    We made our bed...

    Hi,

    What does the following words mean?

    We made our bed so now we have to lie in it.
    Does it mean that we had caused some troubles and now we have to deal with it?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, essentially it means that. We have created a situation that we must now live with.
