"That's so sad!", I tell everyone. What are other expressions I could use?
There're actually 2 separate questions:
Q3a = Can I say "I can't take it!" to mean I find it hard to accept that he's moving away?
In other words, how do you say or express "I find it hard to accept
that he's moving away", what's another word or phrase for finding something such as bad news hard to accept? Or can't accept. Something like "I can't accept it!" (that he's moving away) but that sounds awkward as an interjection.
Q3b is all the different ways to express my sorrow
(Everyone understood this question and I like the answers, too).
