Hello Temiloluwa! It may not be familiar to you, but in North American idiom, the phrase to "get over" something that happened usually has the implication "what happened was not a big deal"- which I don't think is quite appropriate here, and I'm sure you didn't mean. I thought you might want to know!

Thanks a lot for the enlightenment Bashu.
I'd always used the phrase wrongly then.
Any alternative which could be used instead?

Hi Temiloluwa, thank you for your response! I would suggest maybe "I hope you heal from this"?

"So sorry all these happened to you.
Hope you heal completely from this, now, and in the future.🙏🏽
I hope more positive doors will open up to you.

The Tech Community loves you. ❤️"

Be well
