Can we acquire a deep sadness from an event that never goes away?

Asked by Shippy (9873points) March 10th, 2012

Can this shape all our subsequent beliefs and therefore actions? No matter our age at the time?. I ask because a chain of events occurred in my life that I feel left me alienated.

First my dad passed away, then my mother and oddly an ex girlfriend in the same week. I was alone with my dad when he died and at his funeral.

I did not have a funeral for my mother because of this.I was alone too with my mom when she died. I remember some lady’s hugging me when I left and I was so grateful. But I felt completely alienated, on another planet, I’m not sure I ever came back. Came back to believe that there are humans who care.

I don’t want to have this feeling of alienation any-more though. How can I restore it? As I feel my depression started around this time.
