Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress

“Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress” is the one legal term that has no application in Jurisight or mindfulness.

Because emotional distress is an consequence of “resistance,” i.e., resisting an event or situation, one cannot inflict it on another, nor can one intentionally inflict it on oneself.

In fact, once one brings intention into the distressing experience, the suffering of emotional distress begins to subside and one can more directly deal with the pain.

One can intentionally inflict pain on another, just as one can intentionally inflict pain on themselves.
