Violence is the last act of hopelessness.
One believes there is no other response available.
One believes they cannot change their circumstances.
Violence does not solve problems rather it temporarily pushes it away.
There are many factors why one would resort to violence, however, we are thinking beings and we have an enormous capacity to figure things out. Before we lose it and use violence take a moment to walk away, cool down, get help, talk it out, google alternatives to acting out, do something, anything that will keep you safe.
There is no point in dishing out violence if it will put you in jail, or the hospital or have some other negative long term consequences.
Think before you act, whatever you are facing there are always alternatives to violence.
