"Stand up to something / someone"
This is a phrasal verb, which means that you have had enough of a situation and you will now speak to try and change it for the better.
A: my friend is always telling me what to do and makes me go out when I don't really want to.
B: he doesn't sound like a good friend, you need to stand up to him and explain that you will not do everything that he likes all the time.
A: yes, you're right. I need to be stronger and more confident in myself.
