I understand that people dont understand and why should they if they haven't been through it, maybe grief for him was only when a person was old and expected to die in which case may mean that it took him 2 months to get over it but in cases where a person was young and it was very unexpected why should people laugh and go on about how they should be over it or they're weird. It makes me so angry and its so unfair that people are able to laugh because they dont have to experience it!!
My condolences on your loss, I truly understand I lost my mother early this year. On Grief it depends on the person and the further they are removed from that person the less impact it has on their life. Sometimes that it is how some pepole deal with loss by laugh so it does not impact them as much.
I lost my younger brother 23 yrs ago and I am still not fully over it. I can accept yes fully over it no. Unfortunately that is how a lot of people are and when they can not relate to that situation they make fun, laugh or joke about it. Yes it makes me angry also.
If someone does that to you I believe you should tell them that you think that is insensitive and explain why and maybe then they might understand.
I wish you well and the loss does get better over time, but in some cases it never heals good luck and God Bless.
