So whenever someone dies I have a hard time crying of feeling huge amounts of grief, and I feel so bad about that. It's not like I didn't love the person; I do and I miss them a lot, but I just can never seem to feel as sad about it as other people. It might be because I'm an atheist and find death to be just a normal part of life, but I'm not so sure.

This fact has made other people, like my brother, very frustrated with me because I wasn't whaling on the ground for the passing of our grandmother. There was never a moment of sudden realization that she's gone, I just accepted it and went on with my life.

I also don't like going to cemeteries or focusing on death that much, and the idea of my own mortality isn't frightening either.

Is this normal?

People react and process grief differently.

Normal? - Absolutely.

wow, you're pretty heartless.

It's actually physically harder for men to cry, due to biology: you don't need to prove anything to anyone though, all that matters is what you feel.

I didn't cry when my grandpa died but I miss him very much. I guess I was just prepared for it. People die, you don't have to lose your head over it.

In fact people who are strong during these times can be a shoulder for those more affected to cry on. So it can be a good thing OP.

that's true. when my grandma died i was right there when my mom got the call. I mean it was expected for the most part as she was in poor condition but it still hit my mom pretty hard. I was there for her the whole time as she tried to grasp the situation, and I give the news to the rest of the family since i didn't want her to have to repeat it over and over.

thanks, i didn't really think about that until now.

My friend (what a normie would call a best friend) died not to long ago. I miss him and wish he could have experience more in his life, but I couldnt cry. My eyes were just as dry as they are now. The rest of his normie friends and most of my friends were crying.

I just realized it's something they feel differently than me, I dont feel the over emotional "sad" but i was feeling. I think those who cry profusely dont see death as a necessity to value life.
