You may have seen this one many times in TV shows or movies. Let’s go straight to the point, then.

TO GO WITH THE FLOW means that one takes a relaxed attitude towards life.

This expression has the very same meaning as in like water off a duck’s back; roll with the punches; and take something in stride


Life has its ups and downs. You shouldn’t spend your time worrying. Just go with the flow!

She said she wishes she could learn to go with the flow more. Whenever she has a problem, she gets all stressed.

It may also mean to do what other people are doing or agree with the opinions of others.

EXAMPLE: When you're new in a school, it's easiest to just go with the flow for a while, and see what people are like.

There is a song by Queens of The Stone Age called Go With The Flow (see here). In Portuguese, it would be something like seguir com o fluxo.
