Hello,

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.

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".
