Learn Chinese in China

Re: 割舍, the term appears in an earlier sentence:



En niang cried for a night and a day. She was crying over the (coming) separation from her step-son. It was crying over loss. Yanzhi in his body and mind was filled with gratitude. He felt that his studying abroad was a good circumstance which En niang was bestowing on him.


Here 割舍 seems to mean “to part with/ to give up.” When it appears later in   可怜的女人,她就这样割舍给你看, could it be translated: Pitiful woman, in this way she shows you her sense of loss?


What follow is:


She is making him feel sorry for her and grateful to her so she can hit him with her demand for compensation that he marry her neice, which would give her a more secure bond with the Lu family? She would not only be the widow of their dead son, but the aunt of their grandson’s wife.  Does this make sense?
