What does it mean if you don’t feel sad when people expect it?
I have no issue feeling sadness or crying. But it’s like if I’m supposed to feel it, I shut off. Recently my grandfather was in the hospital and I knew I should be worried but I couldn’t FEEL worried or scared or sad. I was more stoic and just wanted answers. Same with my brother. He got in an ATV accident and I couldn’t make myself respond to the text messages telling me about it. The most I could muster is “keep me updated.” I’m usually super emotional, so I don’t know what makes this different. Also, my grandfather and brother are both fine.

You become numb during high stressful situations...like a mild shock, dissociation.

All this means is you accept things as they are.

Either you didnt like the reason for being or the person. Or no one has shown you any.
