This idiom is very common.


●I’m willing to turn a blind eye to her bad behavior, if she apologizes me. Her words made me see red, but I was forced to bite the bullet at that time.

bite the bullet = bravely accept something unpleasant ぐっとこらえる、我慢して立ち向かう
( a useful idiom that can be used in almost any context.)
