Stuck in root command line after resetting the password


I reset my password going into grub recovery option and after I selected boot as usual or whatever it took me to a command line I don't know how to get out of. Help! Please!

What distro? Whose password did you reset? What happened to lead you to reset it?

Without some more detail, it will be difficult to offer competent suggestions.
