I have only been provoked to punch someone once. I was 10 years old and somebody was goading me on the playground over the course of weeks. One day, I snapped and hit him. However, instead of channeling the force of my upper arm into the small surface area of my closed fist and directing it to a vulnerable area of his face , I swung round with a slap motion, hitting the side of his head with the side of my fist, like a croquet swing. At that moment, I knew violence wasn’t for me and have since worked actively to discourage it wherever I go.
What have you done only once and poorly executed at that?
