All In The Same Boat ( facing the same challenges and needing to work together ... )

"All In The Same Boat"

People who are all in the same boat must work as a team because they face the same challenges together.

Example: "We can't fight against each other. We need to work together. We're all in the same boat!"

When people forget that they are part of a team, we can remind them by saying, "We are all in the same boat".

Example: "I'm so busy. I don't know how will get this done." Reply: "You're not the only one with a lot to do. We are all in the same boat."

We are all in the same boat means that we are all like people who are in the same boat so we need to cooperate in order to succeed.

Example: "These may be difficult times, but we're all in the same boat. We can get through it together."

All In The Family
