You’ve made your bed … now lie in it!
What does this mean to you? Figuratively or Literally?
I know when I used to make my bed every morning, I started having a problem with dust mites. They say not to make your bed after first waking up so that it can air out. This way the dust mites won’t have a chance to breed and survive from the warm conditions of a warmly fresh made bed. I used to break out in hives, from dust mites.
After getting a new mattress, I chose not to make my bed after getting up. I’ve not had any issues with dust mites. If you dont’ believe me…read here!
So this saying … you’ve made your bed now lie in it … has two meanings for me.
Figuratively — quit your b****in or griping because you’ve set your course. Deal with it!
or Literally — You’ve made your bed … now have fun with the situation that’s caused too. Dust mites! Yikes!
When you hear this phrase … what does it make you think???
