Idioms

Today we had Mair and we had a workshop on discussing idioms, what they are and what they mean.
For example: “Don’t kick a man while he’s down” is an idiom which means for example, someone may be feeling extremely self concious about themselves such as weight or looks in general and for someone to say something along the lines of “You’ve left yourself go” or “you dress weird” etc. They would be then kicking someone while they’re down.
I found it interesting that things can be said but with more to it than what it seems.
