It depends on how close they were to me. Even then, I don't grieve for long, I work though it pretty quickly.

Well, if I know where the person who died is going then I'm not too sad. I'll see them again someday, after all.

Someone once told me something very wise. "When we grieve, we are grieving for ouselves. Those that have passed away no longer feel pain or pleasure, joy or sadness here on Earth. They are at peace."

I almost died once, was in a lot of pain and I wanted to die at one point. So I know, if someone is suffering, then they will be at peace when they pass away. When my Grandfather died they said it was a blessing in a way.

Just positive thoughts like that really. Life goes on, and you will have days where grief will strike you again if something reminds you of them but its good to cry.

If weve bonded before Ill remember every bit of it. I'll miss it and probably regret not doing this and that with that person.

In the end it'll slowly fade into the back of my mind. Probably.

I haven't grieved for anyone that's died yet. I've seen one of my friends die, my grandmother, and some relatives. Still hasn't fazed me yet.

I just grieve at the funneral, but after that I get on with my life. This might sound harsh, but people die. We all will eventually do it, but until then I will live my life the best as I can and grieving about something I can not change is one of my priorities. I have had two friends commit suicide and I don't feel sorry for people like that at all. Just throwing that out there.

There is a lag for me. When it happens, I feel no difference and carry on like usual.

Then randomly a few weeks or even months later, it'll strike me. Having great female friends is a lot of help at this point.

I'll spend a lot of time with them watching shows and having them nurse me. I might cry randomly, talk things out and have drinks! A few days of this and I'm ready to face the world again like usual. Still a little unstable...but I can manage on my own at this point.

If I let the grieving process take its proper cycle and let everything process, there is a great reward at the end. Things feel lighter, brighter and more vibrant after the whole thing. For a short period of time, it'll feel like I really 'woke up', this is a great time to instal a new habit in my life. Last time, it was learning how to lead a more healthy lifestyle by eating the right foods....a life changer.

Lastly, I don't try to forget it. I see it as an extremely valuable lesson that came at a very great price. It's an experience that I can draw upon at a time of need for someone else. It's weird how things work, but when you can relate to someone's pain and situation, you help bring them out of their trap and help them feel less lonely and shitty.

I look back upon the times I knew with the people I lost and remain thankful for them.

I don't really grieve, don't really get sad, I just laugh and joke about the situation. lol

I don't grieve. Just naturally unemotional when it comes to death. Ironically i grieve more for the people i love that are living. for good reason.
