如释重负【rú shì zhòng fù】

Recommended Posts

During the Spring and Autumn Period, the families of Ji Sun, Shu Sun, and Meng Sun owned the military power of State Lu. King Zhao of Lu attacked the family of Ji Sun in order to get back the power. The families of Shu Sun and Meng Sun supported Ji Sun immediately as they received the news. They corroborated well and won the battle, and King Zhao of Lu had to flee to State Qi. Since the king already lost his reputation, the public felt released to know him lost. 

[Annotation] 释: Release. 负: Burden. 

[Definition] Refers to the feeling of release.
