8 definition by Dr. Sassafrass

1) used when a friend is having a tough time or seems to have a lot on their plate to make them laugh off their stress and to show them that you know they can do it.

2) a phrase that closely resembles the usage of don't die and the meaning of man up or buck up

3) used less for mocking and more for inspiration/consolation
