    put up with

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to give me your considered opinion concerning the interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentences?

    I know Bella well enough to know that she wouldn’t put up with any interference with her liberty of action.

    I can't put up with it any longer.

    put up with = endure without complaint

    V.
