I have only ever been involved in one fight that turned nasty. I wasn't even involved in the fight itself, but when it escalated into a brawl and someone hit me. My instant reaction was to hit back and I did, purely to get out of the way. I hate violence but on this occasion it was the only way I could get out of the fight and away from the trouble

fighting for pride - we fought for the wrong reasons and without sense.
In grade school it seemed that we were trying to get some false idea of respect which turned into fighting. I think society is even worse now. Girls are doing it. When we think we are going to lose we escalate it with weapons. Nothing good can come from physical confrontation. Defend yourself but dont let pride get in the way.

Once when I was about 16, it was after a basketball game and my team had beaten an undefeated team so there students were out looking for trouble. Me and my friends came across a car full of the other schools students. Of course we had a smart mouth so they got out and started beating on me. I couldn't really fight back because there were six of them. I ended up with a broken arm and lots of bruises. I don't like to fight either.

I have never been in a physical fight. When I was growing up, girls just didn't fight. We got nasty with each other verbally, but that was it. I am amazed to see all of the fights that go on in the schools now, among both girls and boys. In my area it has actually been quite a big problem. Kids need to be taught early on that there are more effective ways to resolve differences and conflicts.

bar fight - booze causes to many ruckuses
I have had occassion to fight with another man or boy as the case may be several times. I didnt choose it but I didnt back down. I think sometimes I should have though. I got the wrong idea about it as a youth. We dont have to prove manliness. It is better not to fight as we gain nothing and have much to lose.
