Have you ever been between a rock and a hard place? Under a lot of pressure, not exactly sure what to do… Like you just couldn’t find a way out?
This week’s expression is Between a rock and a hard place.
We often use this expression when we have to make a difficult decision, especially when neither option is ideal or positive: You either have the rock or the hard place. They are about the same thing.
So below I will share with you some more examples to help you make more sense of this expression and start using it from the get go.
Start using this expression:
- I hate my job, but if I quit, how could I support my family? I’m really between a rock and a hard place.
- He’s been between a rock and a hard place trying to decide what to major in at University. He has no idea what he wants to do with his life.
- The choice at every election is like being between a rock and a hard place–both candidates suck.
- I was between a rock and a hard place trying to decide whether to break up with my girlfriend and move to Canada or stay miserable here.
- We would have been between a rock and a hard place if we’d gotten lost camping, but luckily we found the trail and got out.
