How to use "Grittily" in context?
Grittily refers to an approach to life characterized by a strong determination and unwillingness to let anything stand in the way of achieving one's goals. This can often be seen as a personality trait, as those who grittily succeed often have a single-minded focus and a tenacity that is difficult to match.
The word has a history that can be traced back to the early 1800s, when it was used to describe a type of workwear worn by British coal miners. Due to the harsh conditions of the mines, these workers had to be highly resilient in order to keep going.
