As Told By Over Soil

Some people say “You get used to it” and perhaps it is to soooo many things. I wonder though. Maybe. Maybe not. The difference is in the context. I know that I learn about myself with grief, as every passing is different, just as every relationship is. Who has an immunity to loss? Is the loss of one person, a vaccine for the next passing? I think not. As I say: Every passing is different, just as every relationship is.


Thank you so much Over Soil for this beautiful and simple submission. I love the metaphor of a vaccine for loss; it really hits home that this is something that never really leaves us.

If you would like to submit a post on what grief and loss means to you, you can email in at or you can comment below 🤍

All our love and gratitude,

Katie and Evee 🤍

  1. I don’t “get over” my experiences or people, they are absorbed. Sometimes quickly and sometimes with agonizing slowness. It will depend on how much the event and person meant to me. Somethings are never absorbed; they act as bittersweet reminders of the world as it exists for me. Thanks for this post.

  2. It’s not that you ‘get used to it’ or ‘get over it’…One learns to ‘cope with it’ I will never ‘get over’ the loss of the love of my life. And I certainly cannot get used to it even 5 1/2 years later. I miss him as much today as I did when he died. You learn to cope. And however long that takes you? That’s how long it takes.
