When you feel like you are at the bottom of the pit, start working your way out. Yes, there is that dreadful feeling of being tired, exhausted and full of self-pity. But there is hardly ever another way out. Occasionally someone may lend you a hand but don’t hold your breath – people are absorbed with their own issues and, besides, being raised up by someone else may end up in another crash once the support eases up. As shitty as the situation may be, the upside (see a previous blog entry about the upside of downside) is that you will probably learn a lesson or two in the process.
p.s. if you got to the bottom of the pit by digging yourself in, it’s good to remember good old Winston Churchill who reportedly said, “When you dig yourself into a hole, first, stop digging.”
