    Resist the temptation

    Dear Teschers , Please explain. I couldn't resist the temptation to open the door. What does resist the temptation mean?




    Thanks

    Imagine:

    You aren't allowed to open the door. But you are curious and you want to find out what is behind the door. So you open it despite the forbiddance because you cannot resist the temptation. Your curiosity is stronger.

    Does that help?

    resist (hold back)
    temptation (urge)


    I could not hold back the urge to open the door.
