    Your way


    I am trying to figure out the meaning of "your way" in the following context:

    A) Borrow your way out of trouble.
    B) You can pedal your way through forest.
    C) Find your way through this life.

    ************************************************** ************************************************** ********************
    I think it's figurative use of "your way" and I was hoping if someone could explain such usage of "your way" in the literal sense.

    Thank you all for your consideration.

    Re: Your way

    In A and C, it means "your path/road/route" (metaphorically, of course; it's not an actual road).
    In B, it's more literal although it could be said to mean "your journey from X to Y".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
