Coping with loss
Let yourself feel the pain and all the other emotions, too. Don’t tell yourself how to feel or let others tell you how you should feel.
That is what ticks me off about family and others that THINK they can tell me to just get over it and such.
Until they have experienced loss of a spouse they have no right to tell me what to do.
I need more help than I am getting to deal with wife's death but I don't have many options without a car to count on.
Even the grass growing between the stones in a side walk will remind me that life will force its way out.

So you are being eloquent, which in it self is grand, in a scant manner.
Your derivation of it sounds VERY LIKELY to me, because it means something along the lines of...
Getting your point across in very few words. (Getting straight to the point without waffling on and on and...)
You just waffled, Ha Ha
I salute you!
That's what I said. I guessed it. Yeah. It wasn't even in my old faithful Webster, I love that thing.
I had to dig through words to find a plausible conjunction.
That was fun.
Words are fun, all most as enticing as reading body language or trying to understand non-human communication. The red in Gordis' text are my inserts.
