What do you do when

What do you do when you don’t feel happy making a cold, reasoned and logical response to a situation and when the warm, soft, hopeful and emotive response probably doesn’t serve your own self interests very well? And what do you do when there is no "third way" middle option.

The logical response would be a bit harsh on another party. But for me, it would terminate the situation. It would mean the external ties are cut, although the internal would still need to be wrestled with. Equally though, to remain within the situation could have some very good long term benefits if I am prepared to wait, but those benefits are unknown and by no means guaranteed.

The alternative, the emotive response, is to maintain the status quo as it has become. It isn’t ideal by any means. In fact, it’s probably causing a negative impact on both parties just at the moment. There is no real indication as to how long this situation will remain, but it is certainly temporary. Beyond this period, things will be different. They may be only slightly different from the current situation. Or they may be very much better than the current situation. Or they may actually equate to the outcome of the logical response, only in a slightly more tortuous and less comfortable way.
Thus the current situation is uncertain, and uncertainty is bad.

I don’t know what to do. I favour the emotive response, partly because it would be easier, inflict less on others and keeps the hope alive for tomorrow. But a dispassionate observer would probably recommend the logical response. The trouble is that I’m not dispassionate.

Either way, go watch the new Weebl.
