Unhappy My 4 brothers and sisters have all died - March 5th 2014, 02:41 AM

I have two brothers and two sisters who all died before birth, before I was born. I don't feel sad over the loos, though. Is there something wrong with me?

Hi CyborgZecora!

I hope you're OK.

NO! There is nothing wrong with you. You never knew your two brothers and two sisters. You could be sad that they never had a chance at life. But even then it won't help anyone if you keep feeling sad.

So enjoy your life!

GBH - Craig!

Hey, there!

First off, I'm sorry to hear about all those losses; I can't imagine the pain your family has gone through.

I have to agree with Craig on this one. You most likely don't feel to much "sadness" because you never met them. Now if you had met one (or all) of them, and then they passed away, you would actually have memories, thoughts, and emotions to go off of, thus would result in being sad/upset. So to answer your question, there is absolutely nothing wrong with you in regards to the lack of emotion/feelings you're displaying with this situation.

Keep your head up, my friend.


Best wishes,
Chris

I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...
