Well, it's sad that they aren't here with us anymore, but not THAT sad, because we know we'll see them again, and we know they're in a great place. Still really sad, but less sad than if we believed that dead people simply winked out of all existence. Does this answer your question?
Not sure I believe in an afterlife, but this is pretty easy. You'll miss the person. An analogy would be if you someone you cared about (parent, sibling, or friend) had to move to the other side of the world. It would be better for them, but clearly you wouldn't be able to talk or see them. You would be happy for the other person, but sad at the same time.
in my book, death's not difficult 4 all the people. it's hard for most of the people and not all of 'em. take this as an instance: I want to ruin your laptop and after a week I want to buy the latest lap top of apple 4 u. In this case do u deal with me? would u let me ruin your current laptop? absolutely. would u be upset if i ruin ur current laptop? of course not. u absolutely agree with me about it. but if I say I want to ruin your current laptop and maybe I will buy another(better or worse) 4 u. in this case u don't know if it's OK to let me ruin your current laptop or not. and u prefer to carry on with your own laptop computer.(also read comments)
Becuse we are still human and we still have human emotions and weaknesses and its hard to be parted from someone you love, esp if its going to be a long time. Being Christians doesnt make us any less human. We can be happy if we know theyve gone to be with God and still grieve being separated from them. It still hurts even knowing they will be better off.
When you love someone, you become vulnerable to the sorrow that comes from losing that person. But love is all-important, and God doesn't want us to hold back on loving people to avoid future grief. The Bible also makes it clear that our grief will be temporary, while our joy will be forever! The Bible gives us the hope of a fabulous future when we will be reunited with our loved ones
It's death. Knowing when someone leaves this world is painful, but when you know they're in a better place, it's better it's still painful. But it's natural when you feel that way when someone dies, but life will go on everyday but you have to know that if you were close to the person who died, that they wouldn't want you to be sad about their death
