share of walls?
What does it mean by "share of walls" in this sentence?
"We who have tried all those things, hit the dead ends, and slammed against our share of walls donít fantasize about other options because weíve already experienced the obstacles."
Thanks for help in advance.
Re: share of walls?
We have slammed against our share of walls. This is using a metaphor, where "walls" mean life's obstacles, difficulties, or barriers to what we are trying to accomplish. The word "share" just implies that everyone has these obstacles in life, perhaps some more than others. If they were to be distributed fairly, or evenly, to everyone, the writer says we have experienced our fair share.
This is a great quote actually. Thank you for sharing it! I hope my explanation helps you.
