- Assholes attract trouble just because, so being an asshole exposes you to conflict and sometimes violence.
- Learning to not be an asshole works toward self-defense.
- As you progress through life and if you find yourself moving further away from conflict and violence maybe your learning and doing something right.
- Experiences come in all sizes, shapes and durations but it is still experience. A lot more than most but not as much as some, but experience all the same.
- You don’t have to actually fight to gain experience in both conflict and violence for they both take many more forms than merely fighting.
- Be proud of the progression from conflict and violence in life to a state of avoidance, deescalation and escape and evasion tactics, a lot less dangerous and damaging (damaging legally, physically, mentally and economically).
- Note that if you find your aggression and experiences less dangerous that maybe you have learned something and have become more of a socially acceptable person.
- You learned that your early experiences no matter the quantity do have quality in that your actions and state of being and mind have grown so that a need to fight physically but with your mind means you have grown and learned and prospered from those early years.
- Survival means learning, understanding and changing your ways.
- Your goals and idea’s all change constantly to the betterment of the way you live and interact with others.
- You find that your brain and mind actually feel and change due to your experiences no matter the level of conflict and/or violence involved.
- You need to learn, you need to learn to understand, you need to change and that means constantly in order to grow.
- That success and winning include avoidance, deescalation and escape and evasion over fighting (remember because it took me till the last ten years to understand and know fighting is illegal).
- As you grow and age you realize that there are better ways in conflict resolutions and avoidance of physical violence and even verbal/psychological violence.
- Expanding your horizons to take in things that are uncomfortable, outside the comfort zone, and not of your belief system, etc., means you have a chance to be enlightened. Not the perceived enlightenment often depicted in the ancient Chinese sage sitting outside a cave upon “The” mountain meditation and spewing out wise platitudes and meme’s to the seekers of the mountains wisdom but an inner honorable, humble and wisdom like attitude turned in so that when facing outward presents the best of human kind as humanly possible, at least in some small part in some small seemingly insignificant way.
- To lean that all self-defense begins with yourself, internally, defending against our monkey brains insistent barrage of stupid shit and asshole actions that are the very core to much of conflict and violence especially in our modern times.
- Realizing that sometimes winning a fight has nothing to do with actual fist fighting or street fighting and learning how to win while making friends with the enemy (still trying to learn and apply this one but then again all of these are an ongoing process)
- Learning that all of this is actually an ever changing ongoing process of discipline and intestinal fortitude where glory comes to those who find another way to reach a goal of survival in conflicts and violence.
- To realize that even when the empathy gene is turned off you can fake it enough to connect and live a better way and that means a better way to handle conflict and violence - a part of our very nature as humans.
- Learning about brotherhood of men before it is too late and learning how to be one.
- Knowing that what you did and what you became regardless is still significant and leads to growth.
