    views were met with opposition

    Hi,

    Question:
    What is the meaning of the sentence below?

    Sentence:
    Tell me about a time when your views were met with opposition.


    My opinion:
    There are 2 possibilities:
    Meaning1: my views were rejected
    Meaning2: someone disagree with my view, but my view can be rejected or accepted, finally.


    Thanks

    Re: views were met with opposition

    It means someone disagreed with (opposed) your views.
    There's no indication of whether your views are finally accepted or not.
