Escaping from gravity

Hello everyone,

Plot of a two-dimensional slice of the gravita...

ever since I heard of the concept of a gravity well I’ve had a great deal of trouble coming to terms with the fact that gravity’s actual pull in infinite ( though admittedly very small at large distances due to the inverse square law ). Is there any way someone could explain to me how it is possible to escape the effects of something with infinite range?
