When would you use this expression?
You would use this expression when you have an unwanted stress taken from your life. It feels as if “weight is being lifted off your shoulders”.
This would be used in a situation where someone may be distressed or overwhelmed by something. However if the “weight is taken off their shoulders” it is saying that the situation is resolved.
Example: I was worried about my test, but now that it is over, I feel like the weight is taken off my shoulders.
