Hello everybody!

Can you pelase correct it?

Then we indeed have to rely on our own common sense (sensibleness?) and inventiveness as well as on the advice of the more experienced, instead of giving up the negotiations in advance (beforehand) and making matters worse by responding aggressively to aggression.

If you have any comments, please let me know. I'm especially not sure about responding agressively to aggression.

Thank you very much
Hello Antonia

Then we do indeed have to rely on our own common sense and inventiveness, as well as the advice of more experienced (?negotiators), instead of giving up on the negotiations in advance and making matters worse by responding to aggression in an aggressive manner.

Thank you Mr Pedantic. It sounds much better now.
