»Posted by on Apr 17, 2017 in HIRE A LAWYER | 0 comments

If you have ever been in a situation where you feel aggravated and that even if you are on the right side of the truth, you felt the unarguable injustice. These reasons, among others that are listed below, are basically the reasons why you should find and hire a lawyer for yourself, for a family member, or for someone that you feel needs it the most.

HIRE A LAWYER

Although not all cases are the same and that it would need the presence of an attorney, you still need a consultation and pieces of advice from an attorney because they know the law and they can point you to the right direction. If you have ever been in a situation involving a challenge, a deal, legal disputes and whatnot, the best thing you can do is to bring your lawyer with you and settle it once and for all.

Every legal situation is different but there are times where you really need to hire a lawyer. Clint Sellers, an Attorney in Harrisonburg VA gives the reasons below that will help you make up your mind to your lawyer stat.

You don’t know the law

Let’s face it, memorizing all the law may not be the most interesting thing you might do in your free time. But good news, lawyers actually exists to do that for you! Our laws are complicated and lawyers will guide you into understanding it and taking it into your advantage. Your case can be unraveled in an instant if you don’t have the help of a trained professional.

It will cost you more if you don’t know how to defend yourself

Losing a case will not only hurt you emotionally, but it will also hurt you financially. Fees will increase and you might pay more than for the legalities and whatnot. And besides, if you hire a civic lawyer, they won’t collect any dime unless you already have won the case.  Hiring a lawyer will save you and your money.

Filing your own legal paper is complicated 

Legal cases will have deadlines and protocols. There are certain legal documents that you need to file, to be signed and to be brought before, during and after your court hearing. These legal documents may be hard to count and bring especially if you’re not really familiar with them. Plus, one incorrect filing of a legal document can either destabilize your case or worse, throw your case out of the court.

You can get a good settlement offer

An experienced lawyer will have the skills and the knowledge to resolve the trial in favor of you. This is probably because they have seen and took several cases that is similar to yours and they have known to make a calculative guess at this point in time in their lives. If things didn’t go so well, the best idea is for you to get a settlement and a lawyer will help you in negotiating.

If the other party has one, so should you

If the other party of the case have legal representations, this might be at a disadvantage for you. Opposing a person that has more knowledge and skill at his side can give you a hint that you will lose the case.

WHO ARE THE GENERATION Y AND WHY ARE THEY AFRAID TO “ADULT”? 

»Posted by on Apr 3, 2017 in ADULT | 0 comments

Anxiety among the Generation Y -or those who are born between 1980 and 2000- is reportedly increasing. According to researchers, 1 in 3 Generation Y women and 1 in 10 men have panic attacks. It has been suggested that in today’s time, the college students have greater levels of mental disorders and stress than ever before. The biggest danger of anxiety and depression is the risk of suicide.  This generation has been dubbed as the “The Generation Anxious”.  But why? What is behind this and what can you do to not be a part of the statistics suffering from anxiety and depression because of the pressure of “adulating?”

ADULT

These list below, listed by Montas Solicitors, are some of the reasons why this generation is experiencing the anxiety of “adulating”.

Money

The economy has been tough. There is a fierce competition brought up by the scarcity of jobs and other resources. These reasons, among things, are the causes of why the Generation Y gets worried about an uncertain future and therefore they get depressed even just thinking about it. Generations before have had the opportunity to get jobs after high school and after college. But today, even those with college degrees even struggle getting employed. But don’t fret, although there are still marketable degrees, they are only for those who took up engineering and those who are in the sciences. Those who are on the liberal arts however, not so much.

Problems on Education, Health and etc.

There has been a lot of reports about terrorist threats, an increase in crime statistics, corruption, the troubled education and health systems among other things are what worries the generation y. People in Generation Y are so focused on doing what they can do to make a difference in the changing world. It has made them anxious about battling all the problems that is prevalent in the status quo.

Technology Overload

Technology has been an integral part of the Generation Y’s life. According to research, the Generation Y have been spending at least 10 hours a day on their cellphones. This constant connectivity using the technology have breed comparisons and increased the pressure to compete and keep up, not only with their friends, but also with the likes of celebrities their age, like Kendall and Kylie. It has breed the fear of missing out from what is recently happening and from what their peers are doing.

The Y Genes

Although it has been proven that anxiety can be genetic and plays a big part in your temperament, your upbringing plays a bigger role on it too. Generation Y have parents that raised them with constant praising and treats to build self-esteem. This had led them to worry about letting them down by not fulfilling what is expected of them. Also some of the parents may have been over-protective and neglectful, and the generation might feel unable to cope up with it growing up.

WHAT THEY DON’T TELL YOU ABOUT WORKING TO CHANGE THE WORLD 

»Posted by on Apr 3, 2017 in WORKING | 0 comments

They say that change is coming. In this time, people are dreaming and making their best efforts to make a difference. And there is no other generation that has been more driven to improve the plight of others than the millennials. A lot of them have been pressured and are expected to bring change. Thousands of tireless and hardworking people have been in the business of bringing positive change to their country that badly needs it. There are no superheroes in our world, no spandex, no capes on the shoulders and no underwear worn outside. We no longer have to build and wield weapons to chase the bad guys around. But a big part of wanting to go down the path of changing the world is hidden and there are so much more than we can learn when we get on the ground and experiencing it for ourselves.

Working

These are some of the hidden truths and lessons about wanting to change the world or in the less glamorous words, about being humanitarian worker.

 

Change is boring unless you see the bigger picture

The life of a humanitarian worker is not always as glamorous as what we see in the news or in the social media. It’s not as photo-op worthy when we see Angelina Jolie hanging out with the refugees or Emma Watson making a speech about feminism in the United Nations. The work can be at times, boring just like any office jobs. Since most projects are planned, they take time to be developed and evaluated before they are actually put down and done on the ground. But once you go beyond the cumbersome process and see the end results, you’ll never bored again.

Change is expensive unless you’ve changed your relationship with money

There’s a misconception that once you do humanitarian work, you have entered yourself to a life of poverty. This is not entirely the case.  The case is that once you do humanitarian work and see what is happening, you will then realize and have an epiphany about what poverty and prosperity really mean. If you have dedicated yourself to the work you’ll learn to be less materialistic and to learn to live below your means.

Change is a hate-magnet but you’ll be fine if you know you’re fighting the good fight

Wanting to make a difference will get hate from a lot of people, especially if you promote issues about reproductive health and gender issues. Changing the world means changing the people’s behavior. Stopping crime, drugs, littering, corruption and poverty among others. These things will require a lot more than just one person’s effort.  Before we can change how people act, we first have to change not only how think but also their perceptions of what is acceptable and what is normal.

Change is slow

People are often resistant to new ideas, new ways of thinking, or new ways doing things especially if these contradict strongly held beliefs and long-lasting practices. Change is hard and it will definitely be slow.
