shrug it off

2019.03.20

Meaning:

A shrug is body language. We shrug by lifting our shoulders up. We usually shrug to show ‘I don’t know’ or ‘I don’t care’. For example, if you ask me, ‘How much is 783 x 7?’, I will shrug. ‘Shrug it off’ means ‘*try* not to care’. If someone says something hurtful to you, you can shrug it off by being strong and trying not to think about what they said.

Example:

A: John is so rude! He just told me that my dress looked like something his grandmother would wear.
B: Oh, don’t listen to John. He is rude, but you shouldn’t be upset. Just shrug it off. It’s his problem, not yours.

Talking Point(s):

Has anyone said anything hurtful to you recently? Were you able to shrug it off?
