Back up has several meanings, and the one I’m focusing on today is “to support someone.” You can back someone up emotionally, financially, and in other ways.
- When I was in college my parents backed me up.
- Jim wants to complain to the boss and I said I wold back him up.
- I’ve decided to back up my brother-in-law’s plan to start a new business.
How about you? Recently, have you backed anyone up? Has anyone backed you up?
