Is it wrong to get upset with someone who has a low emotional response/does not generally feel empathy?

Let's say that someone close to me died. I talk to my friends about how my grandma or favorite uncle died last night, and they stay quiet for a while before turning the conversation back to the video game babe they'd like to bang. Ask them why they didn't listen, they say they just don't know how to respond, that what I'm experiencing isn't logical, or that that they're just not empathetic and can't help it. Is this a reasonable response?

Would you rather they fake feeling empathy when there really is nothing there? Getting upset with another because they do not portray the feelings you initially wanted them to portray is a bit silly. I think maybe what you want isn't them to feel a certain way, but to support you and lend a shoulder, which would be much more understandable because friends are supposed to be a supportive figure in your life.

They probably ignored it because it wasn't in their mood and they didn't feel like talking about depressing shit. Don't expect to force people to feel empathy when they're just having a good time taking about a silly fantasy of theirs.

Yeah its wrong. I mean they are your friends but that doesnt mean that they will feel sad just because you are. The problems you have in your life are only yours. My points is that they wont change their emotions just because you have different ones.

If they say what you're experiencing "isn't logical", that sounds hard to defend and you have every right to get upset with them. Otherwise, leave them be, it's not their relative that died. If it was a family member seeming not to give a shit a parent died that would be another reasonable reason to get upset with them, depending on the situation. But you can't expect people to get upset about people they barely knew, everyone has their own shit to work through.

Thanks. How can I stop expecting people to respond emotionally or a certain way?

It's not people it's just him
You know him
If you expect it from now on you're just a fool

have some empathy yourself and try to understand what it would be like to not have any
