    Lightbulb what is the meaning of "go through" in this sentence?

    Hello guys,
    I have some difficulties in understanding the meaning of "go through" in different sentences. For example in the following sentence, what does it mean?

    I am angry with you because you wanted to recruit my brother without going through me first.

    Does it mean , first you should have told me about it and asked my permission?

    What is the difference between this and "going through life"?

    Thank you in advance.

    Yes, it means what you suppose. She should have told me about it, or consulted me, first.

    Without context, I assume that "going through life" means "living life". It is a different use of "going through".
