Ambivalence is a state of uncertainty and fluctuation. It is wanting to do two different things or feeling two opposing ways. For example, you may feel ambivalent about going out on Friday night. Although on one hand it would be fun to hang out with your friends, on the other hand it would be nice to save money by staying in and resting. The ambivalence is the conflicting feelings about the two desirable situations.
