Q: Q: What are the legal suggestions for precontract? 08-11

For any open items, they can use a supplementary contract to set these items down later. This will enable them to avoid using a precontract in some circumstances.However, if a precontract is inevitable, the parties need to set forth calculation methods on the liquidated damage or at least an amount of liquidated damage for the default party who refuses to conclude a formal contract after a precontract became effective.

Q: Q: What role does insight, or understanding why I’m upset, play in all of this? 08-11
A: A: The basic premise of cognitive therapy is that our beliefs drive our emotions. So, insight gives us hope for growth and greater control of our emotions while also implying a sense of responsibility for our reactions. Emotions are less automatic than we often realize. Our goal is to identify overly rigid or inaccurate beliefs about ourselves, other people, and the world. Then, we want to refine those beliefs into versions that are more flexible and appropriate.
Q: Q: If I want to manage my emotions in a healthy way, where is the best place to start? 08-11
A: A: Describe, in as detailed a manner as possible, how you physically feel whenever you have strong emotions. When you’re feeling anxious, do your muscles tighten? Does your neck tingle? Does your jaw clench? Do you feel waves of hot or cold down your back? Does your breathing change? We need to identify all of the various body cues that signal a strong emotion. Identifying the differences between our body’s baseline and how it feels when we are anxious, upset or angry is extremely important. Often, we carry emotions around, and they impact our lives without us even realizing what is happening.
Q: Q: What are the dangers of downplaying or avoiding emotions? 08-11
A: A: Think of a person stuffing their emotions inside. When those emotions eventually become too overwhelming, that person will explode. Another result of this behavior might be these “stuffed” emotions causing misdirected resentment. In other words, those negative feelings will leak out in the form of passive aggressive behaviors directed toward others who are not at fault. However, people seldom realize there is a risk greater than these first two. That is, discounting or avoiding our emotions, when they hurt, can separate us from all their benefits.Emotions are closely intertwined with the meaning of our lives. If we get into the habit of downplaying our emotions, we are at risk of living our life without motivation. This kind of life feels flat, hollow, empty, and unsatisfying.
