|Haha, I find it funny how several people read my post as directly comparing loss of a parent and loss of a relationship.|
In fact, I was comparing how someone comments on someone else's loss in both situations.
Of course it's relevant. I am not saying anything about the loss. I am saying that it's kind of unfair for anyone to judge others based on their reaction to a situation, especially if those who are judging have not experienced it themselves.
Here it is again,
Your first post makes me think of people who haven't lost a parent, thinking that it is absurd that other people are sad that their parents have passed on. Everyone dies eventually, right? True, but that doesn't mean it is out of character to be sad in that situation.
