How to use these two words ?
eg.I felt a modicum of ambivalence . So ambivalence refers to feeling.
eg."more haste, less speed" is a paradox.
I understand their meaning but I was confounded on their usage .

Your problem is not clear to me. They function much like other nouns: use them when you did a word with their meaning.

What do you mean "They function much like other nouns" ?
Do you mean paradox and ambivalence function like each other ?
I am sorry for my poor understanding. Thank you and please correct any of my mistakes ,I appreciate it.
They are just nouns with their own meanings. You have not made clear why those particular two nouns are a problem for you.
"more haste ,less speed "is a paradox.
I am ambivalent that I should speed or not.
Are the two sentences have same meaning ? I am not coherent, so I think this still can't make sense to you
Erm............Can you give me some eg. of these 2 words?

Thank you

"More haste, less speed" is a paradox.
I am ambivalent about whether I should speed or not.

Are the two sentences have same meaning?-- No, the two sentences are unrelated in meaning, except that they both have the topic of 'speed'.

Start by googling each of the two words and gathering 2 or 3 sentences for each that seem good or meaningful to you. If you like, you may post them here for discussion.

Ambivalently paradoxical or paradoxically ambivalent?

Ambivalently paradoxical or paradoxically ambivalent?

Neither expression seems very useful. In what sentence would anyone actually use these?

Thank you for your kind response. My therapist recently offered the term, "ambivalent paradox" as an alternative to one I use frequently in sessions with her, "holding the tensions between life's dueling opposites", considered a foundational precept in Jungian psychology - holding the balance between the opposites by remaining conscious of both at the same time.
