Being stoic - July 1st 2017, 10:02 PM

This is a follow-up to my previous post. After I heard of his death, I immediately got back to what I'd been doing and haven't shed a tear. It's not a bad thing is it?

No, that is not a bad thing. Everyone copes with death in a different way. Some people begin to mourn early, while others need more time and begin to deal with the death later. It doesn't reflect on you in a bad way; it just means that you are taking everything at your own pace.

It's not bad. I have relatives who lost a loved one and didn't cry when told. Everyone reacts differently and grieves differently too.

I don't think it's a bad thing at all. Everyone's grief comes at different time, some sooner than others and some more severe than others. When you do begin to feel sad, even if it's six months from now when it finally hits you, don't be afraid to reach out even if it's long past the grief period for everyone else. Also, you can continue to reach out to us on here if you need to.

I'm sorry for your loss.
