to drown out
- Let the rain drown out your sorrow.
- I have to wear earplugs to drown out all the noise from the construction site next door.
- Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
