Is it normal that i refuse to talk about the deceased in past tense?

Ever since my grandmother passed on, and also since I had a crush on a deceased celebrity, I have refused to talk about the deceased in past tense. It just hurts too much. I refuse to talk about them as if they are gone and don't exist anymore and it honestly enrages me when someone is talking about someone (especially someone I know) who is passed on and they say "was" or "were" when talking about them. I can't even use the word "dead" or "died" when talking about someone I knew who has passed on. I like to believe that they still exist somewhere, like in heaven, and one day we'll all be reunited with our loved ones just as we remember them.

Is It Normal?

  • No that's not normal, death is a part of life.

    • You are only alive for such a small part of existance. That small part is your life that's why it should be cherished.

  • Normal to be hurt, but it’s unhealthy way to live this way [in denial].

  • Only you can decide when and how you should talk about tragedy in your life...

    You have to process things and there will be a day that you can move on.

    I wish you the best with this,

            • No, Michael Jackson himself. Especially in the jackson five. Watching those old videos of him as a kid and he looked so sad I just wish I could have given him a childhood he deserves
