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.
