  核心句型:

  Pull yourself up by your bootstraps.

  你要重新振作起来啊!

  pull oneself up by one's own bootstraps直译过来就是:“通过自己的靴带站起身来”,这个短语的正确意思是:“不依靠他人,经过自己的努力来改善不良的处境”。因此,当美国人说"Pull yourself up by yourbootstraps."时,他/她要表达的意思就是:"Cheer up by your own strength."、"Pull yourselftogether."、"Get rid of the bad state by your own struggle."

  情景对白:

  Shirley: I feel extremely embarrassed. I was beaten by a newcomer in this project.

  雪莉:我简直无地自容。在这个项目上我居然被一个新人给打败了。

  Benjamin: Honey, pull yourself up by your bootstraps!

  本杰明:亲爱的,你要重新振作起来啊!
