    see something through

    Hi,
    Here is the context:
    "She remains determined to see this through her way and insists she doesn't need a lawyer."

    I don't understand the phrase:"to see this through her way"

    I would be glad if someone could explain that to me. Thank you.

    see through - Idioms - by the Free Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia. to do something until it is finished.

    Ex: Despite health problems, she saw the project through.

    All the best.

    Hi Casiopea,
    I am glad that you answered my post. I appreciate it.
    But I am afraid I still don't understand 'her way' in 'to see this through her way'. What does 'her way' mean here please?
    Thank you a lot.

    Re: see something through

    The way she wants it done. She will not accept anyone else's way of doing things. She wants to do it or have it done her way.

    Does that help?
