Come on, let’s get this over with already! vs hang on, just give me a few more days to wrap things up!
Joy vs sadness
Energetic as hell vs knocked out
Relief vs regret
Certainty vs insecurity
This’ll be great! vs what if this won’t work at all?
Anticipation and expectations vs nostalgia
Don’t worry, we’ll get there! vs OMG we’ll never get ready in time!
And these are just examples. Indeed a state of contradictory elements. Although some are constant and unambiguous, such as butterflies.
