The wonderful thing about scraping bottom is that the only direction left is up. One of my favorite Dr. Phil-isms is his use of the statement:
I have some good news and I have some bad news. The bad news is, you’re in a terrible situation and it can’t get any worse. The good news is the only thing that can happen now is that things get better.
I’ve watched him tell this to people contemplating divorce, dealing with violent attacks, working through horrible betrayals. It doesn’t matter if it’s a relationship or a personal issue. It carries enough power and inspiration to address any bad problem.
Scraping bottom is not the end of the world. It is the beginning of the next phase in your journey.
