    i felt like i should feel something,
    I'm sorry for your loss.

    You can apply 'shoulds' to your own behaviors whenever you want, but it makes no sense to apply a 'should' to emotions. It's counter productive.

    Everyone responds to crises differently. Some people go calm, keep their head, and focus on behaving in ways that are productive and helpful to others.

    So instead of creating unnecessary drama over what you don't feel at the moment, trust that you'll feel whatever you NEED to feel in the privacy of the future, but for right now, you're qualified to tend to others in a caring and respectful way.

    Head high, tend to family, and you'll thank yourself later.

    PS: Meltdowns are over-rated.

    Very good. The most important thing we can do for anyone is to show up for them. We're less capable of that when we are in our own way. You'll experience your tenderness in your own time and in your own way.

    Again, I'm very sorry for your loss.
