August 11, 2017 =========

☆  manage  なんとかする


There are a few different ways to use the word, manage. You have most likely used it when talking about managing an organization or people. Or of course, managing time, money, or other resources. However, today’s meaning is a little different, it is similar to the meaning of “cope” or “carry on” in a difficult situation. In other words, if you manage, it means that you can cope or succeed in a difficult situation. Here are some examples:

Don’t worry about me, I’ll manage somehow.
