the shower thinkingโ€ฆAbout what makes a manโ€˜โ€ฆ

Really what does? Success? How do you define success? Money? A bit of a cop out?, I think. Happiness? Perhaps. I guess everyone can define this for themselves. I guess it would be based on your situation, upbringing, values, experiences, perceptions. Iโ€™ve always thought my Dad was an impressive man. His upbringing was violent at times and he clearly endured various hardships that I never did. He *broke* the cycle. He made a decision at some point not to respond/act like his father did. (Iโ€™m sure there were many times he felt like reliving the past. My sister and I were hardly angels) But he never did. He is a fair man. He treats everyone equally. I respect that. He is comfortable having a beer with the boys and watching the game or having a quiet night sitting around a fire at his trailer. Iโ€™ve watched the relationship he has with my mother and they still seem to enjoy each otherโ€™s company after decades of marriage. Sure they fight, squabble and donโ€™t like everything about each other, but they have accepted each other and who they are. My Dad is generous in many ways, giving his time to visit family in Long Term Care, Iโ€™m not sure Iโ€™d do thatโ€ฆI guess it really isnโ€™t that hard to define what makes a man, provided we can find a good example.
