I May Seem Crazy - July 9th 2009, 06:43 AM

But ever since Michael Jackson's death, I've not been the same.
I never met him, but have been a fan since infancy. I cried June 25th when the evening news told the story. I cried watching his funeral services. I bawled when Paris got up and spoke about her father. All I can do is sit around and listen to the great music he left the world with and think of what an awesome person he was. Anyone who mentions MJ in a bad way while I'm around, I flip out on them. I don't know why though, since I never knew him.
I can't stop thinking about his death though, wishing there was some way to bring him back.

You definitely don't seem crazy to me. Michael Jackson's music and life has clearly impacted you--it only makes sense, then, that you are troubled over his loss.

Everyone copes with death in different ways. The grief process looks different for each of us, and will depend a lot on how we are each affected, individually.

It seems that you were able to see past the media frenzy, the accusations of horrible things, and to look directly into this man's music and into the soul of the person he was; you, in a sense, were able to forgive him for being different and hold firm to the belief that guilt must be proven. A lot of other people were not, and I can only imagine how hard that was for him in life.

Crying is okay. Crying is healthy, it is good. Talk about things when needed and remember, always, that TeenHelp is here for you.

Someday I will be strong enough to lift not one but both of us.
I told you to be patient
I told you to be fine
I told you to be balanced
I told you to be kind

Hey (:

When you lose someone important to you it is only natural for you to grieve that loss. Michael Jackson was such a talented man and his music touched so many people's lives. It upsets me to no end that he couldn't see how special he was and choose to make some of the decisions he did. He is so much more than just some cultural icon. He wasn't only influential but he was also revolutionary. Before him, no African American 'pop music' artist was ever able to become so renowned. He went beyond the fame anyone could have ever predicted and was able to be come the 'king of pop'. Unfortunately, it is clear that the fame, the pressure, and the effects of an unhappy childhood took a toll on him. Not everyone agreed with some of the things he did. However, because of his differences and unfounded accusations he was branded with a label that just wasn't right. Of course, I can't be the judge of what happened but if you can't prove a crime then by our law he is not guilty and people still took it upon themselves to act like he was. Despite the media feeding frenzy that surrounded him all his life you were still able to get past the slander and appreciate his talent. I admire you for that and I don't think there is anything wrong with missing a special part of your life that has been forever changed. Although he is no longer alive he will live on forever through his music. If you ever need to talk so someone about how you are feeling feel free to PM me. Take care and hang in there.

Lots of love <3 Mimi

As long as we can dream, there will be unicorns.
