It is my personal belief that Judaism is a constant balancing act. We have values and expectations which often, necessarily, come into conflict—how could it be otherwise with so many distinct values, expectations, morals, and commandments! When these values come into conflict, our tradition expects us to make difficult choices, while still maintaining the importance of each value—even if we have to lay one aside temporarily.
