I love an expression that confuses itself and decides it doesn't know which one to be. How do you get it to rectify itself.

example. I have a layer where the position defines itself based on other layers, but on one rare occasion. Two layers clash.

So I want the expression. Bear In mind I don't write it like this.

//expression previous defines where Layer B should be
If(LayerA && LayerB clash){
Moved Layer B just a little bit further back.

This is when it goes funky. Layer B moves itself, then thinks oh I'm no longer clashing and goes back to clashing, then moves itself, then goes back to clashing.

A vicious cycle. I've had this a few times and never figured a way to resolve it. Any answers?
