Everyone makes choices in their daily lives. People make easy choices and tough choices. While making an easy choice, one of the options can be manipulated whereas while making tough choices, few things are gained and few things are lost.

If the person chooses family, he will lose friends. If he chooses friends, he will lose his family. This is an example of a tough choice. Making a tough choice will always result in a loss. Therefore, one’s loss or gain depends on his/ her choice.
