What is the Difference Between "On your side" and "By your side"?
I am learning English these days. I searched on Google for the difference between "On your Side" and "By your side", but I did not get the answer, so I am asking this question here. I guess "On your side" is about being supportive, but "By your side" has the same meaning? I found that "On your side" is more used on internet. What is the difference between these terms? When you use them?
If I am 'on your side', it means I have adopted a similar position to you in a debate, game, competition or conflict. An example is Pres. Bush's "You're either with us or your with the terrorists" comment. It means "If you're not on our side then you're on the side of the enemy".
If I am 'by your side' it means I am with you every step of the way during some difficult event that you're going through and am offering support, encouragement, guidance, etc.
