I’m sure the title of this post will cause some people anxiety, that can be aversion therapy in itself. You want to lecture me on being too violent or something stupid like that. I only ask you read it first and reserve your opinion until the end and hopefully you will understand where I am coming from. Its all about aversion therapy.
Here is my disclaimer, I don’t believe in violence and this is not an article on being violent. It’s just a thought, nothing more and nothing less. Please don’t go around punching people in the face as it is not what this is about. Oh, before I forget, don’t say you read an article by me that said you should punch someone in the face, because I don’t think you should. Take the article as satire to help you think a little bit, not a literal interpretation of something you should do.
We live in a time where too many people are either inconsiderate or stupid coupled with the fact they watch the TV thinking for some reason they have the same fighting capabilities as what they see on TV. There was a term when I was growing up called beer muscles, now its TV muscles. I don’t know how many people have ever been in a fight before, but I can tell you that not many people can take being punched with 35 closed bare fists to the face and win. It just doesn’t work that way. That is TV not reality.
I don’t know if people actually believe they are going to get into a fight and win because they think the TV taught them how to be tough, or people in general are just so lame they feel they can emulate something scripted on TV, but I can assure you that a fight in real life is not a fight on TV. Watching TV from your sofa is not the same thing as someone who is trained to fight during physical exertion. Trust me you will appreciate aversion therapy if you get into a fight you cannot win.
Now do you think if this person had been punched in the face before, they would walk around being inconsiderate of others? I can assure you they wouldn’t. Having been involved in a few fights over the course of my life there are two things I know to be absolutely true. One, you cannot predict the outcome of a fight no matter how tough you are. The second being, getting hit in the face sucks. If you never had it happen, this is a case where you don’t want to know what you are missing.
Trust me, I have been punched in the face a few times, by the way, I deserved it every time. I don’t like it, it hurts in ways you cannot imagine. You may be wondering why getting punched is so bad did I have it happen to me a few times, the answer is simple, I am a slow learner.
The reason I bring this up, is because if you actually talk to someone who has been in a fight or is a good fighter, they will all tell you the same thing. They don’t like to fight because it doesn’t matter if you win or lose, getting hit in the face is horrible. There aren’t many things in this life that are worth having that happen. It’s better to just mind your own business, be thoughtful of others and go about your day. Why cause yourself unnecessary burden when you don’t have to, seems like a simple idea.
Walking around all the time acting like you’re Jet-Li will certainly put you and your loved ones in a situation you don’t want to be in. I can assure you someone will take you up on the offer and you probably won’t like the outcome, especially if you have never been hit before. Never mind the fact you have no idea what someone else is capable of, and finding out the hard way is usually in my opinion not a good idea.
Furthermore, you can never predict what will happen in real life situations or how you are going to respond when confronted with the reality of what’s about to happen. There isn’t any reason to walk around trying to prove something, especially if you don’t know what it is you are trying to prove. Staying in control of yourself and not putting your fate in someone’s hands is just a good way to live. Let me be clear getting punched in the face is bad, if you are a man, getting humiliated in front of your wife and kids is a lot worse.
The Deviant View on Aversion Therapy
There is something to be said for aversion therapy. If you have ever been hit in the face, trust me you know what I’m talking about. The problem isn’t with people that have, it’s always the people that haven’t that cause issues. Because they have no idea what’s its like. If they were hit in the face before they know walking around like the world revolves around them isn’t productive, minding your own business and being courteous to others is just easier.
Sometimes I wonder if you just lined up the fools and hit them in the face just once if that would solve a lot of the bad attitudes today. It would provide those among us that are inconsiderate the proper frame of mind to know that it isn’t worth it to be an inconsiderate idiot.
