Sink in

DEFINITION

Slowly becomes apparent. Eventually, it becomes understood. What is sinking in is one’s review of the facts and eventually realizing what the truth is. The phrase can imply that one is a slow learner. (Compare to Grok.)

“I was sorry to tell her, but after two failed marriages I didn’t think she wouldd ever have another wedding and I had to wait for her to let that fact sink in.”
