    Hello,

    Could you please tell me if the idiomatic expression "Grin and bear it" can be translated into Spanish as "A mal tiempo, buena cara?

    thanks a lot!

    I am not a teacher of English and not a native speaker.

    "Grin and bear it" means to be as cheerful as possible in pain or trouble; do something without complaining.
    Examples.
    The doctor told Mrs Howard that she had to stop eating sweets if she wanted to loose weight, and she tried to grin and bear it.
    If you must have a tooth drilled, all you can do is to grin and bear it.
