I don't know what to call this, but male ego occasionally flares up in me and I feel like I'm going to get into a fight over something stupid.

When I'm in this certain mood, I go over times I should have mouthed off back, or the time someone called me something, deliberately stared for a bit too long, or made a friend uncomfortable, or otherwise "took me for a mug".

I think about how I could have behaved like an obnoxious, domineering arsehole.

Thing is, the times in my life I have done this I feel awful almost immediately after. It's not really my character, and I quickly tire of all my social interactions feeling like a power struggle.

How do you deal with people being clowns or nasty bastards without becoming one yourself?

I'm 6"3 and built like a brick shit out, raised in a rough area and had a reputation. It's easy to be big and aggressive, but it's hard to walk away and forget about it. Just cos I can act like a bit man doesn't mean I should. My ego is my worst enemy. A few years ago I forgot about my ego and let shit slide, my 'reputation' slide away with it, since my 'rep' disappeared the list of people trying to prove they are hard fighting/challenging me disappeared. My life has been easier since.

People wanna always prove their 'well 'ard'. Just remember you've got nothing to prove and don't be violent because your ego says you must, only fight when there's literally no other option.

A thousand times this.
