Hey everyone out there,

How are you all doing today?

Welcome back yet again to another chapter of our “Free 30-day Vocabulary Acquisition Course” where you’ll learn some new vocabulary every day about a subject with context and examples, and so will you today.

So without further ado, let get down to the business and see today’s context:

Context – Joe (son) is talking to his father Mike

Mike: Look what I brought for you! Your favorite chocolate cake!

Joe: Thanks dad, but I don’t want to eat anything right now.

Mike: You never said no to the chocolate cake! What happened to my boy? Is everything alright?

Joe: I am okay. I just need some rest.

Mike: No, you are not. Tell me what’s the matter? I am your father Joe; I know something is upsetting you for sure.

Joe: I always got good grades. All teachers used to praise me for my brilliance in every subject, be it Science or Mathematics. I have always excelled in every field, but this time, I think I won’t even pass.

Mike: Why do you think so? Didn’t you write any answers?

Joe: No, that’s not the case. I don’t know what happened to me at the last moment that I could not remember properly anything that I have learned. I wrote the answers anyhow, but I don’t think they were correct.

Mike: See Joe, there is nothing you can do about it now. If you think about this now won’t change the situation. So you see, even if you didn’t do well this time, you have so many other chances in life to prove yourself.

Joe: I just wish I pass this time. I will make sure I revise everything at least twice from next time, so it will never happen again.

Mike: You are going to do good. I believe in you, so please don’t sweat it now. Cheer up your mood and eat this cake I bought for you.

Did anyone ever say not to sweat it when you were in worry?

Did it confuse you then?

I hope it’s clear from the above context what this idiom means.

Well, in case you didn’t get it by now, it is simply another way to tell a person not to worry. Usually, people who are in some tension start sweating, it is where this expression originated from and became a popular way of telling someone not to worry.

Example: Don’t sweat about the results now. There is nothing you can do about it.

So did you like today’s chapter?

I know you did and I hope it added some new vocabulary to your arsenal of active vocabulary which will be definitely useful in your daily life. Make sure you read this article thoroughly and practice it with your own examples so as they become your second nature.

See you tomorrow with some new topic and vocabulary.

Till then keep learning and improving.

Take care and?
