Has anyone been here?
And improved out of it?
Yes I have. The only advice I can offer is to make sure you have a plan. Once you do, make sure all your pieces play a part in it. One simple plan is when your opponent has a isolated queens pawn, the plan is to control the square in front of the pawn and plant a knight there, onlyy then do you try and win the pawn. After winning it, convert the material advantage into a won endgame.
