My cat's recent death... My little baby :(

My condolences.

Sincerely, I have problems to understand why death makes people so sad. I had lots of pets during my life and various died (age, illnes, snake bites, accidents etc), also some close persons passed away, like my uncle, my best friend, my grandfather etc; and I never become sad for more than one day when someone dies.

It's called grief. They're sad because they've lost something dear to them and they can't get it back.

So as long as it isn't "cute", you're good?


Confrontational people make me sad

But death is ever a possibility, don't matter how safe someone could be, exist incontable ways to die; if something is alive, death isn't exactly unexpected.
As I said, already lost dear persons and I am not a necromancer, consequently, I can't get them back; I have some lack of empathy, but I am not made of stone, if that is so significant I expected to feel something significant instead of become a little sad for some hours.

Most people try not to think about death when trying to live their life. They know it's possible and inevitable, but thinking that too much can lead to overprotection, paranoia and fear#. Because death is not on most people's minds all the time, the death of a loved one is more surprising and has more impact on them than someone who sees it a lot and has to think about it.

You'll also notice this only happens when an emotional connection is established. You can watch thousands of strangers die and feel nothing but when your mother dies, nothing holds the tears back (unless your mother was a tyrant or something). Of course, some are more susceptible to their emotions than others. Some cry, some don't.

#This is why cotton wool parents exist. They're so afraid of their children getting hurt or killed that they try to protect them from everything and end up raising children who can't deal with danger of any kind because they've never been given a chance to learn how to.

Everyone reacts to that inevitability differently. Knowing something will happen is much different than the event actually happening.

As for why, scientifically, death makes people sad, it's a survival skill that aided in the continuation of a species that felt it. If you feel sad when someone dies, you're more likely to try and prevent it. One side effect was feeling sad for deaths that cannot be prevented.

Oh sorry to hear that.. I had to pick my first cat up off the road many years back...(I was only about ~14 at the time.) so I know how it feels. :'(


HypnoBitch said:

Also had a cat die recently. I feel your pain.


The lack of 3D judy porn.


Having been rejected by someone who genuinely loved me.


General depression and not having a way to get over it.
The overwhelming feeling I get when it feels as if the world is collapsing around me and I can't stop it.

also

When a story ends but it doesn't feel right, like, it had it's happy/sad/empty ending, and there's nowhere left for the story to go, but you can't help but want it to keep going.
and inversely
when a story keeps going, and it passed a good ending point, but it shits the bed and decides to keep rolling in it well past when it should have been put down.
or when a show is rebooted or a move is remade and its utter shit that doesn't hold a candle to the original.

When I'm not quite sure what the future holds, and then I realize I don't know what I even want from it.

The constant fear, not of mortality, but of the mortality of character-
knowing that my story likely wont pass more than a few generations before I become forgotten like the countless unnamed victims to history before me.

Still not being able to draw dicks well...

I was captivated by the thought of being forgotten... Up until the part where you said you couldn't draw dicks.


The fact that I'm not all that great of an artist yet.
I mean I'm getting there but how can I keep my hopes
high when the most resent thing I draw can't even compeat
with the next guy. It not like I'm trying to top anyone
art wise, more that looking at other peeps art makes me
realize how bad mine is. ~ ~)

Yes all art is subjective meaning by definition there
really isn't a better or worst since what could look bad to
you could be the best thing to another but, It's more
of a matter of detail and how it sucks I haven't yet reached my
mark of a smoother and cartoony take on PSAG's art style =P

Edit:
TL;DR
The insecurities I still have about my art bum me out
when I think about them. Partially about the art but
mostly the fact that I haven't came to peace with it.


When a machine breaks down, never to move again...


I wanma draw big meaty guys fucking each other but I have no artistic talent at all! That makes me sad.


Not being able to cry anymore. Sometimes that thought makes me sad. This ability comforts you in its own way.


Cruelty, to animals and to children, sometimes I can't sleep at some of the horrific things that are going on in the world. Heard of some horrors happening to adults like torture and all that, I feel awful at not feeling quite as upset. Not sure if that is wrong or sort of, normal.

I agree. Physical or mental, it's unacceptable.

Stories about a dragon where the dragon dies at the end. Even if the dragon is evil, I still feel sad.

Ever played Drakengard? I highly recommend it. Sorry about the spoiler but it's only a mild one.

I've never played it, but I had a friend who had it so I know at least partially what it's about.

Why would you recommend Drakengard to someone who just said that they don't want to see dead dragons...

I recommend playing Demon's Crest.

He doesn't Have to follow it and I don't know how severely he dislikes it. I though that he might like it to a degree like some people like to be scared or watch sad movies. Besides it's a self sacrifice in the bad ending.

I didn't say I don't want to see dead dragons, I said that stories in which dragons die make me sad.

A large portion of my art on here shows dragons dying, and out of that stuff most of it was personal art, which I highly enjoyed drawing.
