I'm so torn

< Previous | Next >


- This is my last year with my family and next year I'll be in California. Quite far away from New York. And won't be able to come home for my sister's ballet recitals or my brother's soccer games. I don't know, I'm so torn.

- "I'm so torn" here means "I'm so confused", right? :)

Thanks a lot!

    It's more like undecided or battling with conflicting ideas or emotions. For some reasons the speaker wants to go to California and for other reasons wants to stay. Imagine a snake with two heads, each wanting to go in a different direction - it would tear itself in two.
