15. If you have that ache to go all out, it will happen eventually. Perhaps you are in the...
wrong place at the wrong time because you want to put yourself in a place where you have an excuse to go all out.
In which case, you are definitely due some blame.
But how you made that leap from my statement I can't say.

Sometimes you are punished for something you didn't do, because of circumstance.
Avoid the circumstance when you can.
That is life in a society.

Also, you must look at things from different frames of context.
To you, I'm sure you thought yourself in the right many times when going at it with your brother - I can see this from your writings here. Yet I suspect this may not always be the case from other frames of reference.
Your Mom was right in punishing both (and for other reasons, too).
Unless you accept the risk, avoid situations that can lead to these circumstances.
Don't escalate the situation once it starts.
