This is a vent.<br><br>
well it was a birthday dinner for my cousin Shane's girlfriend so everyone was there including his brother Justin and dinner went great. Good food, lots of laughs. Then after dinner in front of everyone Justin starts to run his mouth about everything i have done to basically f*ck my life up. getting sick and not finishing high school, not having my license, haven't started college yet. So i sat there and ignored it for as long as i could but he didn't stop and i hit him. So it seems that my grandmother has disowned me and i will probably never be invited to any family function.<br><br><br>
thanks for reading and listening anyone that reads this.

Maybe an apology to your grandmom is in order?<br><br>
Not to Justin, but to her?<br><br>
In any case, I'm sorry he was so...much of an enormous jerk. It certainly wasn't his place to behave that way.<br><br>
Although, if I were your mom, I'd be hard pressed to say that I wasn't disappointed in your behaviour back. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"><br><br>
I'm sorry...not a fun situation at all...

That's rough, SB.<br><br>
I agree that apologizing is the way to go. It shows dignity, self-respect and class. That's the kind of man you want to be.<br><br>
It won't be easy to suck it up. But you can.

Wow.<br><br>
I'd say you owe Justin and your grandma an apology. Never, ever hit another human being. Leave the room or speak up, but never, ever hit someone. Ever.

I don't like this Justin person.<br><br>
But I think it'll do you a lot of good in the long run to apologize to both of them.<br><br>
And then, get the hell away from them as fast as you can and build your life.

I can't say I blame you for popping him. But, the others are right, I think the high road would've been the better choice. But that's in the past, you can't take it back. The best you can do is apologize and hope they accept your apologies.

I'm actually very surprised at how the responses are with the empathy/sympathy posts. I guess I have zero tolerance for violence.<br><br>
I'm extremely disappointed in you Snowboy. To be honest, I wouldn't invite you back either.

I agree with you lady.<br><br>
I don't think it's cool to EVER hit anyone else. Understandably you were pissed JB but hitting him didn't change anything. You should have just said what you are doing to improve your life and sometimes that's just all you can do.

I think understanding why he became angry enough to hit his cousin is a lot different than tolerating violence. I doubt anyone in here thinks it was an appropriate response.

I once nearly killed someone by throwing him over the second floor bannister at High School. He was a nothing piece of shit, a hanger-on, and what he did really wasn't even remotely enough to even get a reaction, but it was the last straw. I saw red, and picked him up and thank God some kids in the next grade up from me stopped me.<br><br>
There are times when you've had enough and you react without thinking. This seems to have been one of those times.<br><br>
Life lesson learned: You can't always control what happens to you in life, but you can control your reaction.<br><br>
Don't lower yourself to his level. Take the high road, apologize, and avoid him. I wouldn't say "never have anything to do with him", because people do change, but why put yourself in harms way until he does?<br><br>
You can be bound to someone by hate just as much as by love. Apologize and be done with him. You'll be a man befor he ever will.<br><br>
But then again, I never apologized to the little shit either.

Oh, and snowboy, my older brother picked on me for years. I always felt controlled by him. It was the worst most rotten feeling.<br><br>
When I got older I flipped out a couple of times and started hitting him...his punk ass little sister! I just lost control and flew into a rage.<br><br>
I'm not proud of it. And I never apologized. He was really surprised and left me alone after that. I'm not telling you this to say hitting Justin was okay.<br><br>
But I've lived with that awful feeling that you must be feeling right now. It gets better.
