HEART EXPRESSIONS (1): meaning and examples

Hello everybody. I hope you enjoyed your weekend.

This week we are going to look at English expressions that have the word heart (corazón) in them. Last Wednesday we looked at the expression by heart (de memoria), which had come up in the Ziggurat Breakfast Club.

Today's expression is: to take something to heart

It means: to become very upset by something that somebody says or does.

Example 1:
José Luis: Mariano is so cruel. I wish he would stop saying all those horrible things about me.
María Teresa: Come one José Luis. Don't take it to heart. I think that deep deep down, Mariano really likes you.

Example 2:
Every time I try to give him advice, he gets angry and interprets it as criticism. He takes everything I say to heart.
