Hitting Rock Bottom

What does it mean to hit rock bottom? And can it actually be a good thing?

This might not be the most light-hearted topic, but I believe this is important, nonetheless.

Rock bottom, why is it called that?

I think it means you can go no deeper. Or at least you feel like you can't go any deeper.

If you have ever been in this situation before, you might recognize the feeling of not being able to go any deeper.

It's a bad feeling for sure. But it also holds a certain peace of mind. You have nothing to lose anymore.

And if you have nothing to lose, you only have things to gain. Even though you might feel like this is the worst moment in your life, this can also be a turning point.

The night is darkest just before the dawn—this saying kind of captures it in from a different angle.

Hitting rock bottom is bad; I do not deny that. This could also be the turning point that you will always remember when you are high and dry, enjoying life.

You do need to let it, though. If you don't, you might find that it's not really rock bottom after all.
