    what's the meaning of "bear the sour"?

    Hi all,

    a friend of mine said he had learned a lesson but couldn't bear the sour. I wonder what "bear the sour" means. Does it mean something bad happened and he cannot let go of the disappointment and sadness?

    Looking forward to your reply. Thanks!

    I suggest you ask your friend what he meant.
