Free Online English Lessons 03: Bite the Bullet

Powered by RedCircle

Idiom: “Bite the bullet”

This means to endure a painful or unpleasant situation with courage and determination. It often involves accepting the situation and facing it head-on, even if it’s difficult or uncomfortable. The phrase “bite the bullet” may have originated from the practice of having patients bite down on a bullet during surgery before anesthesia was widely used. Today, it’s commonly used in a figurative sense to encourage someone to face a difficult situation without backing down or giving up.
