Neither A nor B

rock and hard place

“Option A is bad and Option B is worse.”

We can get stuck thinking there are only one or two ways out of a given situation.

Consider closely for a moment anything you struggle with. Within that struggle, you likely are entertaining a false dichotomy: “It’s A or B.”

We can break out of this mental trap by remembering that there is always another way. And by remembering that fretting about an apparent rock-and-hard-place is a great way to prevent us from finding that other way.


In your corner,
