When we weather a difficult time or difficult situation, we survive it and are able to continue normally after it has passed or ended. You might hear people say that they are weathering the storm, and in this situation the storm is the “difficult situation.” Some example sentences:

Our company has weathered the recession, and gone on to make a profit this year!
Our friendship has weathered many storms, but we have a deeper relationship now because of this.
The government is weathering another political crisis.
After I lost my job, I wasn’t sure if I would be able to weather the storm, so I moved back home to live with my parents until I found another job.

Have you had to weather a difficult situation recently? If so, what was it?
