How easily we forget our loved ones once they are gone.....

Why is it that when we lose a dear one, we mourn for a few days, a few weeks, a few months and in some cases few years, and then we accept the fact that they are no longer with us? Is it due to the inherent human nature to slowly accept facts as they are? Or is it due to the fact that we are too cold blooded.

Does it then mean that we will continue to remember our dear ones every second the same way we used to when they were still alive? I really dont think so. But we will miss them and that void will continue to shrink in most cases untill one day we wont be missing them at all

I lost my father 6 years ago through cancer and I still think and pray for him every day. I often go to phone and tell him about something, but yes the pain is not constant as it once was.

So when the pain reduces.....is it because we begin to love them a little lesser slowly??

I do not easily forget my family members who are gone. I think of them everyday. I have to accept the fact that they are gone and not coming back but I do not ever forget them. My life has to go on but it will never be the same. Holidays are especially hard when you have so many good memories of your loved ones. I think the term cold blooded is a bit harsh.

It's something we have to do... If we had to be sad all the time for everyone we lose then everyone would walk arround in a constant depression.

I don't think this is a true statement. Humans go through a grieving process and it depends on the individual exactly how long this process goes on before acceptance happens. Having said that, just because the loss of a loved one is acepted it doesn't mean they are ever forgotten. I don't believe that most people are cold hearted at all.
