MANAGE-2: meaning and examples

Good morning. Yesterday we looked at the verb to manage (as well as some related nouns) with respect to the organization and control of work in a company or business. Today we will look at a different meaning of the verb to manage. Today's expression is: to manage something; to manage. It means: to successfully deal with (resolve) a difficult situation, problem or emotion; to cope. Example 1: I offered to help Betty organize the Christmas party but she insisted that she could manage alone. Example 2: Kenneth manages difficult or demanding clients very well because he's very patient. Example 3: I can't manage without my mobile phone. I use it a lot! Example 4: How are you able to manage with a full-time job and two small children? It seems impossible to me! If you have any questions about this word, please don't hesitate to contact me. Have a good day!
