NEVER back down from a fight. Even if it means takin a butt kickin... Here's the thing bud. I'm 37 years old. I haven't been in a fight in 10 years because I haven't had to (I proved early on that I stood for my beliefs). BUT, not only do you not let anyone bully you, you have to take up for the kids that are being bullied (through no fault of their own)... Don't ever start a fight unless it's to defend a family, friends, or a woman (and be very careful how far you go for a friend) believe me on this one, you meet your true friends in the real world (a true friend is your friend when it cost him something to be your friend)... Fighting sucks period. Even if you like it, it's a bad thing. It's true that there are no winners in a fight. But, it's a necessity of life and the difference in being a leader or a follower. Only fight for a purpose brother. And always help those who TRULEY need and deserve your help. The worst thing you can do is stand by while the strong abuse the weak (and just because you get your ass kicked in no way means your week).
WAKE UP EACH DAY WANTING TO AVOID A FIGHT BUT, each day you wake, be ready to fight for your beliefs! I can't say enough, it's proves you stronger to fight for something than to fight to prove something! Hope this helps little bro.
