Unhappy I dont know why its really getting to me so much - July 8th 2009, 11:41 PM

Okay this is going to seem probabaly a little ridiculous but i just cannot get over Michael jacksons death. Its really upsetting me and i dont really know why because i didnt know him or anything but its making me think about death and because my nan has cancer and shes getting old its making me think about whats going to happen when shes gone. If im like this upset over a popstar i loved but never met what am i going to be like when she is gone

I just feel like i cant even escape, people are always talking about him, making horrible jokes, hes always on the TV and newspapers and i cant stop getting upset about his death. I dont get it

Its one of those things when death smacks you in the face and takes someone you think will be around forever you realize that you're not immortal and the concept of EVERYONE dies sometime comes into play.

Death can be a scary thing and when its real and take someone like that it can really affect you.

Nicolette has a point--the death of a public figure can be a major "wake up call" to people. Understanding that someone so well know, even someone with fame and glory, is not invincible.. that can be hard. Also, considering most of our ages here on TeenHelp, Michael Jackson is one of those people who has simply ALWAYS been there. Realizing that he will not be there is strange.

You also may be feeling sadness because you understand what his loved ones are going through. He did have three small children and people who loved him. I don't think it's ridiculous at all that you are finding this hard to make peace with.

Time helps to heal wounds, though. I'm sure things will begin to make more sense in time.

Someday I will be strong enough to lift not one but both of us.

Your not the only one finding it difficult to deal with too, I am also I wasn't his biggest fan but I loved his music and all the sick jokes are really upsetting, It's just because it's so public and some people are being so cruel and disrespectful, it's hard to realise hes gone.
It makes it even more upsetting that he's left three children behind.

If you ever need to talk PM me anymore.
