There are many ways to understand desire and to define it properly, but in doing so, it is important that we do not fail to mention the elements essential to desire and their corresponding affect on our intentions. Desire is often difficult to attain because it is always pushed back on the list of priorities when analyzed from a societal standpoint - "Let's keep on working, and as far as desire is concerned, come back later" (Lacan 318). This repression of desire is unnatural and results in great human suffering if we believe that "The only thing we can be guilty of is giving ground relative to one's desire" (Lacan 321).
