IDIOMS

Fig. to confront a problem head-on and deal with it openly. It's time to take the bull by the horns and get this job done.

to do something difficult in a determined and confident way Why don't you take the bull by the horns and tell him to leave?

to forcefully attack a difficult situation I took the bull by the horns and confronted him about his drinking.

I keep doing my own thing,walking tall against the rain.
"swimming against the tide" or "go against the tide" : "something impossible to accomplish
Standing tall :" Dik durmak,sa─člam durmak
"running against the wind" : to accomplish something rather than dealing with impossibility .
still against the wind ! But no despair ! We will keep on running till it ceases.
"to keep your head above water"
"A company seeks to keep its head above water during economic hard times."
"A man who loses his job tries to keep his head above water until he finds a new job."
She is in hot water.
to be nervous and unable to keep still. What's the matter with her? She's like a cat on a hot tin roof this morning.
