Those who are emotionally stronger will try and move on with their life, this doesn't mean they don't care, it just means they are stronger if they move on instead of living in the past and upsetting themselves, however some people may be that upset by the fact they have lost someone it can take them a while to get out of the rut they put themselves into. ...read more.
