I guess that's like asking "What's the meaning of life?"

It's different for every individual. It depends on you as a person, on what "rock bottom" looks like for you, on how you got there...

But generally, it teaches you the skills needed to claw your way back up from rock bottom. And those same skills can be very valuable in life in many other ways.

Yeah, it's metaphorical.

If you're at your lowest point, any decision you make that doesn't add to your misery is a "step up" from your current low point
