What is the meaning of Inure?

To make somebody used to something unpleasant, over a period of time, so that he/she is no longer is bothered or upset by it.

Simply put it, you are getting accustomed to something unpleasant.

Can we have examples ? 

Three simple examples I can give .

1.The life of medical professionals and the situations they face in their routines and getting used to all the unpleasant situations including diagnosis,though it is a bit difficult to convey the news to the patients.

However distressing the situations,these brave people overcome to carry on their duties.

A case of heart outside the body of the fetus diagnosed early during antenatal scan,an unpleasant situation but has to be informed to the concerned people.

2.About the Poop.It’s OK…..I am a bit gross here but I am telling the fact. ( my apologies )


I need not give any photographic representation.

Have you ever wondered, why we can smell the odour off other poop but not our very own majority  of the times ?

This is our brain’s amazing way of conditioning our sense of smell to our own poop.

To be precise we do smell our own poop, but the thing is…we are OK with it since our brain simply filters the odour and we may not even be aware of smell of our own poop, strangely the same brain refuses to filter the odour of others poop.

And the funny part is ….

3.The last example is Alcohol,the one we consume regularly.


All of us know that.Alcohol tastes bad.

First you take a drink, then the drink takes a drink, then the drink takes you.   F.Scott Fitzgerald

You are aware that whoever starts tasting alcohol, for the first time makes funny faces because of the taste and smell and some even may gag at the thought of further sipping.

Over the time you get used to the smell and taste of the liquor and no more it is unpleasant, and your day is incomplete without liquor
