So it goes back about 7 or 8 years ago I got attacked by a group of 5 fellas they broke my jaw and gave me a concussion , but I didn't go to hospital I went looking for them and I found them I proceeded to attack them with a wheel brace(for changing car tyres) I destroyed 3 of them and 2 ran away , I severely damaged one guy I cracked his skull and lost the hearing in one ear.

About a month later they appeared where I was and attacked me again this time only giving me black eyes.

I didn't c them again for about a year , I was in a house party and they appeared I got attacked but I fought back and battered one guy while his friend Gary choked me from behind it got broken up.

Now every time I pass this guy Gary he stares at me as if he wants to hurt me , to be honest I hate fighting when I see him my heart starts pounding , but fight or flight kicks in and I walk away as fast as possible but I'm just deciding what to do as iv had enuf of him and his shit I mean it's like 8 years later and he's still pissed , personally iv had enuf and am thinking of saying to him "do you have a problem with me?"
"We can either shake hands or fight one on one" but I reli don't want to fight I just want to be abl to walk down the street without the fear of being attacked.

What do you guys think I should do?

That's a hard one. Who knows how he will react. But you could always say to him " can we call a truce on the past?" And stick your hand out for a handshake. Your being the bigger person then. Just be prepared that he might not react the way you want him too. If he doesn't just say ok and walk away.
At least you tried.
