on the other


on the other
(but) on the other (hand) the second thing to consider.

You say you're lonely and bored, but on the other hand, you never go out anywhere!

There has always been a struggle between the reformers on the one hand and the conservatives on the other.

Usage notes: often in two parts — on the one hand followed by but on the other hand - there are two things to be considered:

On the one hand, I'm delighted my work won the prize, but on the other hand, I know I could have done it better.
