Translation of "in the cold light of day" - English-Traditional Chinese dictionary

in the cold light of day

in the cold light of day

If you think about something in the cold light of day, you think about it clearly and calmly, without the emotions you had at the time it happened, and you often feel sorry or ashamed about it.

事後冷靜理智地回想某事(常感到遺憾或羞愧)
The next morning, in the cold light of day, Sarah realized what a complete idiot she had been. 第二天早上,莎拉回過頭來冷靜地想了想,意識到自己當時是多麼的愚蠢。
