    How to use "Ersatz" in context?

    Words can never fully capture the depth of feelings that we experience when we lose something, whether it's a loved one, a pet, or a treasured possession. In those moments, when we are all alone and understand what it truly means to feel bereft, we are confronted with our own mortality and the fleeting nature of happiness.

    So when something we value is taken away from us, we feel a sense of loss. This is exacerbated when the thing that was taken away was not just something material like a cherished possession, but also a symbol of something deeper, a connection to a person or past event.
