Dilemma


n.

  1. A situation that requires a choice between options that are or seem equally unfavorable or mutually exclusive.
  2. Usage Problem. A problem that seems to defy a satisfactory solution.
  3. Logic. An argument that presents two alternatives, each of which has the same consequence.

IN BRIEF: A difficult choice between things that are equally unpleasant.

A dilemma (Greek δί-λημμα "double proposition") is a problem offering at least two solutions or possibilities, of which none are practically acceptable; one in this position has been traditionally described as "being on the horns of a dilemma", neither horn being comfortable; or "being between a rock and a hard place", since both objects or metaphorical choices being rough.

I’m in a state of dilemma. Why is life so complicated? Why can’t we just enjoy life as it is?

It’s so hard to choose, knowing that in the end, one has to sacrifice or give something up. What make things harder are the consequences of choosing one over the other.

Why should we sacrifice something if we knew we were going to be hurt by the mere thought of losing something so valuable? Why should we hurt? Why should we feel pain?

I guess I can never know the answer to these questions…and yet, the fact still remains...sacrifices are a part of life. So is change. I guess we just have to deal with that. Even if it hurts. Move on...Let go...
