Yeah, but sometimes that's really *not* the driving force of these sorts of discussions... Pfft...
Sometimes, when you're in a situation, you just can't see any good options. Sometimes getting the perspective of others can help you to see more choices and make a move. And sometimes it is just a pity party where the party boy/girl resolutely shoots down every helpful suggestion in their determination to remain stuck. TBD which kind of party this is.
