|I don't want you / But I hate to lose you|
You got me in between the devil and the deep blue sea
~ Between The Devil and The Deep Blue Sea written by
Harold Arlen and Ted Koehler
So. What to do?
Well. Lighten up. The flip side of The Devil is humor. Tone down the seriousness of your circumstance. It's not always easy to find a good laugh while in the middle of a grim moment, but the magic of human wit abounds (if you're lucky). Use that magic. In using your wit, you may indeed out wit The Devil and shake yourself free of the shackles that bind.
