No lo había podido encontrar!! Entonces STAND TALL es igual que estar "orgulloso" de algo?? Pls confirm
gotitadeleche said:esance, irmab explains it better than I did. It is not the pride of arrogance, nor pride of something, but more like self-assurance, or conviction. The phrase is often used like this: to stand tall and proud. Lercarafridi has the right idea. It is used when facing or about to face dificulties. It means to not back down. "When all around him were broken in defeat, he stood tall." (he kept going because he had the strength of his convictions)

irmab said:Gotitadeleche, you are right... on Spanish (Mexico) there is an expression to what you are talking about "Caminar con la frente en alto" meaning that we don't have to get down for some problems, impling the air of dignity you mentioned.
