"bite the bullet" translated as "engolir o orgulho"? I have seen it traslated like this.

 

If I were to say "engula seu orgulho" I'd say "swallow your proud". I've already used the idiom "bite the bullet" to convey the following ideas, though:

 

 

"go for it"

"take the bull by the horns"

"face up to"

"grasp the nettle"

"lose your fear"
