A good butt kicking never hurts anyone, when done in moderation.
Keep on doing it if that is what earns you the respect you deserve. It may be part respect and part fear, but if that is what it takes. Just don't let it carry over into other issues in your life where you want to punch someone out for any reason. Keep it under control
I always say kick butt and take names. If that proves too tough for you..... well... take their initials! LOL
